2016 Shared Savings Success
Thanks to the hard work and dedication of the premier team and our partner physicians, we achieved over $26,3 million in shared savings in 2016, an increase of more than 200% over 2015, making it our best year yet!
Premier Independent Physicians
Premier Independent Physicians (PIP) is our next step in providing more choices for stable, comfortable, convenient, quality care. Starting with 2 Premier-owned ultra-modern, clinic locations in 2017, we’ll eventually expand to over 34 locations throughout the DFW area.
Expanding Our Promising ACO Future
Premier Care Community ACO will provide an entry for new physicians into the Premier family and Premier Patient Healthcare ACO will continue as a next-level ACO track that recognizes and rewards legacy providers for their ongoing service and dedication to higher performance standards.
The Buck Grows Here
Every program and solution we offer is optimized to help physicians earn more and keep more of what they earn. To prove it, our ACO divisions pay participating physicians a more advantageous split than most ACOs throughout the nation.
Putting Ourselves on the Map
We’ve come a long way since the 12 original founding physicians in 2012 and are now over 500 physicians strong and growing.
Premier Ancillary Services (PAS)
Our integrated ancillary services unit, PAS, helps us to provide a better service experience to patients while maximizing efficiencies and capturing additional revenue for our division and physician partners.
Why Go ACO?
The Affordable Care Act of 2010 ushered in a new era in healthcare, one that emphasizes quality-measured and cost-savings based payment structures. And even though we are only now at the beginnings of this shift, providers are already feeling negative effects of a value-based payment structure.
With penalties and restrictions rising under new regulations like MACRA and with competition from larger institutions competing for available revenue, independent physicians are at a critical crossroads. In order to survive, let alone thrive, in the new healthcare reality, it’s more important than ever for independent physicians to make careful alignment choices
