Privia Health and Children’s Health announced they have entered into a strategic alliance. Through Privia Health’s second health system alliance, Children’s Health will advance its physician alignment strategy by connecting its clinically integrated network of independent physicians, Pediatric Partners, to a comprehensive suite of services available by joining Privia Medical Group North Texas.
“I’m thrilled that our alliance creates new opportunities to align with local pediatricians who are delivering high-quality care to children and families,” says Shawn Morris, CEO, Privia Health. “Our physician-led model enables providers and health systems to build healthier communities by allowing physicians to focus on what matters most: caring for their patients.”
“Since establishing Pediatric Partners in 2014, we have seen incredible progress and growth as an organization,” said Julie Hall-Barrow, Senior Vice President of Network Development and Innovation at Children’s Health. “Our membership needs have evolved, and through our alliance with Privia Health, we are able to improve our network in a way that will be truly meaningful for Pediatric Partners members and independent pediatricians in our community.”
Privia Health is a national physician organization with more than 2,500 providers in multiple states. Privia Health’s proprietary cloud-based technology platform and innovative approach to patient engagement and physician-driven wellness will bolster Children’s Health’s initiatives to create better integration for its network, both clinically and financially, and reduce administrative burden across all providers. Members will continue to receive many of the same services they value with Pediatric Partners, including the Nurse Advice Line, in addition to a comprehensive, robust set of services to support the growth and performance of their practice.
“We believe this relationship delivers tremendous value to local pediatricians through an enhanced alignment with our family practitioners and women’s health providers,” says Ronald Blair, MD, a Privia Medical Group North Texas pediatrician. “Privia physicians benefit from innovative tools, technology and comprehensive services, which help them navigate healthcare landscape while delivering the highest quality patient experience.”
