Atrius Health, a Newton, Mass.-based nonprofit multispecialty medical group, is the latest organization to open its own innovation center.

The nonprofit will invest $10 million in a place that will aim to develop and improve patient-centered care delivery models. Atrius, which is part of a Pioneer Accountable Care Organization (ACO), joins other health systems and hospitals, including New York Presbyterian, Hospital for Special Surgery, and Cleveland Clinic that have created specialized innovation arms of their organization. While those have focused specifically on technology innovations, this one will be more about risk-based sharing models.

“As the industry continues to move towards increased risk sharing, accountability and transparency around performance, increased patient engagement, and demands for big gains in efficiency, it is requiring us to rethink how we deliver care,” stated Daniel Burnes, M.D. Transition CEO of Atrius Health. 

Atrius says not only will the Innovation Center be an independent business unit within Atrius Health, but will be overseen by an advisory board consisting of membership from the Atrius health board and the organization’s senior leadership.
