BCBSM case study cover

 

In 2002, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) launched the first of over 20 Collaborative Quality Initiatives under its Value Partnerships program. This unique model formed the basis for a value-based health care ecosystem in the State of Michigan comprising a single dominant payer, an extensive network of providers, and a small number of academic medical centers. In this, the latest ICHOM case study, we describe how this approach has led to improved outcomes for patients and providers and lower costs for payers, benefiting all stakeholders and vastly improving the value of health care in Michigan.
