Los Angeles Times

An effort by three healthcare organizations that saved the California Public Employees’ Retirement System $37 million in the last two years is gaining national attention as Medicare and employers search for ways to control rising medical costs.

Blue Shield of California teamed up with the Dignity Health hospital chain, previously known as Catholic Healthcare West, and Hill Physicians Medical Group to coordinate care for 41,000 CalPERS members in the Sacramento area, starting in 2010.
