Humana collaborates with 11 orthopedic groups in North Carolina, Virginia

Louisville, Ky.-based Humana established an orthopedic value-based care model with 11 specialty groups in North Carolina and Virginia.

The Humana Total Joint Replacement Episode-Based Model will include North Carolina Medicare Advantage patients receiving care at Raleigh-based EmergeOrtho — including its four associated clinics — and Gastonia-based Carolina Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine Center, Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic, Charlotte-based OrthoCarolina and Winston-Salem-based Wake Forest University Health Sciences. Medicare Advantages patients in Virginia who receive care at Kingsport, Tenn.-based Appalachian Orthopaedic Associates, Newport News-based Hampton Roads Orthopedic Center or Virginia Beach-based Jordan-Young Institute will also be included in the model.  

These practices will join 12 orthopedics groups in Ohio and Tennessee and eight groups in Indiana and Kentucky also participating in the model.

Humana will also provide the practices with data and analytic insights to improve patient care management and lower readmissions.
