ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 07, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Privia Health (Nasdaq: PRVA) and OhioHealth, a nationally recognized not-for-profit health system, today announced a non-binding memorandum of understanding to form a strategic partnership and launch a medical group for independent providers throughout the state of Ohio. The partnership is subject to the negotiation and execution of definitive agreements by both parties.
The partnership is expected to support the growth and enhance the performance of OhioHealth’s existing clinically integrated network (CIN). Privia Health and OhioHealth are expected to provide a new alternative for Ohio physicians and provider groups that choose to remain independent and care for patients across all payment models as they move into value-based care arrangements.
New providers are expected to join the new medical group and access the Privia technology and services platform to leverage its data connectivity through a breadth of interoperable solutions and population health expertise to reduce administrative burden, enable care insights and collaboration. Upon execution of the agreements, the new medical group is expected to participate exclusively in OhioHealth’s CIN and Accountable Care Organization (ACO) for access to value-based arrangements.
Based in Columbus, Ohio, OhioHealth is a nationally recognized, not-for-profit, charitable, healthcare outreach of the United Methodist Church. Serving its communities since 1891, OhioHealth is a family of 35,000 associates, physicians and volunteers, and a network of 12 hospitals, 200+ ambulatory sites, hospice, home-health, medical equipment and other health services spanning a 47-county area.
