CURA Health Management Announces They Have Been Acquired by HealthLynked
The acquisition enables the development of HealthLynked’s new ACO Division, bringing value to patients and physicians.
Jacksonville, FL, June 23, 2020 — Cura Health Management (CURA), a value-based healthcare enablement company, and its wholly-owned subsidiary ACO Health Partners, a Medicare Shared Savings Accountable Care Organization, announced that it has completed the sale of both entities to HealthLynked Corporation (HealthLynked).
As a leader in providing patient-centric value services, CURA enables both physicians and physician aggregators to take advantage of managed risk and shared savings contracts. In essence, they have created an “easy button” for groups with limited experience to participate in value-based healthcare contracts by offering either a la carte services to existing aggregators such as Managed Services Organizations (MSOs) or Physician Health Organizations (PHOs) or the opportunity to join an existing wholly-owned value organization such as ACO Health Partners.
In addition to providing capital for growth, the partnership with HealthLynked brings a portfolio of new tools to CURA’s already impressive array of service offerings. As Co-Founder of both CURA and ACO Health Partners, Nicole Bradberry explains, “By joining forces with HealthLynked our ability to enable providers to deliver high quality and efficient care has significantly increased. In addition, the experience and resources of the HealthLynked team will expand our reach across the nation as more and more providers decide to participate in value-based healthcare arrangements.” Bradberry is currently the CEO of the Florida Association of ACOs, a ValueH organization, and is considered one of the leading voices in the world of value-based care.
Leading up to this acquisition, HealthLynked has successfully built a global healthcare network of member care management that connect doctors, patients and their health data through their healthcare technology. Their unique platform takes a patient’s health records and seamlessly connects them to their network of care providers. The purchase of CURA and ACO Health Partners, the most recent of their acquisitions, provides HealthLynked the ability to expand its reach into the accountable care and value-based healthcare arena.
Michael Dent, M.D., HealthLynked’s Chairman and CEO stated, “As we expand our global network and focus on improving care and reducing costs through our technologies, our new ACO Division will bring significant value to both our patient and physician members around the globe.”
