Market Context

The shift to value-based care is compelling specialty practices to improve quality and reduce total costs of care in an effort to deliver better outcomes. While many practices are looking to lower treatment costs for immediate savings, weighing treatment decisions in terms of optimizing patient outcomes, safety and total costs can be a challenge. Success under MIPS and APMs will require specialists to inform treatments with an attention to value, the use of evidence-based care paths, and even personalization powered by genomics.


Integra Connect Optimal Value GPO was founded so practices could thrive amid the new realities of a post-MACRA world. It offers the industry’s first evidence-based GPO with contracts based on value and measured in terms of efficacy, safety, and total cost of care. Our aim is to provide specialists with enhanced financial and clinical value via lower acquisition costs and optimized performance on value-based contracts. We do this via technology-enabled adherence to science-based and data-driven clinical treatment pathways – so practices perform better on their value-based care efforts.
