Patient-Centered Primary Care Program

PW_E185959
Enhanced Personal Health Care is our centerpiece value-based, patient-centered care program and an important part of Anthem Togetherworks, our name for our provider collaboration work.  
You may sometimes see this program referred to as “Blue Distinction Total Care.” This is the name that some employers, notably those with employees across many states, use to refer to the collection of patient-centered, value-based payment programs that Blue Cross and Blue Shield plans across the country sponsor. For that reason, some of your patients may know the program as Blue Distinction Total Care.  
What’s behind our program? Enhanced Personal Health Care was designed carefully, based on pilot programs we sponsored on the leading edge of the patient-centered care movement. It is designed to be a complete package, including financial incentives and value-based compensation, but also provides support for making changes to the delivery system that drive better care. This support comes in the form of meaningful information, clinical insights, analysis and administrative advice from local staff who are committed to the success of our provider partners.  
The payment, information and support we offer are meant to support important changes for participating practices. Each program element supports these key elements of patient-centered care: expanded access, shared decision making, proactive health management, coordinated care delivery, adherence to evidence based guidelines and care planning built around the needs of the individual patient.  
Millions of our members already have benefitted from high-quality, patient-centered care delivered by Enhanced Personal Health Care providers. As our offerings under Anthem Togetherworks expand, Enhanced Personal Health Care remains a solid foundation for our collaborations with doctors and hospitals across the health care system.
