Evolent Health, a company that provides a value-based care platform to health systems and physician organizations, has entered into a long-term partnership with Banner Health Network (BHN).
Evolent will work with BHN's leadership and doctor teams to provide software-based tools and data resources that help doctors better understand the health and risk of their Medicare Advantage patient panels.
"This partnership will help us provide additional tracking tools and administrative resources to the physicians within Banner Health Network that serve Medicare Advantage populations, supporting the quality of care their patients receive," Lisa Anderson, CEO at Banner Health Network, said.
Evolent and BHN will also implement Identifi, Evolent's value-based care performance management platform, across the state, enabling providers to share data for better care coordination. Identifi pairs with electronic medical record (EMR) technology to identify at-risk patients and chances for intervention. Evolent will also provide BHN with point-of-care workflow integration and support for day-to-day operations.
"By collaborating with our partners at Advisory Board, Evolent and Banner Health Network will look to accelerate the pace of change and rate of adoption for value-based care programs and tools in Arizona," Evolent Health CEO Frank Williams said. "We are excited to formalize this partnership with Banner Health with the objective of delivering higher quality, lower cost care for patients across Arizona."
