As reported by The Wall Street Journal, Clayton, Dubilier & Rice (CD&R) has made a substantial capital investment to help Vera Whole Health expand our next-generation, value-based advanced primary care (APC) model for employers.
The expansion means better access to best-in-class APC — which is proven to reduce utilization of costly urgent, emergency and specialty care, and reduces healthcare and benefit spending for organizations big and small.
APC is a revolutionary model proven to reduce overall healthcare costs and improve health outcomes by focusing the patient experience in primary care centers — which are equipped to manage 80 to 90 percent of all care-related needs. Professional health coaches, robust informatics, and integrated care coordination work in tandem with primary care providers to build trusting relationships where patients feel supported to take a more active role in their own health goals.
Vera CEO and Co-founder Ryan Schmid shared more about the advantages of the partnership in the related press release on PR Newswire. “This investment partnership opens up many new rewarding opportunities for Vera to continue to revolutionize healthcare, aligning patients, care providers, payers, and employers around more effective and more affordable care."
