NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New Mountain Capital, LLC, a growth-oriented investment firm that currently manages more than $20 billion in assets, announced an exclusive commercial partnership between Signify Health and Remedy Partners, two of the firm’s portfolio companies.
Signify Health delivers health care services in the home for more than one million unique Medicare Advantage members through its national network of 4,000 doctors and nurse practitioners. Remedy develops and operates bundled payment networks that manage more than $9 billion of spending in Medicare and private insurance programs. The joint offering will leverage Signify’s national network to support Remedy’s episode of care programs for patients transitioning from inpatient to home settings.
“We are true believers in the Remedy mission to radically refocus how health care is financed and managed around the experience of the patient and believe this joint offering will prevent unnecessary readmissions, allowing patients to remain at home and out of the hospital,” said Matt Holt, Managing Director at New Mountain. “As we refine this joint offering, we expect to deliver integrated capabilities to lower costs and improve outcomes for Medicare Advantage Plans and Commercial Insurance Plans. There’s simply no other company in the country other than Signify that could bring such a valuable offering to Remedy’s already strong foundation.”
“This partnership will enable the hospitals and physician groups we serve to achieve sustainable savings while improving the lives of patients,” said Steve Wiggins, founder of Remedy. “Signify complements the services delivered by our networks and fills important gaps that help us identify social determinants of need and other barriers to a successful recovery.”
“I have admired Remedy’s bold undertaking for years – they are truly transforming the way care is paid for, measured and organized,” said Kyle Armbrester, Signify’s CEO. “We are thrilled at the chance to use our highly personalized service to positively impact the lives of so many patients. We are in the midst of a generational opportunity to transform health care delivery and Remedy is the ideal partner for this endeavor.”
The partnership will begin offering a collaborative Care Transitions Program (CTP) in the first quarter of 2019, with plans to introduce additional programs serving providers, payers, employers, veterans and the government in the years to come.
