Value-Based Healthcare

“A healthcare delivery paradigm that uses realigned incentives to reward care providers for helping patients improve their well-being and support community efforts to better the health of their population.”

-Jenni Gudapati & Thom Walsh

“As we continue to pursue expansion of this and related value-based care initiatives, it’s become clear to us that more needs to be done to build awareness among health care payers, providers and regulators about how value-based systems can work and succeed. Now that other insurers serving Idaho have embraced value-based contracting models and the federal government is driving the same model in its programs, it’s clear that specialized training is essential.”

 – Sean Robbins President Regence BlueShield of Idaho

Answering the Call

“One of our challenges in implementing value-based payment programs is finding experienced, knowledgeable and educated professionals. Businesses often have to direct recruiting efforts outside of Idaho to find qualified candidates. Boise State’s new program will help find hidden talent right here in Idaho, as well as offering additional education to some of our existing Blue Cross of Idaho employees.”

-Todd York, Vice President, Provider Partnership Blue Cross of Idaho
