For patients, this means less burden from frequent clinic visits, more convenient medical testing, and seamless medication access with Story Health.
“As healthcare continues to evolve beyond fee-for-service care, Primary Care Providers (PCPs) require specialists that have aligned incentives to enable a smoother transition to value-based care. At Story Health, we provide a new type of cardiology practice that places preventative medicine at the forefront with clinical pathways built specifically for cardiological conditions that deliver proven outcomes. We are excited about working with Pearl Health and their provider community,” said Dr. Ashul Govil, Chief Medical Officer at Story Health.
