Jacksonville, Fla.-based Southeast Orthopedic Specialists and Phoenix-based Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company partnered to form HOPCo Southeast Specialty Care Network.
HOPCo SSCN focuses on musculoskeletal management services and seeks to partner with other orthopedic practices, health systems and payers in Florida.
The new partnership will include Southeast Orthopedic Specialists' 13 board-certified orthopedic surgeons as well as its sports medicine physiatrist, pain management physiatrist and chiropractor, among the other specialists in the group. The practice provides joint replacements, spine care, emergency orthopedics and regenerative medicine.
HOPCo SSCN incorporates HOPCo’s quality outcomes tracking analytics and software, claims analytics and value-based resources which will help partnering healthcare organizations with cost savings.
"The HOPCo Southeast Specialty Care Network will provide high-quality healthcare organizations in the region with the opportunity to rapidly participate in unique value-based care programs in an integrated manner; something that will be very popular in the relatively fragmented Florida market," said Donnie Romine, CEO of SOS, who will serve as president of HOPCo SSCN.
