Chief Medical Officer, Wayne Pan, stated, "ARW has been doing tremendous work to improve quality of care in Hawaii and we’re looking forward to doing the same in the state of California. It’s an honor to have Hill Physicians as our first California customer, and we look forward to serving them. This partnership is a great validation that there is demand for real-time quality payment engines that create trust and transparency for all parties who are working together to provide the best patient health outcomes.”
“ARW and Hill Physicians have a lot of similar values. We both strive for high quality care to be accessible for doctors and at the same time to level the playing field in quality of care so that patients have choice and consistency of care. These doctors are practicing in our community, treating our friends and family. We have a vested interest in their success,” said Nikki Asao of ARW’s Business Development Department who has worked closely with PriMed and Hill Physicians to understand their goals and needs.
“Hill Physicians has always focused on supporting their private practice physicians in providing the best possible health care for their patients,” said Elisabeth Renner, M.D., Chair of the Provider IT Committee and Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors for Hill Physicians. “Cozeva with its flexibility, functionality, and comprehensiveness will allow us to raise the bar in the broad spectrum of high quality patient care.”
