As a fully consolidated healthcare market, Rochester’s health systems, physicians, and payers are expanding clinical offerings and access to care beyond the market, while health systems are growing through affiliation and acquisition. As providers take steps to move more fully into value-based contracting, one large clinically integrated network is involved with a statewide network that could bring value-based contracting to Rochester and the entire state. Local insurers are also promoting value-based initiatives, with insurance leader Excellus BlueCross BlueShield operating a statewide accountable care-like program involving 1,700 providers and driving clinical care decisions for hundreds of thousands of New Yorkers. The new healthcare delivery landscape will be driven by the post-COVID fallout and will feature technology enhancements, budget stabilization, and consolidated services.
