The U.S. spends more on healthcare than any other high-income nation, yet has a lower life expectancy and worse health outcomes overall. Healthcare spending in the U.S. is five times that of the second-highest spending country (Canada). Despite this astronomical private spend, the U.S. is also third-highest in public spending, despite only covering 34 percent of residents through public programs including Medicare and Medicaid.
Elevation Health Partners helps our clients build the necessary internal capacity for ongoing, sustainable, large-scale transformation to new payment models. We break this transformation down to manageable steps and puts providers on the pathway to demonstrate and deliver better care.
Only about 40% of preventable deaths can be attributed to genetic predisposition or inadequate access to quality healthcare in the United States (McGinnis et al., 2002). Awareness is increasing that medical care alone cannot adequately improve health overall or reduce health disparities without also addressing conditions where people, live, learn, work, and play. These conditions are known as social determinants of health (SDoH).
When healthcare delivery systems expand their interactions with patients to SDoH concerns (the domain of the public health system), health outcomes improve.
Our approach includes advancing payment models and technical capabilities while combining that analysis with care management strategies that take a whole-patient view.
Until today, quality improvement programs have failed to spread rapidly, largely due to an unclear understanding of the financial benefit of these initiatives. The adoption of a Quality Strategy from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) and associated new payments models propel quality improvement initiatives forward.

Led by Deena Pourshaban, MPH, PCMH-CCE, our expert PCMH certified team will guide you through the entire process to achieve 2017 NCQA recognition, transition from 2014 to 2017 PCMH standards, meet annual reporting requirements, and complete your accelerated renewal.
We have assisted more than a dozen sites from five Los Angeles based FQHCs to achieve PCMH recognition. Our 100% recognition success rate is credited to our onsite collaboration with clinic leadership, administration, and care teams. Together, we develop policies and procedures, workflows, and reporting templates to comply with all PCMH criteria, including the most challenging efforts of empanelment, risk stratification, care transitions and management, data visualization, and quality improvement.
Elevation Health Partners helps nonprofit, advocacy, government agencies, and private companies study the impact of legislation and political considerations over a range of issues. The team at Elevation Health Partners specializes in navigating complex decisions involving regulated industries, complicated funding, and reimbursement strategies.
Los Angeles is characterized as densely populated and racially, ethnically, and economically diverse. Throughout the state, provider organizations and health systems face the challenge of a fragmented health system. While provider organizations serving vulnerable safety-net populations are in a slightly better position (given the shift of approximately 3.4 million adult Californians from the uninsured to Medi-Cal), many lack the strategy and resources to address primary care shortages. The delivery of efficient, integrated patient-centered care remains out of reach.
Our approach combines rigorous analyses and research with our extensive industry knowledge in order to develop a solution tailored to each of our clients' needs. Elevation Health Partners’ consultants work closely with all levels of management and staff to identify complex issues within an organization and effective solutions.
