SAN FRANCISCO  – ReferralMD is proud to announce a partnership with Bronx Partners for Healthy Communities to help them achieve their goal of reducing unnecessary re-hospitalizations by 20% and move toward value-based payments.  


About Bronx Partners for Healthy Communities

Bronx Partners for Healthy Communities is a coalition of over 200 Bronx-based organizations in New York working together to increase patient access, care quality, and efficiency in healthcare delivery. Through ten DSRIP projects, designed to meet our community’s unique health needs, BPHC is building a coordinated, community-based healthcare system focused on the wellness of every Bronx resident.

Our mission is to improve the health and wellness of the Bronx community and implement innovative community-level projects which transform the system of clinical delivery. We envision a healthcare system in the Bronx that relies less on hospital care, focuses on prevention and improves health outcomes while at a lower cost to the system. To do this, BPHC will integrate community-based services into medical care, provide coordinated care to every Bronx patient, and adopt a value-based contracting model that allows our coalition to keep the Bronx healthy for years to come.
