Concerto Health is an Irvine, CA-based company with one vision: to redesign primary health care delivery for millions of people with complex health needs. The Concerto name reflects our unique approach to healthcare. It’s about how we work in concert with all aspects of the health care delivery system.
The Concerto Health care model changes everything – payment, staffing, processes, IT systems, and culture. Our model surrounds patients, families, and their caregivers with a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals and systems. Our innovative team-based approach to care delivers unparalleled results in the areas of patient/staff experience, transitions of care, quality, and cost, fostering a culture that humanizes health care delivery for those most in need.
We currently operate in 2 markets (Michigan and Washington State) that include 7 primary care practices, and do so in partnership with innovative health plans that share our vision. We will be operating soon in additional geographies.
