Panoramic Health and Leading Houston Practice Partner to Drive Value-Based Care, Early Disease Detection, and Superior CKD Management for Patients in Texas
TEMPE, Ariz. – June 1, 2023 – Panoramic Health, the leading integrated value-based kidney care platform and the country’s largest physician-led CKCC participant, has further expanded its footprint in Texas through a partnership with Southwest Nephrology Associates, LLP (“SWN”) of Houston, Texas.
Panoramic Health’s full service, integrated, value-based care platform currently serves more than 75,000 patients in Texas through partnerships with leading nephrology practices in key geographies including Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and West Texas.
SWN will utilize Panoramic Health’s unique, physician-led, value-based care platform to integrate care coordination and utilize superior data and analytics across 6 clinic locations to slow disease progression and improve patient outcomes for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and end-stage kidney disease (ESKD).
The partnership marks the fifth partnership Panoramic Health has made with leading nephrology practices in Texas in the last 12 months. Most recently, Panoramic Health expanded its value-based care services through a partnership with Houston practice, Nephrology, Dialysis, & Transplantation Associates, P.A. at The Kidney Institute (TKI), and the strategic acquisition of its vascular access center, North Shepherd Dialysis Access Center.
Panoramic Health’s novel integrated approach to value-based kidney care puts nephrologists at the forefront of care delivery supported by seamless care coordination, leading to patient engagement rates 2x greater than non-nephrologist led care coordination vendors. The platform’s superior patient engagement and care coordination drive improved outcomes across the continuum of care through reduced costly hospital admissions, fewer hospital readmissions, and improved planned dialysis starts.
As the country’s largest physician led CKCC program participant, Panoramic Health is increasing access to holistic care at reduced costs for more than 27,000 Medicare beneficiaries in 18 KCEs managing more than $1.5 billion in risk spending.
“We have truly appreciated working with SWN on value-based care initiatives through their participation in Panoramic Health’s CKCC program. It is even more gratifying to see that they quickly recognized the value Panoramic Health could provide as part of a comprehensive partnership based on their initial VBC affiliation,” said Rocky Chanana, Senior Vice President of Business Development. “We are excited to work alongside the leaders at SWN as we collectively enhance care for patients with kidney disease in the Greater Houston area, while also ensuring the long-term success for the nephrologists.”
“Panoramic Health’s mission to deliver improved outcomes through participation in value-based care programs and initiatives, while maintaining nephrologists at the center of care delivery and as owners of the business is in direct alignment with SWN’s mission to provide the best possible care for patients with CKD and ESKD,” said Dr. Charles S. Henry, Partner at SWN. “We are excited to embark on the new world of value-based kidney care with this industry leader by our side.”
