The ACO and Humana said that members increased by 10 percent their medication adherence and grew their participation in a disease-management program by 4 percent.
The partnership added 22 more physician practices, “making the healthcare model available to 8,200 Humana Medicare Advantage members in southeast Pennsylvania,” Fierce reported.
“These early indicators show that value-based care is doing what it’s supposed to: shift our healthcare system toward a more proactive, coordinated approach,” said Eric Bohannon, vice president of Humana Medicare Products in Pennsylvania.
“The Delaware Valley ACO partnership is in line with Humana’s plans to move away from a health-benefits mindset to one more focused on the consumer,” Fierce said.
