THE RIGHT CARE,
AT THE RIGHT PLACE,
AT THE RIGHT TIME
Covering the North and Central region of Texas, BSWQA is a comprehensive accountable care network comprised of more than 3,700 primary and specialty care physicians, 46 hospitals, post-acute care facilities, and other stakeholders throughout the care continuum assuming joint responsibility for achieving the Triple Aim framework: Better Care, Better Health, Better Value.
Through its dedication to collaboration and accountability BSWQA has quickly become a leader in the industry for creating a care system that is more integrated, coordinated and accountable; one that delivers the right care, at the right place, at the right time. Our physicians and multitude of stakeholders across the care continuum collectively manage the health of patient populations, including lives attributed to our network through the Baylor Scott & White (BSWH) Employee Health Plan, Aetna Commercial, Humana Medicare Advantage, Aetna Medicare Advantage and Scott & White’s Medicare Advantage. Several other commercial contracts are nearing completion.
Driven by a robust population health infrastructure that includes broad access to care, quality care coordination, the largest network of patient-centered medical homes in the nation, and sophisticated data analytics, BSWQA’s population health strategies are coming to fruition. Notable improvements in important population health measures that include quality, efficiency, cost and outcomes have been observed. We are seeing considerable reductions in readmissions, as well as BSWH employee health plan medical costs. In addition, more patients are being retained “in-network” to BSWQA physicians, our high-acuity patients are being successfully assigned to RN Care Managers, and our network has exceeded ALL quality metrics set forth in all BSWQA managed care contracts.
The impressive results accomplished by BSWQA in improving care cannot help but fuel our hope for a better health care system for the future and inspire us all to continue on the health care transformation journey.
