Dr. Agnihotri focuses on transforming our clinical delivery network to adapt and thrive under new payment models such as global risk, capitated or accountable care models.
A few of Dr. Agnihotri priorities include assessing our managed care infrastructure, bringing on population health analytics for our MSSP ACO and global risk contracts, and educating and training the faculty regarding how to adapt clinical practices under a global capitation environment and partner with us on our payer strategies. He also coordinates activities across UC Health as the five UC Health campuses work together to build scalable population health tools.
Dr. Agnihotri is a faculty member in the division of geriatrics, and his clinical work focuses on clinical care oversight of our skilled nursing facility partners and outpatient care in the geriatrics clinic.
Prior to joining UC San Diego Health, Dr. Agnihotri served as the Medical Director of Population Health and Post-Acute Care for Sharp Rees-Stealy as well as the Chief Medical Officer for the Sharp Healthcare ACO. As a practicing geriatrician, he has published several articles on the management and outcomes of high-risk populations and is recognized as a national leader in the development of high-performing health systems, technology use, and population health management. Under his leadership, Sharp Rees-Stealy was been recognized as a “Top Performer” on HEDIS quality measures, designated “Elite Status” by the California Association of Physician Groups (CAPG), received high performance on the CAHPS survey, and was designated as a high performer from IHA on the Medicare Stars Program.
Before his time at Sharp, Dr. Agnihotri was the Medical Director of Care Management at Dignity Health’s Mercy Medical Group in Sacramento, where he achieved many of the same outcomes and dramatically improved the group’s HCC scores for the Medicare Risk Adjustment Factor (RAF).
Dr. Agnihotri completed his residency at the University of Illinois in Chicago and served as chief resident for the Department of Medicine before becoming the Division Director of Geriatrics at Michael Reese Hospital.
