A value-based contract between Advocate Physician Partners (APP) and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL) has reduced inpatient admissions and emergency room visits and has bent the cost curve after its first year. In this interview, Dr. Carrie Nelson, APP’s medical director for special projects, describes how APP’s eight-year clinical integration of 4,000 physicians and 10 hospitals has laid the groundwork for this value-based contract. Dr. Carrie Nelson presented during “Bending the Cost Curve with a Commercial Value-Based Payment Contract: A Case Study from Advocate Physician Partners,” a 45-minute webinar on July 18, 2012, now available for replay, during which she shared lessons learned from the first year of implementing the value-based contract between APP and BCBSIL.
