Privia Medical Group – Gulf Coast Texas Launches in Houston
Dr. Mark Cone Serving as President
HOUSTON (November 2, 2015) – Privia Health, LLC (“Privia”), a national physician practice management and population health technology company, announced the expansion of Privia Medical Group (“PMG”) in the Houston and greater Gulf Coast Texas market. Privia Medical Group formed in the Gulf Coast Texas area to enable local physicians to succeed in private practice, while transforming the healthcare delivery system to one that rewards doctors for delivering high-quality care. Dr. Mark Cone, president of a 53-year-old private practice in Houston, will now serve as Market President of PMG – Gulf Coast Texas. Over 60 providers from 9 practices have joined Privia Medical Group – Gulf Coast Texas, with plans to partner with other top independent physicians in Houston, as Privia has already done in other markets.
“Uniting private practice physicians with population health tools and support is the most effective way to succeed in new arrangements that pay physicians more for high quality care,” said Dr. Cone. “Through joining Privia Medical Group, physicians will maintain their autonomy while having access to shared savings and performance-based arrangements with payers, as well as the critical support and population health management tools that will allow them to succeed in private practice.”
“We are excited to expand Privia’s services to the Gulf Coast Texas market,” said Jeff Butler, CEO of Privia Health. “This opportunity will provide Houston-area physicians the support of one of the most sophisticated, independent physician organizations in the country – one that has proven its ability to drive improved quality, cost-savings, and value into a market. We look forward to partnering with health plans, health systems, and other providers in the Gulf Coast Texas community in the pursuit of a better, more efficient delivery system that puts patients first.”
