Becker’s Hospital Review
When healthcare providers and payers forge strong collaborations, it quickens the amount of time it takes to turn medical research into usable procedures, according to a report from the Alliance of Community Health Plans.
For the report, titled “Accelerating Adoption of Evidence-Based Care: Payer-Provider Partnerships,” ACHP conducted a literature review of the role health plans play in changing physician behavior. The association reached out to its member organizations, which include Geisinger Health Plan, Kaiser Permanente and UPMC Health Plan, in spring 2017 to interview them about their collaborations with providers.
