Generating Medical Home Savings and
Quality Improvements Through Outcome-Based Measures

Physician incentive payments that take into account both medical home capabilities and outcome measures have produced savings of over $155 million over three years for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michiganís patient-centered medical home (PCMH).

With 1,254 primary care practices participating in the program, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) has created its own PCMH designation that has become more rigorous as the program has evolved.

During Generating Medical Home Savings and Quality Improvements Through Outcome-Based Measures, an April 30th webinar at 1:30 p.m. Eastern, Donna Saxton, field team manager of BCBSM's value partnerships program, will share the details of its PCMH designation requirements and the system of rewards and incentives that has produced results for the plan, the PCMH practices and its members.
