It all started with an email. After reading an article about the Affordable Care Act, cofounder Steve Zuckerman was intrigued by the Medicare Annual Wellness Visit (AWV) as a way to improve care for patients and financial performance for providers. He emailed his brother, Averel Snyder, MD, to validate his theory that software could enhance the AWV and the utilization of other preventive services. Averel agreed that it was worth exploring, and Vatica Health was born.
The pivot to risk adjustment
In 2013, Averel Snyder, MD, identified an opportunity to expand Vatica Health’s solution to create a new provider-centric model for risk adjustment. In early 2014, we were fortunate to find Hassan Rifaat, MD, an experienced health plan executive, who has led Vatica Health from a start-up into the market leader for in-office risk adjustment and quality of care for all lines of business.
We are passionate about driving results for our clients
“We are relentless in our pursuit of helping our clients achieve superior clinical and financial performance. Helping clients win has been our mission from the start; it’s in our DNA.”
