North Shore-LIJ Health System has secured a value-based collaboration deal with Humana that will offer coordinated care to more than 1,000 Medicare Advantage patients in Long Island, N.Y., and New York City starting Jan. 1. The partnership allows Humana's Medicare Advantage patients to seek treatment from the members of North Shore-LIJ Premium's physician integrated network.
An accountable care partnership was formed between the Nebraska Health Network and Humana to better serve Humana's Medicare Advantage members in Omaha starting next year. As part of the deal, the groups will work together on prevention and management of diseases such as diabetes to boost care quality and cut patient costs.
The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board is establishing the Center for Economic Analysis to study the audit's role in capital markets. The center also will employ economic analysis to make rule making, inspection and other regulatory activity more effective. Luigi Zingales, an economist at the University of Chicago, will head the center, which is expected to begin operations early next year.
