About Skylight Health Group
Skylight Health Group (NASDAQ:SLHG; TSXV:SLHG) is a healthcare services and technology company working to positively impact patient health outcomes. Skylight Health Group operates a US multi-state primary care health network comprised of physical practices which provide a range of services including primary care, sub-specialty, allied health, and laboratory/diagnostic testing. Skylight Health Group is focused on helping small and independent practices shift from a traditional fee-for-service (FFS) model to value-based care (VBC) through tools which include proprietary technology, data analytics, and infrastructure. In an FFS model, payors (commercial and government insurers) reimburse on an encounter-based approach. This puts a focus on the volume of patients per day. In a VBC model, the providers offer care that is aimed at keeping patients healthy and minimizing unnecessary health expenditures that are not proven to maintain the patient’s well-being. This places an emphasis on quality over volume. VBC leads to improved patient outcomes, reduced costs of delivery, and drives stronger financial performance from existing practices.
