The U.S. healthcare system has been criticized as fragmented, inefficient and costly. But Eric Beck, DO, MPH, president and CEO of Evolution Health in Dallas, and his staff are proving it doesn’t have to be.
 
They’re building new models of team-based delivery and processes that offer patients and providers a better experience. And they’re making healthcare more efficient and effective.
   

What is Evolution Health?

Evolution Health, a subsidiary of Envision Healthcare, is an integrated medical practice that specializes in managing and caring for patients with complex medical problems in their homes or other alternative settings. Beck oversees 2,400 team members who provide just over 2 million patient touches annually.

 

“Evolution Health is really focused on population health, post-acute care in the mobile environment, in-home care, and virtual and telehealth strategies for delivering care,” says Beck. “We work with health plans, health systems, hospitals, providers and ACOs that are trying to improve clinical and quality outcomes.”

 

Evolution currently offers hands-on healthcare in 10 states and extends its reach through virtual practices and telehealth into a total of 42 states.
