How UC Davis and Anthem found a way to provide better care — and save big money
Sacramento Business Journal

Better data and coordinated care helped six medical groups that teamed up with Anthem Blue Cross provide better care for chronically ill patients — and saved almost $8 million in one year. The UC Davis Health System is one of the groups in the program, which targets preferred-provider organization members with two or more chronic conditions. Each medical group is provided with member data so doctors can intervene to provide more coordinated care for the sickest patients. Providers work in teams — and Anthem pays a coordination fee to make this possible.
