AllWays Health Partners, a member of Mass General Brigham, announced today that it will change its name to Mass General Brigham Health Plan to reflect and advance the system’s unique provider-payer integration that is improving health outcomes, reducing costs, and transforming the healthcare experience. The change will take effect Jan. 1, 2023.
The new brand identity reflects Mass General Brigham’s vision for a unified, world-class academic healthcare system and fosters collaborative innovation that can simultaneously lower costs and improve care. This direction is supported by a value-based care model, which is an intentional shift in healthcare financing and delivery from the quantity of services to the quality of services provided.
A key part of value-based care is the flexibility to deliver services in the most medically appropriate, cost-effective, and convenient setting, whether it is an academic medical center, a community-based provider, in the home, or virtually. In addition to improving health outcomes and reducing costs, this flexibility creates opportunities to better manage the health of certain populations or to address the social issues underlying and exacerbating healthcare disparities.
“We are bringing together industry-leading expertise to provide meaningful healthcare solutions for our patients and communities,” said Gregg Meyer, M.D., MS, President of the Community Division and Executive Vice President Value Based Care, Mass General Brigham. “This kind of collaboration that will be reflected in the new name is at the center of our strategy to advance a value-based care model that improves outcomes, holds down costs, and enhances the healthcare experience.”
