Evolent Health and Houston Methodist have partnered to drive value-based care in Texas for improving the health of Medicare patients.

"It is exciting to work with a world-renowned and innovative partner like Houston Methodist on its value-based care strategy and operations," said Evolent Health CEO Frank Williams. "Its mission of providing high quality, cost-effective care is closely aligned with our own, and together we can further advance the positive impact Houston Methodist has on the health and wellbeing of its community."

Together, the organizations are taking a physician-led approach to deploying a value-based care technology infrastructure and clinical programs, including advanced analytics and predictive modeling, to help identify patients that might benefit from targeted clinical interventions early and with improved accuracy.

Through this closely-aligned collaboration, Evolent supports Houston Methodist in the development of Houston Methodist Coordinated Care (HMCC), a physician-led ACO.

"In our collaboration with Evolent Health, our goal is to provide high quality, cost-effective health care that delivers the best value and health outcomes for our community," said president and CEO of HMCC, Julia Andrieni.
