Our Mission

Our Mission

To transform the delivery of oncology and cardiovascular care by aligning the distinctive capabilities of healthcare payers and specialty providers with:

  • Smart technology
  • Clinical data analytics
  • Deep clinical expertise

The ultimate goal of this transformation is to improve

  • Quality of Care
  • Affordability of Care
  • Patient Experience

Achieving this transformation requires NEW thinking, NEW tools, NEW partnerships and NEW Century Health

What Problems We Solve

  • Unnecessary Variations in Care Plans

    A significant amount of oncology and cardiology care is not evidence-based

  • Escalating Costs Not Related to Value

    The costs for oncology and cardiovascular specialty care are growing rapidly despite the unclear impact on clinical outcomes and benefits for patients

  • Fragmented Care Delivery

    Far too often, patients are receiving high cost emergency room and hospital inpatient care when they could be better managed in other, less intensive care settings

  • Insufficient Information

    Providers: Unfortunately, most specialty providers don’t have the information regarding quality, clinical standards and financial costs

    Patients: Although the quality of life and palliation should be a priority for patients with terminal and incurable disease, many are not provided the information to guide them and their family with informed choices during this critical time

  • Misaligned Financial Incentives

    In the current specialty care delivery landscape, providers are most often reimbursed on a fee-for-service basis instead of under fee-for-value arrangements

Our Approach and Philosophy

We believe in taking a total disease state management approach instead of focusing on a single treatment or diagnostic procedure.

This NEW thinking along with NEW tools, improves clinical efficiency and effectiveness through the full episode of patient care, including diagnostic, treatment and rehabilitation.


  • Clinical data analytics and predictive modeling
  • Care management technology and clinical decision support tools to ensure adherence to clinical standards
  • Population health based approaches for specialty care coordination
  • Value-based reimbursement approaches
  • Outcomes reporting and quality benchmarking

NEW Thinking

  • Integrating the distinctive skills, data and capabilities of Payers and Providers to implement NEW comprehensive and sustainable solutions
  • Applying NEW tools of population management to individual treatment planning
  • Leveraging NEW technology and analytical tools to make care more efficient
  • Using NEW reimbursement models to pay for value instead of activity

NEW Tools

Our Integrated Single Specialty Provider (ISSP) approach breaks through the limitations of the old utilization management methods and results in comprehensive care management care across the entire specialty care continuum.

Coordinated precision medicine patient care through ISSP is

Delivered by multiple physician sub-specialties

Provided in a range of care sites
