Clayton, Dubilier & Rice and Vera Whole Health today announced that they have entered into an investment partnership that will advance Vera's delivery of next-generation, value-based healthcare.
Vera's innovative model is centered on whole person, one-to-one population health built around an integrated care team of primary care physicians, nurses, and health coaches supported by purpose-built clinics and technology. Vera has a track record of engaging patients and supporting core health challenges such as chronic condition management and behavioral health issues. Vera's high-touch, primary care-led model delivers differentiated patient experience, quality outcomes, and cost efficiency for employer and payor partners.
The investment partnership, drawing on CD&R's value-based healthcare expertise and relationship network and operationally-focused capital, will support Vera's continued rapid expansion and innovation. Vera operates a purpose-driven primary care model to serve diverse workforce populations across a broad set of employer partners. Vera also partners with innovative payors to support smaller, fully-insured employers.
"We believe CD&R's stellar reputation, strong values, and deep expertise building next generation healthcare delivery platforms form the basis of a strong long-term relationship that can improve employer-sponsored healthcare in this country."
