Prisma Health launches inVio Health Network as its combined physician-led clinically integrated network

Thursday, October 7, 2021

Integration combines all physicians into one network

GREENVILLE, S.C.—Prisma Health has launched inVio Health Network as its combined physician-led clinically integrated network. The network combines the healthcare system’s previous two separate physician-led clinically integrated networks, Prisma Health Midlands Network and Prisma Health Upstate Network, under a new brand with centralized operations.

inVio Health Network (pronounced in-VEE-o) is an organization that negotiates value-based contracts with Medicare and other payors to improve the patient experience, improve quality, close gaps in healthcare and be rewarded for reducing and improving efficiency in healthcare spending.

This integrated network encompasses over 5,000 physicians and other healthcare providers and facilities who are currently part of the two clinically integrated networks affiliated with Prisma Health. Additionally, it will continue to include the Prisma Health facilities, Prisma Health employed medical groups, independent physician practices, facilities, and other healthcare providers within the communities we serve.

Bill Gerard, MD, senior vice president of network services and chief medical officer for health plans, said, “Since the creation of Prisma Health, our clinically integrated networks have operated as two separate but highly aligned organizations. Together as one, we will be able to drive cultural change and provide consistent care across our populations by integrating data, tracking and monitoring quality and developing evidence-based clinical guidelines and care models.”

Gerard added, “While our networks are combining into one and getting a new name, our dedication to helping provide the highest quality of care for our team members and the local communities remains the same.”

The merging and rebranding of the networks is already underway. As the two networks continue to merge into one, the community will start to see the new name used on insurance provider lists in place of Prisma Health Midlands Network and Prisma Health Upstate Network, as well as on network and insurance provider websites and various insurance provider communications. The transition is expected to be complete by spring 2022.

Prisma Health physician practices and facilities are not being rebranded or restructured. This change only applies to our two clinically integrated networks, Prisma Health Midlands Network and Prisma Health Upstate Network.

The inVio Health Network includes:
  • 20 hospitals
  • 807 practice locations
  • 5,116 providers
    • 3,228 employed / 1,888 independent
    • 984 primary care / 4,132 specialists
