Over the past two years, Addison, Texas-based MpowerHealth has invested more than $7 million to develop data analytics and information technology to support clinically integrated networks in Texas, Ohio and Georgia, among other states.
The investments focused on building a foundation of data analytics and ensuring independent physician practices are supported with key personnel hires.
"The massive infrastructure that we have developed to support our clinically integrated networks will allow independent physicians to maintain their autonomy while giving them access to the tools needed to improve outcomes and bring value-based care to their patients in need," Scott LaRoque, CEO and founder of MpowerHealth, said in a March 1 news release.
MpowerHealth is creating clinically integrated networks for musculoskeletal physicians in several areas of the country. In Texas, more than 40 practices are included in MpowerHealth's network.
In October, spine surgeon Adam Bruggeman, MD, was named CMO of MpowerHealth and named to its advisory board.
