TeamHealth, the country’s leading physician practice, announced its expansion in the Dallas-Fort Worth market with the acquisition of Acute Care Transitions, LLP, (ACT) an emergency medicine and advanced care at-home telehealth provider.
“Drs. Muller, Hum and I are excited to have our business align with such an outstanding group,” said Ralph Baine, MD, co-owner of Acute Care Transitions. “Like us, they share a culture of innovation through virtual care, providing quality healthcare to patients and families, and have extensive experience providing care to patients in emergency departments. We are excited for this next chapter for our business.”
ACT’s telehealth programs serve patients within the Texas Health Resources health system by providing emergency medicine discharge follow-up care to Texas Health patients. Additionally, ACT provides physician coverage to support Texas Health’s cutting-edge advanced care at-home program in which patients initiate and complete their hospital stay at home utilizing a combination of remote monitoring through a telehealth platform and in-person care through advanced practice clinicians.
“TeamHealth is pleased to expand our virtual care offerings in Texas with Acute Care Transitions,” said Leif Murphy, TeamHealth’s CEO. “It demonstrates our continued focus on care transformation and innovation by advancing both post-emergency care follow up and virtual at-home care for TeamHealth’s patients and hospitals partners. Further, this acquisition will allow us to further align with Texas Health, and supports TeamHealth’s vision of partnering with leading health systems to advance the continuum of care while reducing costs.”
