OUR
MISSION

To proactively assist physicians, their staff, and their institution in providing the highest quality of healthcare to the community they serve by using secure technology, best practice protocols, and worldclass processes to reduce administrative burden.

OUR
VISION

Taking the burden off physician practices so they can get back to what is most important, their patients.

OUR STORY

Founded in 2004, Health Prime was born to relieve physicians from administrative burdens and allow them to focus on what matters the most: patients. After looking for a high-technology medical billing partner that could satisfy his medical practice’s needs and couldn’t find any, Dr. V.K. Shah decided to create his own solution that would help his practice, but also other multiple practices that faced his same challenges.  

Dr. Shah envisioned a variety of solutions that would help his and other practices to focus on patient care without having to worry about administrative tasks that distract doctors from their mission.

Health Prime serves as a strategic partner for value-based care organizations in today’s modern consumer health care marketplace.
