Introduction Brief Description of Products Offered Advantages of AHP
Atlantis Health Systems, Inc., a New York corporation (the "Company"), was incorporated on April 17, 1995 as a holding company to be controlled by health care professionals residing in New York State and practicing in New York City. The Company was organized by 12 New York physicians ("founding Physicians"). The Company's central goal is to advance the cost-effective delivery of high quality health care in New York City by harnessing the skill, experience and knowledge of health care professionals at every step of the health care management and delivery process, and to recreate the health care partnership that once existed between the patient and the professional.
In order to achieve its goal of reinstating control over the delivery of high-quality, cost-effective health care, the Company established a health care delivery system in New York City involving an IPA model Health Maintenance Organization (an "HMO") to be called Atlantis Health Plan Inc. ("AHP").
Atlantis Health Plan has contracts with community-based multi-specialty networks of health care Facilities and Professionals who are familiar with their patient populations and who are also familiar with one another. The object is that conscientious physician management of health care services, provided within the context of community-based provider networks, will result in the delivery of high-quality, more cost-efficient care to the people of New York City.
