The Highmark True Performance Program: Value Based Care at Highmark
 
The Highmark True Performance Program: Value Based Care at Highmark
Highmark launched its True Performance program in January of 2017, with the goal to improve health care quality outcomes for members, reduce annual increases in total health care costs and help physicians engage in patient care coordination and population health management. Highmark's True Performance is a value-based reimbursement program for Primary Care Physicians (PCPs) focused on affordability and quality of health for Highmark members. The program evaluates PCPs' ability to deliver the right care at the right time and in the most appropriate setting, and rewards PCPs for their performance on quality and cost/utilization measures.

Based on Highmark's claims data through the end of 2017, Highmark members who are seeing a PCP in the True Performance program had 11 percent fewer Emergency Room visits in 2017 than members seeing a PCP not in the program, and Highmark estimates that potentially avoided costs were over $38 million in just the first year of the True Performance program. Additionally, members seeing a PCP in the True Performance program had 16 percent fewer inpatient admissions in 2017 compared to members seeing a PCP not in the program – at a potentially avoid cost savings of $224 million.

Please join us on Wednesday, October 3, 2018, at 1 PM Eastern as Highmark’s Mari Vandenburgh shares Highmark's approach to value-based care and the results and components of their True Performance program. Click here for detailed information and to register or call 209.577.4888.
