Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization Sign Alternative Quality Contract
Date:5/25/2010

” said Andrew Dreyfus, Executive Vice President of Health Care Services for BCBSMA. “By signing the AQC, NEPHO is part of a community solution to lower costs and improve care.”

The AQC, a global payment model coupled with quality based incentives, is a significant change from traditional fee-for-service contracts and gives physicians the flexibility to allocate health care resources based on what will have the greatest benefits to patient health. It is designed to improve quality of care and patient experience, while significantly reducing annual medical cost trends.

“We are pleased to be partnering with BCBSMA to participate in an alternative to traditional fee-for–service, high cost health care, which provides both lower costs and higher quality of care to consumers and businesses in our market place” said Jeanne Holland, Executive Director of the Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization, Inc. “We look forward to being part of a select group of providers who put the needs of our patients and local community interests first.”

Since January 2009, nine hospitals and physician groups have committed to improving the quality and affordability of care by signing Alternative Quality Contracts. They include: Northeast Health Systems Physician Hospital Organization, Inc., Mount Auburn Hospital and the affiliated Mount Auburn Cambridge Independent Practice Association (MACIPA); Hampden County Physician Associates, LLC (HCPA); Tufts Medical Center and the affiliated New England Quality Care Alliance (NEQCA); Signature Healthcare Corporation, including Brockton Hospital; Lowell General Hospital and the affiliated Lowell General Physician Hospital Organization; South Shore Hospital and the affiliated South Shore Physician Hospital Organization; Atrius Health; and Caritas Christi Health Care.
