Our history.

A decade ago, a team of healthcare executives asked themselves a question: What are the most pressing issues in healthcare, and how do we fix them? For the system to thrive, the adversarial relationship between payers and providers had to end. This called for an innovative approach, with economics and data shared freely across the continuum of care. It meant incentives for behavior – not punishments – supported with the right information and tools.

These executives set out to fulfill their mission by establishing the first collaborative payer, Essence Healthcare. Under their model, Essence did not own the continuum of care, but worked collaboratively with providers in a virtual integrated delivery system. Essence Healthcare established new value-based reimbursement models to align incentives, affording providers the time to more proactively manage and coordinate patient care. It also developed cloud-based technology to deliver actionable clinical and financial data to providers, along with the tools to leverage that information.

The results were nothing short of remarkable. Costs dropped. Quality improved. Patient satisfaction increased. And, provider engagement grew. Essence Healthcare had united the continuum of care in a common purpose. Today, with the nation’s healthcare industry still struggling and the concept of value-based accountability on the rise, Lumeris continues to share these transformative technologies, programs and methods with health plans, hospitals and other organizations.

How our model for value-based care delivery helps produce improved, more cost-effective outcomes across populations.
