ACAP and the Future of Health Care

Episode #58



Since 2007, ACAP Health set out to change the way employers approach wellness. The outcomes-based strategy was born, and it has exceeded expectations as a proven way to reduce costs and improve health. Wally Gomaa, ACAP CEO, joins Scott and Anne Marie to talk about the long-term success of programs such as Naturally Slim and Compass, and hints at a groundbreaking new approach that ACAP is set to launch. It’s a simplified solution that addresses the basic equation: Price x Use = Cost.

ACAP, based in Dallas, means Accountable Care / Accountable Patients, and it takes a clinical approach to reverse clinical risk. ACAP and McGohan Brabender share a long history of collaboration, and every one of our clients has benefited, directly or indirectly, from that relationship. Learn more about ACAP’s impact, and see why ACAP is a national leader in wellness that works.
