ACO-Humana venture touts better health metrics


On the Delaware River, by George Inness.

FierceHealthPayer reported that the Delaware Valley Accountable Care Organization, in Pennsylvania, and Humana, the health insurer, have improved health measures among Medicare Advantage members in the first year of their joint venture.

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.
