A trusted partner for high-quality, high-value healthcare.

We are a collaborative alliance of physicians, health systems, and employers driving a new level of clinical innovation and teamwork to enhance patient care, contain costs and improve the health of communities in Tennessee and surrounding states.

By transforming care delivery, improving health and productivity, and driving innovation, we’ve developed the formula for effectively managing the total cost of care. As a result, our model delivers high value reducing healthcare costs.

Access to Top Doctors and Hospitals Statewide

Our statewide network offers access to primary care doctors as well as specialists who can treat and help prevent health issues ranging from colds and broken bones to the most complex and rare diseases. We also offer access to a wide range of pediatric providers, including the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt as well as several pediatric after-hours clinics. Finally, patients can access more than 120 Quick Care clinics across the state for urgent care needs.

How We’re Different

  • Coordination: Our providers are committed to working together and coordinating your employees’ care. We share clinical best practices across the network, enabling high-quality care as well as sustained cost control.
  • Incentives: Participating providers are rewarded when they improve the health of their patients and communities while also improving the experience and efficiency of care. In short, doctors and hospitals are rewarded for keeping patients healthy, rather than billing for unnecessary services.
  • Clinical Programs: We provide enhanced focus and attention to preventive care to keep your employees healthy. We also provide access to free clinical programs like diabetes management, smoking cessation and medication management. In addition, we can provide extra support if your employees are hospitalized or need help navigating a complicated diagnosis.
