SignalHealth is a clinically integrated health care network led by physicians, and wholly owned and operated by the Virginia Mason Memorial system as an independent 501C-3 organization. It was formed out of local response to the nation's health care reimbursement shift; a movement away from the traditional fee-for-service based model to a quality based payment model.
SignalHealth is positioned to help prepare Yakima for approaching changes in health care delivery and reimbursement, by enhancing health care provider recruitment, guiding health care providers through the health care reform process, and ensuring that health care organizations and providers are able to thrive and grow in this changing environment.
SignalHealth's foundation is built on providing quality, population based health care that residents of the Yakima Valley need and deserve, and that will improve the global health of the Yakima community. SignalHealth's model moves beyond treating illness and focuses on the patient experience and the promotion of health and wellness.
