A SINGULAR FOCUS:

To Improve the Health of Medicaid Members.

We are Ampersand Health. A company devoted to improving the health of Medicaid populations with a new platform that engages members where it matters most — in their communities.

THE CHALLENGE

$500B in Annual Medicaid 
Spend with Poor Outcomes.

6815

annual per capita spend 
for Medicaid

4551

annual per capita spend 
for Commercial

For today’s Medicaid populations, gaining access to the right care is challenging. The current system doesn’t address issues that affect members, like poverty, limited access to care & lack of care coordination. It all results in care that’s reactive, fragmented & expensive.

50

higher spend for Medicaid
versus Commercial

OUR SOLUTION

A Platform Designed Expressly
for Medicaid Populations.

Different populations engage with health care in different ways. You can’t simply apply what works in Medicare & Commercial to Medicaid. You have to encourage Medicaid populations to become engaged in their own health. Leveraging our experience working with inner-city Medicaid populations, the Ampersand Health Solutions Platform activates members where they live, learn, work & worship.

OUR
PARTNERSHIPS

We Connect People & Ideas.

As our name denotes, Ampersand Health is a connector. We form partnerships with Medicaid health plans, local health systems & align providers to address health disparities.

Working alongside our partners, we:

  • Lower medical costs
  • Develop alternatives to the emergency room
  • Close gaps in care
  • Contract to capture the value created

OUR PEOPLE

Delivering Care in the Community.

We’re able to address social determinants of health, activate care & close the gaps in care by meeting members where they are — not merely where providers are. Our teams are able to activate care because they are part of the community. It all leads to better engagement, better care coordination & better health for members.

OUR TECHNOLOGY

It’s Scalable. It’s Seamless.
It’s a Game-Changer.

Our technology approach connects information from the state, health plans & physician offices, providing a seamless stream of data that leads to actionable insights & smarter health care decisions.

THE OUTCOME

A Winning Formula for Health Care Organizations Working in Medicaid-Centric Environments.

Advanced
Connectivity

We connect hospitals, physicians & health plans with data & technology to better serve Medicaid members.

Enhanced Access &
Capacity

We build & operate urgent, primary & complex care clinics to enhance inner-city, primary care access & capacity.

Increased
Engagement

We activate care in the community using both traditional & grassroots outreach efforts.

Lower
Costs

We capture value by driving care from the emergency room to in-network urgent & primary care.

Improved
Health

We close gaps in care & improve care coordination, resulting in healthier Medicaid populations.

ABOUT
AMPERSAND
HEALTH

We’re focused on building a new platform that brings it all together.

The ampersand. It’s simple. It’s powerful. It’s a workhorse. It’s a symbol we rely on each & every day. To connect ideas. To unite resources. To align challenges, solutions & people. That’s exactly what we’re doing at Ampersand Health. Our purpose is clear. We want to improve the health of vulnerable populations by being effective rather than merely disruptive.
