Discern plays leadership role in primary care transformation

Revitalizing primary care is crucial to achieving a high-quality, affordable, accessible, and efficient health care system. While the patient-centered medical home model has helped to transform the organization and delivery of primary care, new payment models are also required to support practices as they journey from fee-for-service to value-based health care.

To support the increased demand for new payment models, Discern Health has developed capabilities to help its clients design value-based payment models, develop performance measurement strategies, transform care, and convene multiple payers. Discern also supplies the technical know-how to help new health care delivery models succeed by developing return-on-investment calculators, payment methodology analysis, and comparative research on quality measures.

One example of our expanded capability is led by Discern Vice President Erik Muther. Erik leads Discern’s efforts in the greater Philadelphia area Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program. This program has pulled together Aetna, Independence Blue Cross, and the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to focus on a new value-based, patient-centered multi-payer primary care model.
