Quality Driven by Compassion
Conviva Physicians experience clinical autonomy supported by data and analytics.
We are reinventing excellence in healthcare with a simple idea... that meaningful patient relationships lead to better health outcomes. Our shared responsibility is for our patients to reach their fullest potential while always feeling respected, understood, and cared about.
Every clinician has the opportunity to not only work at their highest levels, but also show compassion by taking time to provide personalized encouragement and care. This balance is our unique way of ensuring each patient lives a healthier, happier life.
The patient is at the center of everything we do. Clinicians lead the evaluation of outcomes and are constantly looking for ways to improve utilization and clinical best practices. No decision or incentive is made at the expense of the integrity of the practice of medicine.
