New Health Care Company Begins Work to Enhance Value-Based Care in PA
The Care Centered Collaborative, a new Harrisburg-based health care company founded by thousands of Pennsylvania physicians statewide, is now open for business and says it has the tools to help independent physicians enhance the patient experience through higher quality care, cost savings, and greater customer satisfaction.
Formed by the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED), the leading advocate for Pennsylvania patients and their physicians, the Care Centered Collaborative supports the provision of value-based care by Pennsylvania physicians. One new service will enable care excellence in the federal government's Quality Payment Program (QPP). Established by the landmark Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 ("MACRA"), QPP is designed to promote high quality healthcare for Medicare beneficiaries.
