Qcentive’s products and services leverage the proven know-how and innovations of Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and its Alternative Quality Contract (AQC) program, a groundbreaking value-based payment initiative launched in 2008.
The AQC fosters shared responsibility for improving care quality and moderating the unsustainable rate of increase in healthcare costs. It is one of the largest private payment reform initiatives in the U.S. and has become a model for state and national policymakers, including leaders working with the U.S. Medicare and Medicaid programs.
Studies by Harvard Medical School and other researchers, published in the New England Journal of Medicine and Health Affairs, found the AQC has sustainably improved the quality of patient care and lowered costs.*
