Salt Lake City – Health Choice Utah Preferred Network and Humana Inc. have announced a new accountable care agreement in Salt Lake, Davis, Weber and Utah counties.
Humana’s Accountable Care Continuum is a pay-for-value system focused on promoting evidence-based, high-quality care, which can lead to improved medical member outcomes, a better customer experience and lower costs. Humana’s newest agreement is designed to serve the needs of Humana Medicare Advantage members based in the four Utah counties.
“We continue to focus on providing outstanding clinical care that is patient- and family-centered," said Mike Uchrin, CEO for Health Choice. “This is a natural collaboration, given Humana’s excellent programs, and we are pleased that Humana members can benefit from the quality of care provided by our physicians and clinics.”
“Most traditional health care systems revolve around sick care and paying for services rather than paying for healthier patient outcomes,” said Oraida Roman, president of senior products for Humana’s Intermountain Region. “Humana is transitioning to a value-based model that aligns incentives to health systems, like Health Choice, for improving the health and well-being of the member.”
The new Humana-Health Choice agreement includes value-based incentives tied to performance improvement. The arrangement will offer more personalized care and a broad range of population management tools including predictive analytics and chronic care, disease management and wellness programs.
