About Us

Transformant: “A cell that has taken up additional DNA, usually a plasmid, that confers some antibiotic resistance, so that the successful transformants will grow, while all of the cells that weren’t transformed will not….”

Transformant Healthcare Solutions (THS) is a value-added service company created to help independent physician practices remain independent.

Through a combination of data collection and analysis, consulting and management services, THS focuses on assisting practices in their preparation for value-based contracting in addition to merger assistance and traditional management services. In service of its largest client, OrthoCarolina, THS has created and implemented the infrastructure to negotiate and manage commercial bundled payment contracts. As of Q3 2015, THS had enacted six commercial bundled payment agreements and two site-of-service agreements generating improved patient clinical outcomes and satisfaction while substantially lowering the cost of care to their patients.

Transformant Healthcare Solutions can assist provider groups in generating and managing their own commercial bundled payment and other value-based contracts while facilitating enhanced data-sharing among our members on these endeavors with the potential for shared ownership.

In the emerging healthcare environment, a new approach to the management of a physician practice is key - not only to thrive, but to survive. To be successful, practices will not only need to optimize performance of their operations and business functions, but also must collect, report, and govern clinical outcomes to drive consistent, accountable, value-driven care.

THS offers a combination of value-added management services for care coordination, quality outcome collection and reporting, physician governance and value based contracting in addition to traditional physician practice management of business office functions, IT, marketing, legal, organizational development, strategic planning, data analytics, merger assistance and compliance.

Patients in THS’s practices are able to compare the quality of their doctor to the competition, receive care at a lower cost with consistently high quality in a positive experience. THS groups are known for their superior clinical and business performance – the best independent franchise in each area. Groups constitute a national orthopedic network for contracting on value-based care with employers, insurers, physician groups, and hospitals.
