Transition your practice

Looking to create strong, scalable growth? We can help you:

  • Create opportunities to grow your patient base
  • Join a community of like-minded medical professionals sharing best practices 
  • Shape the future of care with a proven, physician-led model

Why transition your business with Optum?

Medical practices face growing competition from new provider models, including urgent care clinics, direct-to-employer and direct primary care, among others. We can help you maintain independence.

We support a variety of partnerships

We acquire physician groups and add to their capabilities to care for their patient populations. When you become part of our organization, you have access to a wealth of resources while retaining the freedom to focus on your patients' health.

We offer a choice of practice models and a proven track record of success. You can rely on our dedicated support and the guidance of our expert merger team, which works on many types of transactions, from independent practice association (IPA) acquisitions to combining medical networks.

Patients value our providers

Our patients are loyal. They trust us to care for their families because we spend meaningful time with them. We do everything possible to help our patients feel confident, cared for and in control every step of the way.

Nine out of 10 patients would tell their friends to see their Optum doctor.*   

Practice model resources

We serve our patients — and our physicians — through a variety of practice models. Learn more about which model will work best for you.

We acquire physician groups and add to their capabilities to care for their patient populations.

We acquire IPAs that already have a contracted provider network.

We set up physician-led networks of high-performing physicians in an IPA model to give them value-added resources to better serve their patients.

We expand existing groups and IPAs to adjacent markets through enhanced payer relationships as well as new contracted and employed physicians.

We acquire large physician groups and then create physician-led networks in an IPA model.

We expand existing group practices by acquiring additional physician practices, which are then brought into Optum.
