One of the country’s largest surgical practices is teaming up with Regence BlueShield and Signify Health to transform healthcare for providers, employers, individuals and families in Washington state.
Through the Regence Episodes of Care (EOC) program, managed by Signify, Proliance Surgeons and other providers are paid for delivering improved patient outcomes and lower costs over the course of a care episode. Episodes cover all of the care an individual receives for a procedure or condition, across settings and acuity, over a defined period of time.
Proliance has more than 425 providers, including more than 250 board-certified physicians providing treatment at more than 100 care centers in Washington state. By participating in the Regence EOC program, Proliance will bring its expertise in delivering exceptional outcomes and an excellent patient experience to Regence members in need of specialty care -- such as orthopedics, sports medicine, spine, ear nose & throat, general surgery, ophthalmology, obstetrics & gynecology and urology.
“Regence is a pioneer in designing value-based arrangements that drive greater provider collaboration to achieve more efficient and effective care,” said Francois de Brantes, SVP, Episodes of Care at Signify Health. “We’re delighted to partner with Regence to build a network of distinction that includes provider groups like Proliance, who share our vision for improving quality and the healthcare experience for the people we serve.”
