Lafayette, IN.— (Apr. 14, 2020) — and Greater Lafayette Commerce announced a partnership today that offers a total health care and population health management solution to Commerce members that dramatically improves health outcomes and decreases risk. As a leading provider of advanced primary care, Proactive MD partners with employers and employees to deliver personalized primary care and ancillary services at on-site and near-site health and wellness centers. Coupled with patient advocacy and coordination of Care Beyond the Walls™, Proactive MD elevates the standard of care while flattening the rising health care cost curve.
“We are honored to partner with the Greater Lafayette Commerce, an organization that shares our commitment to growing businesses,” said John Collier, Proactive MD’s CEO and founder. “Everyday, we hear stories about patients who are not receiving quality care, slipping through the cracks of the healthcare system. We have a heart for these people, and we are committed to finding solutions so that every organization can provide their employees with care that doesn’t quit. Proactive MD is absolutely committed to providing Greater Lafayette Commerce members with the same high standard of care we would expect for our own family members.”
Proactive MD’s proprietary Advanced Primary Care model offers a full-service risk management solution that drives down the total cost of care. Proactive MD health centers offer chronic condition management, preventive care, acute care, behavioral health, patient advocacy, wellness, pharmacy, diagnostic testing and more. In addition to maximizing the services available on-site, Proactive MD also addresses cost and outcomes for high-cost claimants, negotiates preferred rates for specialty care and assumes responsibility for patients through the full care continuum. This dual focus on care within and beyond the walls of the health center creates a total health care solution for employers and employees.
“We hear from businesses about the rising cost of healthcare and have been actively seeking solutions to help them,” says Scott Walker, CEO of Greater Lafayette Commerce. “Proactive MD is already in our community, providing world-class care for Tippecanoe County and two of the school districts. We wanted to expand access to members of Greater Lafayette Commerce.”
