Our strategy
See what a carefully planned value-based care strategy can bring to your organization

As the pandemic recedes, and its financial impact is uncertain, many healthcare leaders are rethinking critical business components including their operations and payment structure. For sustainability, consider diversifying your portfolio and migrating fee-for-service (FFS) business to value-based care delivery models in a way that offers economic incentives for outcomes and healthier communities while providing resiliency from shifting service volumes. We understand value-based care initiatives can be complicated and time-consuming.

Maestro™ solutions offer value-based care program development and implementation and aim to ease the transition to a value-based model by providing a level of experience not often found on your own. Regardless of where you are on your road to value, a strong collaborator will meet you there, aligning current payment models with your value-based care goals.
