SimplyWise Provider Networks

SimplyWise is a subset of the Wise broad panel PPO network and will highlight top performing providers in their specialties. It includes select primary care and specialty physicians and will continue to include all of the hospitals available in your current broad panel PPO.

There are significant differences in complication rates, mortality rates, patient safety events, efficiency and cost in medical providers. It is the norm, not the exception, to see complication rates that are 30% higher in a hospital that is less than five miles away from another hospital. Actual quality information is generally not shared with members to help them make informed decisions. In the existing system members rely on advertising, reputation of friends’ recommendations when selecting a provider or hospital.

Using rigorous analysis of Utah medical data, Imagine Health is able to identify high-quality and high-efficiency providers and hospitals and share the information with members via this provider directory.

The following are our hospital partner accomplishments.
