Business Model and Entities

Our Business Model

The WellMed business model is physician-owned and patient-centered, similar to an Accountable Care Organization (ACO). As an early adopter of the ACO philosophy, WellMed has continuously demonstrated how the health care delivery system can work by reducing costs and improving care while also enhancing and saving lives.

This model is designed to provide the most efficient, comprehensive and proven care techniques to treat the whole patient—physically, mentally and socially—at each visit. WellMed works with physicians, specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants and staff who all share one important characteristic: genuinely caring about patients and their health.
