DeKalb Physician Hospital Organization, Humana launch value-based care agreement

Atlanta-based DeKalb Physician Hospital Organization and insurance provider Humana have expanded their relationship by adding value-based care provisions to their agreement serving Humana commercial members with the goal of enhancing the coordination of care services, improving quality and reducing healthcare costs.

DPHO is affiliated with DeKalb Medical, a nonprofit health system based in Decatur, Ga.

Under the new value-based care arrangement, which came into effect Jan. 1, Humana commercial and Humana Individual National Point of Service members will continue to have in-network benefit access to physicians affiliated with DeKalb Medical facilities.

"The value-based agreement allows us to focus on measurable patient outcomes, care coordination, disease management and aligning quality with payment incentives," said Albert Wildstein, MD, chairman of DPHO. "We believe this expanded agreement with Humana will greatly benefit our patients."

The agreement includes value-based incentives to support performance improvement, successful population health management and enhanced patient experience for Humana members and DPHO/DeKalb Medical patients in Atlanta. It emphasizes quality outcomes and leverages standard measures defined by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set.
