Buffalo’s top health systems and payers collaborate on a variety of initiatives to drive payment reform and population health management. As Kaleida Health and Catholic Health continue to develop their integrated delivery networks through acquisition and clinical expansion, their aligned physician groups drive payment reform through value-based care and population health management. Insurers offer tailored narrow network products and high-deductible plans in collaboration health systems to appeal to employer groups looking to keep costs down. Independent orthopedic physician groups are creatively collaborating with health systems to control clinical care and protocols while remaining autonomous. A pending acquisition in the payer sector could significantly impact the highly competitive market. Expect the new healthcare delivery landscape to be driven by the COVID-19 pandemic that forced valuable technology advancements in telehealth, but also resulted in strained budgets and services throughout the market.
