A Strategic Formation
John Ford had a legacy vision to “go deep” by reforming healthcare from the ground up. He identified East Texas to incubate a laboratory for an independent managed primary care model ” under the radar” with less competitive barriers to launch a captive regional delivery alternative. Long before the ACA or MACRA, John believed employers and taxpayers needed a meaningful cost and performance alternative to high-cost insurance offerings. Building and pivoting on a core staff model primary care group structure, Phynet, John has grown participation to include over 300 physicians in upper East Texas and Southern Arkansas region. John has integrated other “low cost-high skill” services including home health, hospice, outpatient rehabilitation, chronic care management, and 24/7 care using performance-driven data analytics to become an intelligent, efficient, and prevention-minded healthcare delivery system. In 2017, Prime Care Managers ACO was approved by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide total care management for 22,000 Medicare Beneficiaries in the region.
