Reno-based Spine Nevada and Tahoe Fracture & Orthopedic Medical Clinic in Carson City, Nev., merged to create a 60-provider group, which is the largest musculoskeletal care platform in the state.

The combined practice will continue to operate under its existing brands, which include Tahoe Fracture, Spine Nevada, Swift Urgent Clinic and Vein Nevada.

Tahoe Fracture will join Spine Nevada under Phoenix-based Healthcare Outcomes Performance Co.'s Nevada care network. It will have access to HOPCo's clinical and quality infrastructure, IT tools and claims analytics to partner with health systems, provider groups and payers.

The partnership aligns with HOPCo's mission to team with musculoskeletal practices, health systems and payors to develop value-based care programs — such as bundled payments, shared savings and population health — that improve quality and reduce the cost of care.

"The addition of Tahoe Fracture to HOPCo's platform in Nevada is a big step forward in creating a high-performing clinically integrated network in the Reno, Carson City and Lake Tahoe markets," said Wael Barsoum, MD, chairman of HOPCo Nevada's board of directors, said in a June 30 news release. "Tahoe Fracture's commitment to exceptional outcomes and patient-first model makes them an ideal partner to continue to transform the musculoskeletal care market in Nevada."
