Advances goal of bringing clinical intelligence to the point of care, helping payers and providers improve care quality, reduce costs, and speed care delivery
It’s not often that you get to look inside and see how a major payer and their provider network are innovating on the path to value-based care. But Healthcare IT News Editor-in-Chief Tom Sullivan did just that with a rare look into what’s happening at Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey (BCBSNJ).
Sullivan took a deep dive, speaking at length with Lili Brillstein, BCBSNJ’s Director of Episodes of Care. Brillstein shared how they’re successfully embracing bundled payment efforts, which she prefers to call, fittingly enough, “episodes of care.”
Noting that HealthQX value-based payment software from Change Healthcare is a key part of the effort, the report shows how others can benefit by BCBSNJ’s experience, which is advancing a patient-centered approach that’s proving to be a competitive advantage.
