n1Health LLC is a Richmond, Virginia based firm that makes active investments in partnerships with physicians to modernize their practices and the way in which they bring value to their communities. The company believes that the American health care system is evolving in a way that serves neither the interests of providers nor the true payers for health care (patients and employers). n1Health enables patients to engage in relationships with their doctors without fully relying on health insurance to dictate the pace and scope of their care.
By assisting doctors in changing their business models, the company enables them to transform their care delivery model to focus on the underlying causes of disease.
