Highmark Health has established a new organization, HM Home and Community Services LLC (HM HCS), dedicated to transforming post-acute care by increasing quality, service, and value for patients. Brian Holzer, M.D. has been named President of HM HCS. He will also continue to oversee the delivery system’s post-acute care operations, AHN Healthcare@Home, which he joined in 2013.
HM HCS is incorporating an innovative strategy aimed at shifting post-acute care contracts, starting with skilled nursing facilities and home health care agencies, from a fee-for-service incentive model, to a quality and outcomes-based incentive model. By working with at-risk payers and providers to leverage their claims and utilization management data, HM HCS will align pay-for-performance incentives to quality and outcomes.
