Vision Source South Florida Members Join Baptist Health Quality Network

By
HOUSTON— Vision Source announced Wednesday that its South Florida area members are joining with Baptist Health Quality Network a physician-led network of health care providers who are working together to improve the health of patients within the greater South Florida metropolitan area. Patients in the Baptist Health Quality Network (BHQN) will have access to the clinicians in the Vision Source network of optometric practices in Broward, Monroe and Miami-Dade Counties.
 
“On behalf of the Vision Source clinicians, we truly appreciate our new relationship with Baptist Health Quality Network and we are excited and prepared to provide an enhanced health care experience serving the highest level of vision and eyecare services,” said Vision Source president and CEO Jim Greenwood. “This innovative relationship will allow us to provide management and treatment to those living with eye diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma in a collaborative manner with the physicians who comprise BHQN’s clinically integrated network. Vision Source is extremely pleased to become a component of BHQN’s solution for population health management.”
 
Baptist Health Quality Network’s more than 600 physicians collaborate with Baptist Health South Florida to develop a comprehensive, patient-centered network of health care providers dedicated to improving the quality and value of health care in South Florida. “In this era of health care reform, quality and cost effectiveness are driving factors, and health care providers must better understand how to improve the health of targeted patient populations by shifting from a volume-based to a value-based reimbursement,” said Jonathan Fialkow, MD, FACC, executive medical director for BHQN. “The network was created to engage physicians in this important transformation of care, and we are confident this relationship with Vision Source will allow our patients to receive better access to exceptional vision and eyecare services.”
