Valence Health, a leading provider of clinical integration, population health and value-based care solutions, announced today that it has entered into a collaboration agreement with Humana Inc. (NYSE:HUM) to help provider organizations transition into Medicare Advantage (MA) value-based arrangements.

The agreement between Valence Health and Humana supports providers with a robust set of population health capabilities and tools enabling the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care. Valence Health, which has established familiarity with Humana’s operational and clinical requirements, will work with their provider organization clients to deliver end-to-end services, software and analytics which advance their clients performance in a value-based arrangement with Humana.

The collaboration between Valence Health and Humana is aimed at leveraging the combined population health management and value based reimbursement expertise of both organizations as well as their long standing commitment to support providers as they transition into value-based agreements.

“We are excited to collaborate with Humana to help providers efficiently enter into value-based care contracts by providing the expertise, technology and operational infrastructure many providers need to be successful,” said Todd Stockard, President of Valence Health.

“The agreement between Humana and Valence Health leverages the unique capabilities and depth of experience of each organization in a set of offerings that enables providers to be successful in a value based agreement with the health plan,” said Renee Buckingham, Enterprise Vice President, Provider Development Center of Excellence at Humana. “Providers who are interested in advancing through our Accountable Care Continuum and becoming accountable for both the clinical and financial risk of the population they manage now have the benefits of the experience the collaboration brings.”

Currently, Valence Health provides technology, analytics, medical management and third-party administrator (TPA) services to provider-centric organizations with more than 1.5 million fully at risk or insured lives in the commercial, Medicare and Medicaid space. Humana is the second largest Medicare Advantage provider, with more than 2.9 million members.
