Evolent has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the majority of Valence Health that is expected to close later this year. Together, the organizations will be able to offer comprehensive services and technology to health care providers in the transition to value-based care. The acquisition will positively impact more than 1.8 million lives across 23 long-term operating partners at closing, comprised of provider-sponsored health plans, accountable care organizations and full-risk entities.
In 2015, the Department of Health and Human Services announced new goals for value-based payments. HHS is urging private sector payers to match these goals, and has been driving regulation changes to incentive providers to take on more risk. Explore the difference among payment structures and the capability investments required for success.

CEO Frank Williams and Chief Technology Officer Chad Pomeroy also detail why the Evolent model is unique, and how it can make such a difference in the ultimate success of our partners.
Evolent's Complex Care program was validated by the Care Innovations™ Validation Institute, an organization that provides health care industry consumers with credible validation of population health outcomes.
