As we approach the end of this year, facing yet another wave of COVID-19, I want to thank you first for your great patient care, and second for your participation in C3. It has not been an easy task to continue the work of value-based care in the midst of shifting health care landscape. But keeping patients healthy, and out of the hospital, is what we signed up for when we chose to be primary care providers. And value-based care is how we get paid for that work.
C3 practices have accomplished much this year, including:
- Helping more than 12,000 women get their mammogram.
- Screening more than 13,000 patients for colon cancer.
- Getting more than 4,000 diabetic patients in for care.
- Conducting more than 18,000 annual wellness visits.
- Checking in with more than 14,000 patients about their emotional state.
Additionally, on the financial side of the house, our practices achieved shared savings in all of our 2020 contracts, resulting in a total payout of more than $15 million to network practices this fall for the work done in 2020.
As we start to come out of the pandemic, it is increasingly evident that value-based payments help to create more sustainable primary care, which results in healthier patients. We look forward to supporting you where we can as we do this work together.
In this newsletter, you will see the progress that has been made this year, as well as new tips about how to continue this work. We hope you find this information useful, and we welcome your feedback as we go into the new year.
Thank you again for all you do!
