Firefly Health partners with Vori Health to improve specialty care

Watertown, Mass.-based Firefly Health partnered with New York city-based Vori Health to provide patients with integrated care for muscle and joint pain, according to a Sept. 13 news release.

The traditional process for seeking musculoskeletal care typically involves multiple doctor visits, which include referrals and in-person appointments. This partnership aims to create a more patient-friendly experience that allows patients to skip the referral process and access the full spectrum of care on their first visit. The approach delivers a collaborative diagnosis and care plan up front, according to the news release. 

Jeff Greenberg, MD, co-founder, and chief network officer at Firefly Health, said musculoskeletal conditions deeply impact patients' daily quality of life and, if left untreated, can require invasive treatment. 

"We look forward to working with Vori Health to provide Firefly patients with immediate access to skilled specialist teams to get their musculoskeletal conditions resolved in a holistic, personal environment," Dr. Greenberg added. 

Firefly Health and Vori Health will use bundled payments based on a one-year timeframe. This arrangement removes the burden of copayments and facilitates preauthorization. The two organizations will continue working on more challenging economic models like condition-based capitation.
