DOWNERS GROVE, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PinpointCare recently enhanced its collaborative relationship with DuPage Medical Group (DMG) to manage payments for the physician organization’s Blue Cross Blue Shield value-based care insurance program and for Medicare Advantage. The partnership will also handle data management and commercial services related to the payment plans. Like PinpointCare, DMG remains committed to implementing innovative care models and solutions to provide the best possible care for patients.
An early adopter of Medicare’s Bundled Payments for Care Improvement (BPCI) initiative, DMG remains the largest independent physician practice in the Chicago area and has been using PinpointCare’s care coordination platform to manage CMS orthopedic bundles as well as risk-based contracts with its more than 490 physicians since June 2015.
“DuPage Medical Group considers itself at the forefront of the evolving paradigm shift to value-based care,” said DMG Chief Financial Officer Dennis Fine. “PinpointCare offers a care coordination system that will allow us to manage multiple patient populations on multiple care protocols as we grow our value-based programs.”
In August 2015, DMG partnered with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois on a new value-based model called BCBSIL Practice Advance. Practice Advance is an innovative care model that focuses on physician engagement to facilitate high quality, cost effective care. Based on its experience with PinpointCare, DMG is expanding the use of the PinpointCare platform to include BCBSIL, as well as Medicare Advantage patients.
“We feel very fortunate to team with a visionary organization like DuPage Medical Group, who is focused on providing high-quality and affordable healthcare in a smarter, patient-focused way,” said PinpointCare Chief Executive Officer Joel Splan.
