The management company behind the internationally-renowned The CORE Institute has adopted a new name along with its expanded mission: HOPCo (Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company). And HOPCo is already achieving what few thought was possible: proving one can  provide better outcomes for orthopedic patients while lowering costs for patients, hospitals, and insurers.

“We are perhaps the only highly specialized, vertically integrated company with a proven track record in payor reform strategies including population health management”, says David J. Jacofsky, M.D., HOPCo’s Chairman and CEO. “From managing physician practices in new and unique ways, to partnering with hospitals and payors, HOPCo’s management services are delivering optimum patient care and increased profitability through value creation.  We will take on full population-based risk in the musculoskeletal space based on our platform’s performance.”

To achieve that, HOPCo has created unique, proprietary I.T. tools and decision support platforms that allow physicians and hospitals to easily drive evidence-based medicine, track and prevent complications in real time, and decrease the overall cost of care while aligning physicians, payor, and hospitals.

“We’re now able to produce validated predictive analytics,”, says Dr. Jacofsky, “assuring patients the best likelihood of a good outcome”.

The company’s preeminent role in Clinically Integrated Networks (CIN) is detailed on HOPCo’s new website,,  along with its demonstrated success at managing population health through its medical economics team, claims analytic tools, and programs centered around wellness and prevention.

HOPCo’s clients and partners include impressive names such as Banner Health, and The CORE Institute, the largest orthopedic practice in the southwest United States.

In an era of growing uncertainty in healthcare, it seems HOPCo may be just what the doctor ordered.
