Iris Plans to further enhance Innovista’s value-based care and population health programs

AUSTIN, Texas, June 06, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Iris Plans and Innovista Health Solutions (Innovista) today announce a partnership to deliver Iris Plans’ telehealth Advance Care Planning (ACP) services to support Innovista’s physician partners, starting in Texas.

“Our new partnership with Innovista highlights our continued growth as a company, and most important, represents an excellent opportunity for innovation in patient-centered healthcare,” said Steve Wardle, CEO of Iris Plans. “Both companies share common goals of improving the patient experience in healthcare as well as overall health outcomes, while at the same time reducing overall costs and waste in the healthcare system. Our ACP services help Innovista deliver on these goals.”

Iris Plans’ mission is to help people with serious medical conditions live better and protect themselves and their family or caregivers from unnecessary stress. Using secure videoconference, Iris Plans connects people and their loved ones with an Iris Plans facilitator, who leads valuable ACP discussions when convenient, including nights and weekends.

“Advance Care Planning is an important but underutilized service today, and Iris Plans represents another technology-enabled solution we can use to support our physicians and their patients that drives value for the whole population,” stated Eric Weaver, President of Innovista’s Central Texas Market.


Iris Plans is a tech-enabled service that provides Advance Care Planning (ACP), or “healthcare planning,” to people with serious medical conditions. ACP’s proven benefits results in people receiving higher quality care, less stress on loved ones, higher satisfaction, and lower costs.
