Across the agilon platform, we manage large quantities of data, which includes information from members, physician partners, and healthcare entities. We recognize that the efficiency of our data centers is a key element of building a more sustainable company. As a result, we are in the process of migrating to a platform 3.6x more efficient than the median of enterprise data centers surveyed in the United States. These data centers have implemented several programs to lower their carbon footprint, and they use techniques such as evaporating cooling and recycled water to minimize waste. We take a commonsense approach to reducing waste, and this includes initiatives like encouraging recycling in our offices, including e-waste. As previously mentioned, much of our waste reduction comes in the form of partnering with physicians who already have a long-standing presence in their communities, thus updating existing infrastructure and using current office space to deliver patient services. This often means PCPs in smaller towns or rural areas can stay in business, while patients don’t have to drive long distances to larger cities in order to receive care. In some instances, care can be provided to vulnerable senior patients within their homes through special programs.At agilon health, we’re driven by our purpose of empowering physicians to transform health care in our communities. We recognize that our current health care system is fractured, and fixing it is a social imperative. In addition to our original Total Care, Healthier Communities impact strategy of targeting 100+ communities, we have added the goals of growing our network to 10,000 primary care physicians and reinvesting $10 billion+ to our partners and local primary care within the communities we serve. We build long-term partnerships with physician groups and health systems, enabling them to focus on the total health of their senior patients while earning and experiencing a more rewarding livelihood. We unlock value-based care through our Total Care Model, which aims to reimagine the patient experience and create a system based on the quality of care, not volume of fees. We’re transforming communities by scaling our model across the country, bringing better health care to patients that need it most. And it’s all built by people who care, which is why we foster a work environment where our people can grow, thrive, and contribute to our purpose.Doing business the right way is relevant to so many of our priorities: our compliance with federal and state laws, safeguarding patient data, how we treat our people and planet, and the values that define our company. As we continue to bring our Total Care Model to more communities, these priorities will remain central to how we run our company.Vital to enacting our first pillar, empowering physicians, is agilon’s investment in long-term physician partnerships in a way that offers a sustainable blueprint for PCPs. The current growth in the senior population has created a particularly significant business challenge for physicians: Medicare pays lower fee-for-service rates compared to commercial health plans. As the number of Medicare patients increases, this continues to negatively impact practice economics and the supply of primary care providers. Thus, physicians need a new business model for their Medicare patients—but often lack the expertise, technology, and capital to make the transition to value-based care. agilon is filling this crucial need, and acting as a trusted partner to physicians to enable this transition to full-risk value-based care, investing both financial and knowledge resources, and moving physician partners off the fee-for-service treadmill.agilon is a purpose-built, mission-driven company. We recognize that our efforts to provide greater access to high-quality health care require us to observe the highest standards of ethical conduct. This is because trust is central to everything we do, from establishing long-term partnerships with physician groups to earning support from community stakeholders to reassuring patients that their sensitive personal data is maintained privately and securely. We recognize that we have ongoing responsibilities to our physician partners and their patients, which is why we have robust quality management systems and other processes that compliantly support our long-term partnership model. We have established a culture of compliance at agilon to ensure that all members of our team are aware of, and committed to observing, the legal and regulatory requirements relevant to their roles. This is why we have an extensive Code of Conduct and set of corporate policies on adherence to federal and state laws, conflicts of interest, the retention of records, government contracts, relationships with healthcare providers, and an array of other issues. Because we strive to meet standards that go beyond what is legally necessary, our Code of Conduct also includes our mission and values, policies, and mechanisms for raising concerns about workplace behavior, and other internal rules and guidelines.
