Preserving History Honoring Innovation

2018 Innovative Provider Organization - Providence Health & Services

Providence Health & Services is committed to providing for the needs of its communities—especially for those who are poor and vulnerable. In 2016, Providence Health & Services joined with St. Joseph Health to form Providence St. Joseph Health. Together, this diverse family of organizations employ more than 111,000 people who serve in 50 hospitals, 829 clinics and hundreds of programs and services in Alaska, California, Montana, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas and Washington.

Providence Health & Services:

* Brings more convenience and speed of healthcare access and lowering the cost of health care via products like Express Care, now deployed at 33 clinics in four states.

* Offers more frequent touchpoints between patients and their health care through apps like Circle, now being used by more than 4,000 expecting and new moms.

* Helps seniors get non-health-related services so they can be safer at home for longer, through a service now available in Washington and Oregon called Optimal Aging.

* Enabls doctors to issue digital prescriptions of apps, content and video through the Xealth platform.

In addition to these accomplishments, Providence Health founded Providence Ventures in 2014 to manage a $150 million venture capital fund on behalf of the organization. Providence Ventures targets health IT solutions that improve healthcare eCommerce, patient experience and engagement, on demand care and more.
