Humana, Collaborative Health Partners launch value-based care program

Lynchburg, Va.-based Collaborative Health Partners and Humana have signed a value-based care agreement for 4,000 Humana Medicare Advantage members in the Lynchburg area.

The agreement is similar to an accountable care agreement in that it aims to offer a more coordinated, more personalized healthcare experience to focus on patient's overall, long-term health and well-being.

"We are excited to develop this relationship which further supports CHP's mission to support broad access to quality, affordable and personalized healthcare for our patients," Shawn Crawford, CEO of CHP, said in a statement. CHP is a clinically integrated physician network that includes 100 physicians from Central Virginia Family Physicians, Medical Associates of Central Virginia, Physician Treatment Center and Access HealthCare.

Under the agreement, these primary care physicians will be at the center of the healthcare system, leading patient care. Value-based incentives will be tied to performance improvement and quality outcomes, as defined by the National Committee for Quality Assurance Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set. Humana will provide population health tools, such as predictive analytics, chronic disease management and wellness programs.
