Chicago, IL, April 12, 2023 — Professional Health Care Network (“PHCN” or the “Company”) unveiled its new brand strategy via a new name – tango.

PHCN, now tango, is a Vistria Fund IV, LP investment which was completed in March 2022.

Before joining tango, Mr. Lobley was the EVP, Chief Operating Officer & President of Health Markets for Independence Blue Cross in Philadelphia, PA.
Over the past year under Vistria’s ownership, tango has continued to accelerate growth by entering several new geographies and strategic relationships and enhancing its care enablement capabilities and capacity through significant investments in product innovation and delivery. Going forward, tango’s differentiated approach to enabling payor and provider care at home strategies uniquely positions the brand as a trusted partner to accelerate and amplify the access and value of in-home care delivery nationwide.
“The innovative platform of tango helps ensure the delivery of timely, high-quality, compassionate in-home care that every patient deserves. Our investment in PHCN, now tango, furthers our commitment to enhancing the access and value of in-home care as well as leading stakeholders committed to that goal,” said David Schuppan, Senior Partner and Co-Head of Healthcare at The Vistria Group.

The solutions we provide enable an accelerated shift to in-home care delivery via a value-based care model that closely aligns payors and providers within a structured, highly collaborative relationship focused on the same set of objectives. We needed a bold name with personality and one that would illustrate our unique dedication to enabling these collaborative, trusted partnerships at a national scale. What word better conveys that commitment than the name of the iconic partner dance, tango?”
