Texas Health Care Joins Privia Medical Group

Thursday, August 04, 2016

Privia Health, LLC, a national physician practice management and population health technology company announced today that Texas Health Care (“THC”) has partnered with Privia Medical Group – North Texas in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Texas Health Care was founded in 2002 and comprises over 200 healthcare providers. It is one of the largest and highest performing independent physician organizations in Texas.

“THC is a large, sophisticated medical practice, but as healthcare moves quickly from fee-for-service to value-based reimbursement, we needed a partner that could bring added resources, technology, expertise and support to our physicians and patients,” said Dr. Larry Tatum, CEO of THC. “There is no better partner than Privia if you care about managing the health of populations.”

“We are very proud that THC has chosen to partner with Privia to provide physicians in the Dallas-Fort Worth market an opportunity to remain independent and succeed in value-based care,” said Jeff Butler, Founder and CEO of Privia Health. “In collaboration with payers and aligned health systems, we look forward to replicating our success in other markets, helping physicians in North Texas lead the transition to a new delivery system that rewards not just for sick-care, but for delivering better patient outcomes. We couldn’t be more excited in having THC as an anchor partner in this effort.”

Dr. Larry Tatum has been named CEO of Privia Medical Group – North Texas and together with existing THC and Privia leaders, will lead the expansion of Privia in the market by inviting other targeted high-performance medical practices to join.

Privia Medical Group, a national physician practice that’s been purpose-built for population health, has consistently been one of the fastest growing physician organizations in the nation for the last 3 years. Privia now comprises over 1500 providers operating in the District of Columbia, Virginia, Maryland, New York, Georgia, Houston, and Dallas-Ft Worth.

Privia was recently named one of the highest performing medical practices in the country by both the HFMA and athenahealth, and Privia’s ACO (Privia Quality Network) ranked in the top 15% of ACOs in the nation in its first performance year.
