VillageMD, a national primary care provider, in collaboration with Quality Care Providers, Inc. (QCPI), an independent primary care physician network in Georgia, has formed VillageMD-Georgia. This new organization will support providers across Georgia.
QCPI, located in metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia, was founded in 1993. With over 1500 physician members, it is the largest independent network of primary care physicians in Georgia.
VillageMD-Georgia continues VillageMD’s expansion into the Southeast, and contributes to the growth of the VillageMD network of primary care physicians throughout the country. VillageMD partners with over 2,000 primary care providers across six states.
“Our relationship with VillageMD marks a critical next step in helping our physician members enrich and expand their high-quality services to support the total patient across the continuum of care leading to better outcomes and lower costs,” said Michael J. Kinstler, MD, President and Chief Medical Officer, QCPI. “VillageMD’s mix of technology, enhanced contracts and an advanced business model will also enable physicians to succeed under value-based care, and for the first time, access rewards for providing great patient care.”
VillageMD-Georgia will leverage VillageMD’s data analytics, physician-based care coordination, and on-the-ground support resources. VillageMD’s clinical care model also aids its physician partners in providing personalized attention, education, and support to patients via integrated care teams of health coaches, diabetes educators, pharmacists, and resource coordinators to address patients’ medical, emotional and social needs.
“We joined forces with QCPI because we share a common mission—to lead physicians into an era of primary care delivery that is more proactive, highly coordinated and complete,” said Tim Barry, chief executive officer, VillageMD.
