Rise Health will take an active role by working with the New Mexico Primary Care Group clinical team by providing them with tools, resources, time, data, clinical expertise, and deep operational know-how to deliver the best patient care in a global risk environment.

Serving as the payvider with NMPC, it’s our goal to support all of our clinicians with the necessary tools including technology, relevant service providers, admin, and payor contracting, needed to operate in a value based care environment, especially given the rural nature of the practice” Bollimpalli shared. “This will allow our clinicians to focus on the most important part of patient care, the patient.

Rise Health and New Mexico Primary Care Group are working together on innovative care paths and a new approach to healthcare; focusing on providing their patients with the goal to live the greatest number of healthy days possible. The way to make that goal a reality is to offer the people of Las Cruces a higher quality medical care.
