Value-based Care Resources

Explore the future of primary care

Continue learning more about how value-based care focuses on collaboration and coordination to benefit healthcare providers and their patients.

Value-based care in action

Take advantage of online training

Humana and the University of Houston, through the Humana Integrated Health Systems Sciences Institute, have created a Value-based Care Specialization program available on Coursera. This online training, for which continuing education credit is available to physicians and nurses, teaches the fundamentals that healthcare providers, academics, and business and industry professionals need, with knowledge that is practical and actionable.

Enroll in the program

Connect patients to resources

The Humana Community Navigator is a one-stop directory of resources across the United States that address the social needs of people looking for help. Resources are shared via an online platform to enable finding and connecting to these resources. All programs listed are direct services that are free, reduced or sliding scale cost.

Research: acute care in Medicare Advantage model

In a recent study published in JAMA primary care providers caring for Medicare Advantage patients found that participating in advanced value-based payment models meant their patients had fewer hospitalizations and emergency department visits, especially those that are the result of chronic disease exacerbations.

Research: addressing adherence disparities

Solutions to address the drivers of lower medication adherence, specifically in minority populations, are needed to improve population outcomes and reduce inequities. Humana-led research proposes that integrated medical and pharmacy plans are well positioned to address racial and ethnic health disparities related to medication adherence.

Research: HSRNs and outcomes

Understanding how different health-related social needs (HSRNs) relate to different health outcomes can inform targeted, evidence-based policies, investments and innovations to address HSRNs among older adults enrolled in Medicare Advantage. A cross-sectional study found that self-reported HRSNs were common and associated with statistically significantly increased rates of acute care utilization, with variation in which HRSNs were associated with different utilization measures.
