Integrative Health Management and Services
AGX is a Health Management Organization (HMO) specializing in Integrative Healthcare, supporting VHA’s Integrative Health Transformation Initiatives, the nation’s opioid crisis, chronic pain and suicide prevention. AGX is ideally and uniquely positioned to transform care, transform Veteran lives and lead the fundamental change that is needed. Traditionally trained doctors, healthcare staffing companies, nurses, medical social workers, case managers, and plan risk managers lack the training, and more importantly the philosophy to effectively deploy and oversee CIH services.
Among AGX’s core competencies are customer requirements analysis, strategic recruitment and the management of qualified healthcare service providers and support staff. As an experienced federal prime contractor, AGX Group has teamed with other partners in industry and academia to bring over 20 years of successful staffing of acupuncturists, massage therapists, chiropractors, integrative nurses, nutritionists and instructors in Tai Chi, Yoga, Mindfulness Meditation, and other Level 1 therapies. What sets AGX Group apart from other healthcare management and staffing is that it integrates and manages care to improve clinical outcomes, patient experience and return on investment.
