Enliven was formed out of the parties’ ongoing value-based care relationship, according to the announcement. Enliven is part of a growing value-based care relationship between Vancouver Clinic and Humana. Value-based care is a holistic and integrated approach to health care that is centered around primary care physicians and their relationship to their patients.
“We are grateful for the opportunity to bring Enliven to Gresham, which will improve access to quality care,” said Jesse Gamez, Intermountain Region Medicare President for Humana. “By combining Humana’s strong focus on improved member experience and clinical outcomes and Vancouver Clinic’s long-standing commitment to patient care, we are able to offer primary care that is dedicated to helping our members achieve their best health.”
Humana has an extensive and growing value-based care presence. As of Sept. 30, 2021, Humana has more than 3.1 million individual Medicare Advantage and commercial members who are cared for by 72,800 primary care providers in more than 1,000 value-based relationships across 44 states and Puerto Rico.
“We know access to health care is critically important to good health. We think it’s important to provide care close to where patients live,” said Mark Mantei, Vancouver Clinic CEO. “Enliven by Vancouver Clinic will bring healthcare resources closer to patients and will offer integrated care teams that include doctors, nurses, health coaches, nutritionists, medication management, and social services resources to help guide patients through the complex health system and ensure their care addresses the whole person.”
Enliven builds on Vancouver Clinic’s legacy of offering high-quality, patient-centered care. The doctors get to know patients personally to meet their unique goals. More time with the doctor, physical and mental health support, regular health and wellness classes, plus welcoming clinic spaces make the Enliven experience unique in health care.
