Meet Doug Sparks: CEO of Precision Value Based Management (Includes interview)

Precision Value Based Management owns the technology that grades and ranks physicians for payers, hospital systems, and ACOs, with over 21 million patients that are being tracked.

“They know exactly what is expected of each physician’s practice. For example, even if one did Annual Wellness Visits/AWV and Health Risk Assessments/HRA for every patient, one will still be penalized for failing to act on medical necessities found within those results,” Sparks said.

Sparks noted that physicians are completely unaware that this is even happening. “Only our platform can identify these deficiencies, engage your patients, and drive this missed revenue for you,” he said.

He did a video interview with Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos, which may be seen by clicking here.

Sparks holds eight years of experience on Wall Street. In 1987, he decided to venture into the field of healthcare. In the following year, he went on to serve two years as a chairman of a publicly-traded physical therapy company. He took them through an acquisition and he subsequently built his own private PT chain from scratch. Since 2002, he has built compliant revenue models for physicians, groups, hospitals, ACOs, and IPAs.

Two years ago, in 2018, Sparks’ former company DPT Healthcare Partners, won the Top 10 Innovation & Technology Companies In Healthcare award at the SmartHealth Conference.

On June 20, 2019, Sparks was recognized among the Top 100 Leaders in Healthcare globally at the International Forum on Advancements in Healthcare Conference, thanks to his value-based program. Sparks has created several first to market models that have become industry standard.
