Independent Health’s success with helping physicians coordinate care means that our members get better care. We have long believed that partnering with providers to establish and implement value-based care and reimbursement models is the most effective way to achieve the Triple Aim of better health, better care and lower costs.
In 2012, Independent Health invited a select group of six forward-thinking cardiology groups to participate in a multi-year effort to decrease variation in cardiology services and move toward consistency in adhering to evidence-based medicine. This collaboration resulted in:
- A reduction of cardiology costs from double-digit increases to a 3.5 percent decrease over a two-year period.
- Less variation of care and closer adherence to evidence-based medicine
- Improved patient satisfaction
