SCA has evolved to support physician specialists more holistically in many aspects of patient care. We’re transforming care in our communities through partnerships that support clinical independence and align quality, connectivity, and value.

  • We connect patients to physicians in new and differentiated ways as part of Optum Care and with our new Surgical Management Solutions business.
  • We have pioneered a physician-led, MSO-model of practice management that restores physician agency by aligning incentives to support growth and transition to value.
  • We lead the industry in value-based solutions, and in early 2021, welcomed Global 1, a leading bundled payment convener to the SCA family.
  • We help physicians address everything beyond surgical procedures, including anesthesia and ancillary service lines.
