VillageMD Welcomes Nearly 400 Providers to
Transform Healthcare Together in Southeast Michigan
CHICAGO and ANN ARBOR, Mich. – Nov. 19, 2021 – VillageMD announced today that Huron Valley Physicians Association (HVPA) will join the organization in early December.
Nearly 400 experienced providers participate with HVPA, including primary care physicians and specialists. The independent providers will continue to offer their healthcare services throughout Southeast Michigan, including Jackson, Livingston, Lenawee, Washtenaw and Western Wayne counties.
“We’re thrilled to welcome HVPA’s experienced providers to VillageMD. Our organizations have a number of synergies, including our mission to deliver the best possible patient experiences in a value-based care model,” said Tim Barry, CEO and chairman of VillageMD. “This partnership will offer enhanced services and support to accelerate the exceptional care the providers are offering patients in Michigan.”
VillageMD strengthens independent primary care providers, known as affiliate providers, with the tools to become leaders in value-based care. VillageMD offers the solutions and services they need to improve clinical outcomes, enhance patient and physician satisfaction, and lower the total cost of care, benefiting patients, providers and payers. HVPA’s physicians can benefit from using both VillageMD’s enhanced technology as well as the continued use of HealthFocus, a population health tool.
“After learning about VillageMD, we knew we are stronger together than apart. Both our respected providers and their patients will benefit from VillageMD’s support in helping independent practices be successful in a risk-based reimbursement environment,” said Jeffrey Sanfield, M.D., president of HVPA. “We’re aligned with VillageMD’s vision for a care delivery model that’s focused on value-based healthcare. This also gives the best opportunity to offer patients in Michigan options and choices when selecting a healthcare provider."
