Care Powered By Progress

Payers at every level will need partners committed to these ends: Providers who have the scale and infrastructure to handle large, growing, and high-demand patient populations; to collect meaningful data; and, to use that data for predictive actionable insights and to document patient and population outcomes. Leveraging the scale created by Progress Health System™, providers become essential partners able to better provide for our growth and expansion by providing smart, sure solutions to payers and communities.

Progress Health can help you contract with providers who bring these characteristics through a large geographic region. Progress Health System affiliates understand your needs and are willing to contract using pay-for-performance and risk-based methodologies.

Who We Are

The healthcare landscape has become increasingly complex and the pressures to simultaneously become patient centered, improve outcomes and reduce cost driven by the Affordable Care Act and delineated in the “Triple Aim”, will create the need for scale, for data infrastructure, for the smart use of technology, and for services that are evidence-based and also person-centered. Progress Health System™ is dedicated to bringing leadership, innovation, entrepreneurship, evidence-based and people purposed systems of care together to the benefit of affiliates and partners, including payers, advocates and our communities.
