Mon Health has joined The West Virginia Provider and Hospital Organization (WVPHO), which combines physicians and hospitals into a single organization for obtaining payer contracts.
WVPHO integrates participants to produce significant efficiencies, including both improved quality and more cost-effective care.
“The ultimate goal is to improve health outcomes and reduce the cost of patient care,” said Michelle Coon, president of the CAMC Health Network. “This is possible through physician leadership and participation, as well as reducing the administrative burdens placed on the provider and payers with the end goal being to ensure the patient is getting the right care at the right time in the right setting.”
WVPHO plans to provide certain administrative services, such as delegated physician credentialing, network management, clinical oversight, and utilization review. WVPHO also adds a servicing component that provides the membership with liaison support.
“Mon Health joined the West Virginia Health Network along with other organizations who are aligned in patient centered care, reducing cost, and improving outcomes,” said David S. Goldberg, President & CEO of Mon Health System. “Together, this group is leading to make meaningful change and provides Mon Health another opportunity to bring improved affordability for our patients.”
WVPHO is a subsidiary of CAMC founded in 2021, the organization strives to grow a full range of primary care, specialists, and hospitals.
