The value-based program is designed to improve patient health, reduce unnecessary cost and promote accountable care at home with quality and cost-efficiency incentives
BAYADA Home Health Care and AmeriHealth Caritas today announced they have entered into a value-based agreement to improve patient health, reduce unnecessary cost and promote accountable care at home.
Developed as part of AmeriHealth Caritas’s PerformPlus® suite of value-based contracting programs, the agreement is built on a core set of balanced measures to align incentives among providers, like BAYADA, and payers, like AmeriHealth Caritas, in a shared goal of increasing positive patient outcomes and economic stewardship.
