What You Should Know:
– Lumeris is launching Tribus, a value-based care accelerator for practices to convert from fee-for-service to value-based care using a community based-model.
– Under the direction of Dr. Chuck Willey, CEO of Tribus, who is a practicing internal medical physician in St. Louis, doctors will participate in physician-to-physician training and mentorship for anyone looking for a better way to deliver at-risk care for senior populations.
Why It Matters
The Medicare population is projected to be nearly a quarter of the U.S. population in the next ten years. With health systems influencing the vast majority of expenditures for healthcare delivery in the United States, Tribus supports coordinating the experience of care across all venues of delivery. This is accomplished in a shared risk partnership structure where Lumeris is aligned around driving performance outcomes with the participating physician partners.
“It’s an accelerated, community-based approach for practices to convert from fee-for-service to value-based care by learning directly from doctors who have operated in this model for decades,” said John Fryer, President of Tribus and SVP of National Markets at Lumeris. “For practices that want to convert to total cost of care arrangements and are ready to make the leap, this is hand-to-hand work that drives quality patient outcomes, satisfied consumers and solid financials for physicians, payer partners and ultimately patients.”
