As an independent physician association based in Olympia, WA, Physicians of Southwest Washington (PSW) is the leading healthcare resource in the South Puget Sound region for physicians and practices.
Formed in 1995 by primary care and specialist physicians with a goal to shape the future of regional healthcare by providing continuity of health plan access and maximizing quality of patient care. Today, PSW has evolved as a diversified organization with twenty-three years of proven success in managing full risk health plan contracts, implementing Accountable Care models and delivering management services.
As a contracted partner with Medicare Advantage health plans, PSW provides key services to more than 500 healthcare providers and the approximate 5,000 patients they serve. These services include claims processing, provider credentialing and contracting and care management.
In 2016, PSW launched NW Momentum Health Partners ACO, LLC, to participate in the CMS Next Generation ACO model of care. NW Momentum Health ACO manages 9,000 Medicare beneficiary lives through active care coordination and services with the goal of improving quality, reducing expenditures and enhancing the patient and provider experience.
PSW is actively engaged with its network of healthcare providers and contracted Medicare Advantage plans. Our collective goal is to improve the delivery of patient care, improve the health of populations served and to appropriately manage costs.
PSW is proud of its participation and support of many organizations in our local communities, including:
- Healthy Communities Foundation
- Senior Action Network
- Health Care Champions
