The Premier Legacy

- #1 highest savings generated by a physician-owned 2014 MSSP startup in Texas and Oklahoma
- 4th highest savings generated across the U.S. by a 2014 MSSP startup.

We owe our continued achievement to the dedication and hard work of our Partner Physicians, and to the many effective programs and tools we’ve built and implemented together. We’re proud to have built an organization that places our physicians and their success first.
This commitment to a physician-centered structure will be ever more critical in upcoming years as new CMS regulations under MACRA pose an ever-increasing threat to independent providers’ livelihood—creating an unrecognizable and uncertain future.
As part of our promise to provide a secure, profitable future for independent providers we are pleased to announce the approval of our 2 new ACO tracks beginning in 2017. Premier Care Community ACO will provide an entry for new physicians into the Premier family and Premier Patient Healthcare ACO will continue under a new CMS contract as a next-level ACO track that recognizes and rewards legacy providers for their ongoing service and dedication to higher performance standards.
Thanks to the dedication and hard work of our physician community and our Premier management team, Premier is, and will continue to be, a powerful force for change in the modern healthcare landscape. We look forward to our ongoing journey into the future and to our many, mutual successes.
