BCBSNC and UNC Health Care announce partnership to launch model practice

Today, BCBSNC published a News Release announcing a joint venture with UNC Health Care to open a new type of health care practice. This practice will extend beyond what is currently called the ‘medical home’ and will position teams of health care providers to work collaboratively with patients and families in delivering higher quality, coordinated care.

BCBSNC believes this approach will result in better health and fewer complications—both of which will help control rising health care costs. While several of the details have yet to be determined, this pilot practice is expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2011 in Orange or Durham County.
