Signify Premium Insight: Why Aledade Chose to Bring VBC IT In-House with Curia Acquisition

Published: March 28, 2023

The news headlines continue to flow from Aledade, the largest network of independent primary care practices in the US. In the last month alone, it has added 450 value-based care (VBC)-focused independent practices to its network, acquired VBC analytics firm Curia and announced that Cigna’s Healthcare Medicare Advantage customers are now eligible to receive VBC from its network.

All three announcements speak volumes for the inexorable shift towards VBC in the US. Aledade is already deeply invested in this opportunity: more than two million patients in its network are covered by more than 150 VBC contracts across Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Medicaid and commercial payers. The company now boasts more than 1,500 independent primary care practices and health centres within the 40-plus VBC-focused Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs) it owns. And, as its network of VBC-focused primary care practices expands, demand for the resources these practices need to deliver VBC is growing.
