About Paladina Health

The U.S healthcare system is the most expensive in the world, yet it underperforms relative to other countries on most dimensions of health outcomes, access, efficiency and quality performance. Paladina Health’s mission is to deliver a new and fundamentally superior value to the way healthcare is delivered, financed and experienced, fixing what is broken. Our model was designed from the ground up with the goal of comprehensively addressing the main causes of poor quality and escalating costs in the healthcare system such as lack of physician access, fee-for-service billing that leads to the wrong provider incentives, lack of care coordination, lack of transparency into cost and quality, and lack of standards in care delivery.

We believe that by fixing these broken incentives, we can flip traditional healthcare on its head. We focus on the incentive structure between all parties - the physician, the patient, the organization providing benefits and ourselves as the provider of services. Our payment and care model have been developed to create a true partnership with our clients and are working together to engage patients and drive significant change to health outcomes, patient satisfaction, and cost.
