WPPA ProviDRs Care is happy to announce the hiring of Justin Leitzen as Director of Network Innovations. Leitzen worked at ProviDRs Care as Director of Contracting and Network Development from 2013 to 2015, when he left for a similar position at AmeriHealth Caritas, a Medicaid managed care organization in Des Moines, Iowa. Before coming to ProviDRs Care in 2013, he was Program Specialist for the Idaho Medical Home Collaborative in Boise, Idaho.
Justin will be responsible for developing innovative health care delivery models for the network and will initially focus on value-based care. Value-based care payment models work with physicians, hospitals and other providers to build a health care delivery system with better health, better care and better costs for everyone.
“WPPA ProviDRs Care has been very successful as Kansas’ largest independent PPO network but with Director Leitzen’s assistance, we will move toward value-based models,” said Dr. Joe Davison, vice president of the WPPA ProviDRs Care board. “It is exciting to engage the physicians in developing ways to further quality and concomitantly save money for our employers. We believe the collaboration between the doctors and the employers will result in exciting new products in the health care market.”
Justin can be reached at 316-683-0604 or 800-801-9772 by phone or e-mail at JustinLeitzen@ProviDRsCare.net.
