A Scottsdale-based health care company has added two new practices to its offerings in continued quick growth that started four months ago.
Apricus Health announced that Chandler-based Warner Family Practice and Flagstaff Family Care in northern Arizona have joined the company's health network.
Founded by a group of physicians in September, Apricus Health has quickly built a network of practices that seek to offer more for patients, incuding a focus on using technology, telehealth and "care navigators" to better help their clients.
Dr. Kishlay Anand, president and co-founder of Apricus Health, said in a press release that adding more practices seeking ways to contect with patients is the company's goal.
"They each share in our mission of making health care proactive, flexible, and convenient," he said. "Apricus Health has created a new care model by aligning primary care and specialist providers with personal care and the right technology to better serve Arizona’s population.”
Since its launch, 59 provider groups with 450 practitioners across Maricopa, Pinal, Coconino and Yavapai counties have joined the group.
Financial terms of the arrangement were not released.
“The decision to join the Apricus Health Network was an easy one, because we believe shifting the focus from episodic care to a continuous care relationship is the right one for our community,” said Dr. Andrew Martin of Flagstaff Family Care Clinic. “This is especially true in rural markets where accessibility to health care can be a challenge.”
