HOPCo Partners with Northern Arizona Orthopaedics


Phoenix, Arizona (June 14, 2018) – Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company (HOPCo), the management firm behind the nationally renowned The CORE Institute, today signed a partnership agreement with another stellar name in the field, Northern Arizona Orthopaedics (NAO).

“HOPCo and NAO share a history of commitment to quality clinical outcomes,” said David J. Jacofsky, MD, HOPCo’s Chairman and CEO. “Through this partnership, we will build a unique, clinically integrated experience for the benefit of our patients, our health system partners, and the community at large throughout central and northern Arizona.”

NAO’s Chairman of the Board of Directors and Company President Tim Bonatus, DO called the partnership a new era of collaboration. “We have been impressed with HOPCo’s interest in, and capacity for, clinical innovation and proactive preparation for payor reform, and HOPCo has been impressed with NAO’s brand and corporate culture, the quality of care provided, and the history of leadership in our community.”

All of that is powered by HOPCo’s state-of-the-art healthcare information technology tools, providing real-time data to physicians, assuring the best likelihood of a good outcome for patients, and lowering costs for providers, hospitals, health insurers, and the patients themselves.
