About Paladina Health

Paladina Health is a wholly-owned subsidiary of DaVita Healthcare Partners, a Fortune 500 company that provides a variety of health care services to patients throughout the United States and abroad. DaVita Healthcare Partners is recognized for delivering superior clinical outcomes in its various service lines and for the contributions it makes to the communities in which it works.

While historically focused on delivering dialysis services in the United States, DaVita began expanding its scope in 2010 when it saw the national imperative to find innovative new models that would materially improve the cost and quality of healthcare in the country. Further, DaVita believes that the way to drive these improvements is by having independent physicians (not hospital-employed) who are incentivized around, accountable for, and supported in delivering high quality integrated care. Since 2010, DaVita has been investing in businesses that harness the power of accountable and aligned physicians.

About Us: The Model

About the Paladina Health Medical Home

The Paladina Health Medical Home is based on a physician-access approach to primary care. We give patients direct access to their physician—and keep physician patient panels about 70 percent lower than traditional primary care practices. We combine increased physician access with a data-driven approach to healthcare to deliver results for our clients and patients.

Our program is designed to increase patient engagement, enabling physicians to:

  • Improve overall health in the patient population
  • Drive better, more appropriate healthcare system use

  • Easy-to-schedule appointments with significantly shorter appointment wait times
  • No co-pays or co-insurance, minimizing the cost barrier to accessing the healthcare system
  • Telemedicine benefits, including phone appointments and secure email with the physician
  • Convenient locations

What is Paladina Health?

Imagine the doctor’s office, the way it used to be… where doctors knew their patients and their families, and took great care of them all.

These days, doctors are so hard to reach you often skip going. And, if you do manage to get an appointment, you’ll probably spend more time in the waiting room than you do with the doctor and who knows how much it’ll cost. Watch this short video to learn how Paladina Health works differently for our patients.
