Facilitated Health Networks strengthen the quality of care for members and reduce costs throughout the Philadelphia region.
At Independence Blue Cross, we're leveraging our expertise and collaborating with area health systems and doctors to reimagine how health care is delivered. Through a model we call Facilitated Health Networks (FHN), we aim to create a healthier population by improving the quality of care delivered and reducing health care costs through proactive, coordinated care.
The Independence FHN model uses many of the successful principles of rewarding doctors and hospitals for the quality and outcomes of care they provide, not the quantity. And while these reimbursement business models are now gaining acceptance, they are only one piece of our overall strategy.
