Who do you serve?
Physicians & Medical Groups
Health care reform, value-based purchasing and patient and payer demand for better health outcomes are driving the industry toward accountable care. Whether you are a small to mid-size practice or a large medical group, Primaris offers the solutions you need to transform your practice.
Health Systems & Hospital Organizations
To operate in a value-based environment, more efficient resource utilization and better health outcomes are key. Primaris helps you learn how to reduce avoidable hospitalizations, re-admissions and length of stay – all of which have direct impact on quality and cost.
Health care reform and increasing reimbursement pressure from Medicare, Medicaid and other payers continue to affect organizations across the care continuum. Skilled nursing facilities, assisted living centers, home health agencies and hospices must find ways to gain operational efficiency and enhance revenue. Primaris can help you position your facility for success in this competitive environment.
Do you have references, and how satisfied are your past clients?
Yes. We always provide references during the proposal process.
How much do your services cost?
Cost depends on the scope of work. We’ll work with you to fully understand your needs and agree upon budget before we begin work.
