OneCare Vermont: Reducing Health Care Spending and Improving Health Outcomes

In this short video, learn what these two terms mean, why OneCare Vermont—our state’s local accountable care organization —has been tasked with the herculean task of transforming the way we pay for and deliver care, and the three core business areas that work in tandem toward the mission to improve health outcomes and reduce health care spending.

OneCare Core Capability: Network Performance Management

OneCare Vermont: Network Performance Management

Get an overview of OneCare Vermont’s Network Performance Management core capability which first sets up contracts with insurance payers on behalf of its wide network of participating providers. After providers have their contracts with insurance payers in place, OneCare works next to help them succeed by supporting primary prevention efforts, facilitating care coordination and collaboration in order to deliver the best possible health care to patients, and monitoring quality measures to achieve better health outcomes.

OneCare Core Capability: Payment Reform

OneCare Vermont: Payment Reform

Get an overview of OneCare’s innovative payment reform model that stabilizes health care costs and allows providers to invest more in preventive care and care coordination for patients with chronic illness. Hear directly from the CEO of Gifford Medical Center, Dan Bennett, and CMO of Gifford, Dr. Josh White, about how fixed monthly payments from OneCare to care for their patients helps Gifford shift toward a value-based care model—delivering the best care, not the most care.

OneCare’s Comprehensive Payment Reform Program

Studies have shown that accountable care organizations (ACOs) that invest more in primary care, by way of advanced primary care delivery models, have higher savings rates. One strategy for investing in primary care is through OneCare’s Comprehensive Payment Reform (CPR) program which offers independent primary care practices fixed, predictable monthly payments, regardless of visit volume. Primary care practices earn payments that shift focus away from billable services and to care that’s right for patients.
