Global Healthcare Alliance Signs 20-Year Agreement with CardioVascular Care Providers

 

HOUSTON (Dec. 14, 2017) – Global Healthcare Alliance (GHA), the leader in value-based care solutions and services, has signed a new 20-year agreement with CardioVascular Care Providers (CVCP), one of the nation’s first value-based care delivery organizations, extending the two companies’ longstanding partnership.

Founded in 1984 by world-renowned heart surgeon Dr. Denton A. Cooley, CVCP is a pioneer in operating one of the country’s first successful value-based care programs. CVCP operates as a financially and clinically integrated group of physicians offering cardiovascular services under prospective bundled pricing arrangements. 

“CVCP sets the standard as a successful, prospective value-based care program,” said John Adams, President and Chief Executive Officer, GHA. “We’ve been fortunate to work with an organization that has sustained clinical and financial success through its prospective value-based care delivery model. We look forward to continued success and a long-term partnership as we expand the CVCP network statewide.”

Under the new agreement, GHA will continue to provide the analytics, operating structure and technologies enabling CVCP to excel in clinical excellence and provide prospective bundled payments – a critical need of commercial payers, employers, and patients today seeking more predictability and less variability in healthcare costs. A large part of CVCP’s success is attributed to GHA’s value-based claims adjudication technology, Axia™, which automates the conversion of fee-for-service claims into a single, bundled claim. Axia also facilitates payment for all providers based on defined contractual fee schedules, as well as, management of the shared financial risk under the program.

“CVCP was originally established as a value-based delivery organization more than 30 years ago because it was the right thing to do to align providers, employers, payers and patients around the financial and clinical results of our program,” said CVCP’s Chairman of the Board, Patrick J. Hogan, M.D. “Our founding principles are even more relevant today as the market embraces this shift to fee-for-value. We’re proud to have a partner in GHA, a proven leader in this space, and we look forward to continuing our work to improve patient outcomes and contain costs.”   

GHA manages value-based care and reimbursement programs for multiple clinical specialties for clients nationwide. These programs prioritize quality as the measure of value in making alternative payment programs sustainable and efficient, aligning the aims of patients, employers, providers and payers.

The Buckingham Honors Resident Dr. Jan van Sant at Dining Venue Sneak Peek

Within a matter of weeks, The Buckingham will unveil The Rosewood Grill, the newest casual dining venue at Houston’s premier senior living community. But residents had a sneak peek during a pre-opening reception honoring resident Dr. Jan van Sant, for whom a private dining and wine room in the new space are named.

Dr. van Sant, a wine connoisseur, is a former president of The Buckingham Resident Council, as well as the first resident to hold a full voting membership on the Board of Directors of Senior Quality Lifestyles Corporation (SQLC). Stocked with bottles of fine wines, the space offers a private dining experience. The Rosewood Grill is part of the Tower at The Buckingham expansion project.  The Tower is scheduled for move-ins by mid-November, shortly before the Thanksgiving holiday.

“Dr. van Sant is a fitting namesake for The Rosewood Grill’s private dining and wine room,” said Joe Anderson, president and CEO of SQLC. “As a beloved resident and board member, he has selflessly served The Buckingham and its sister communities, and he embodies the spirit of welcoming we feel in each of our communities. The Rosewood Grill and its private dining and wine room will be a special place where residents and their loved ones can spend time together for years to come. We couldn’t think of a more appropriate space to carry Dr. van Sant’s name and commemorate his legacy of service to The Buckingham and our organization.” 

“I was incredibly surprised and humbled by this honor,” said Van Sant. “In regards to the event itself, it was about the last thing I expected to occur. I’ve been privileged to serve not only the residents of The Buckingham, but the entire SQLC organization, while sitting on the board.  It’s truly something special in my life. Our goal is to ensure that residents living in our communities have everything they need to live life to the fullest, and I’m honored to have played a role in that mission.”

Dr. van Sant is a 34-year oil industry veteran with particular experience in the areas of exploration and production research and technology. After retiring, Van Sant was the executive director of the American Geological Institute Foundation, which raised more than $20 million for certain AGI-sponsored educational and other national programs. He later served as associate director of the Foundation. Dr. van Sant also served as Assistant to the Vice President for Research at the University of Houston, and was a member of advisory committees at various times at institutions such as the University of South Carolina, University of Utah, University of Kansas, and Rice University.

“There is no one more deserving of this honor than Dr. van Sant,” said Darrell Sheaffer, executive director of The Buckingham. “His contributions have helped tremendously in our community, and it is a privilege to thank him in such a public way. We look forward to meeting the needs of more seniors in Houston, and the dedication of residents like Dr. van Sant helps us positively impact the lives of seniors each and every day.”
