Apree Health Logo

apree health brings together a best-in-class engagement platform with an advanced primary care model to provide a vastly better health and care experience, improve outcomes, and significantly lower the total cost of care for a population.

Patient Service Representative


apree health is leading the critical shift to value-based care across the United States. Vera is the only care model with the capability to deliver whole system health to a diverse patient population from a single care center. The Vera model is uniquely designed to help people achieve optimum social, psychological, and physical well-being – an outcome that’s neither probable nor affordable within the current sick-care system. The Vera model is anchored by three core elements: high engagement, managed care, and organizational culture change, which combine to drive down utilization of costly services like ER, inpatient/outpatient visits, and transform the overall health of the organization. Join the health revolution.
