BCBS of Western New York and Kaleida Partner to Form Integrated Care Model

BlueCross BlueShield of Western New York and Kaleida Health of Buffalo, N.Y., announced plans to partner and form an integrated care model, the first of its kind in the Buffalo region.

The model includes a network of Western New York physicians partnering with health system Kaleida and health insurer BCBS to create a physician-led organization. It's a first of its kind healthcare delivery model for the Buffalo region in that it combines a health plan, health system and group of physicians providing patient-centered care.

It's essentially a commercial accountable care organization. Kaleida Health refers to it as a "strategic partnership" intended to "assure accountability for both the clinical outcomes of the patients and the costs of the care delivery model."
