Collaborative Health Partners, Humana team up in central Virginia

Collaborative Health Partners of Virginia, a clinically integrated physician network based in Lynchburg, Va., and Louisville, Ky.-based insurer Humana have joined forces on a value-based care agreement to offer 4,000 Medicare Advantage members more coordinated and personalized healthcare.

CHP has the largest primary care network in central Virginia. It consists of Central Virginia Family Physicians, Medical Associates of Central Virginia, Physician Treatment Center and AccessHealthcare, with a total of 100 physicians.

Through the new agreement, Humana will complement CHP's integrated healthcare network and patient centered medical home initiatives with its population health capabilities, including predictive analytics, chronic disease management and wellness programs. Neil Steffens, president of Humana's Medicare products, says the goal of the agreement it to place primary care physicians at the center of the healthcare system.

"The primary care physician is the key to creating a more effective health care system," said Mr. Steffens. "Value-based care creates a framework that allows primary care physicians to spend more time with patients, arms them with the tools they need to truly manage their patients’ health, and aligns the health care system to be more responsive to the people it serves."
