Reimagining the New Frontier of Value-Based Care
Founded in 2015, Equality Health is a population health risk management company that improves care delivery for underserved populations. Equality Health’s model allows independent physician practices to consolidate multiple value-based contracts within a single network that offers a unified incentive program administered through an integrated technology platform. For health plans, Equality Health represents a single-source partner with a network that is fully enabled for success in alternative payment models. And for patients, Equality Health improves access to primary care and enhances coordination between primary care physicians, specialists, hospitals, and the community-based organizations that address many non-medical, socio-economic determinants of health.
The Finback investment will help accelerate Equality Health’s growing partnerships with multiple regional and national payers, as well as a rapidly growing primary care network. This will make hundreds of thousands more Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, and ACA exchange health plan members eligible for the holistic, culturally competent services offered by the Equality Health care model.
