February 6th, 2023 – Axia Women’s Health announced today it will be partnering with Wildflower Health, a leading women’s health solutions company, and Healthcare Transformation Consortium (HTC), a collaborative of independent health systems in New Jersey, on a groundbreaking partnership to launch a statewide value-based maternity care initiative that will transform the delivery and financing of maternity care.
Initially, the value-based model will be delivered via a phased rollout to team members and dependents within HTC member health systems, with the goal to ultimately expand to other payers and self-insured employers. This employer-focused solution will provide eligible patients with a comprehensive set of digital tools and access to health advocates. Health advocates will serve as extenders to patients and they will partner with Axia care centers to coordinate care and drive improved outcomes. Through the partnership, eligible patients will also gain access to educational tools and resources throughout their pregnancy and postnatal period. In this way, the program is designed to keep patients engaged, supported, and monitored as an extension of the care provided by Axia Women’s Health providers.
Along with improving clinical outcomes, this partnership will leverage care transformation capabilities from Wildflower that fully operationalize value-based care, a model of payment where healthcare professionals are compensated based upon patient outcomes instead of the number of services rendered. The maternity bundle is comprehensive, spanning from prenatal to postnatal care and accounts for the total cost of pregnancy for both mom and baby. It ensures providers are compensated based on the best clinical care and cost containment methodologies.
“As the demands on OB-GYNs continue to mount, it’s critical that we work together to find innovative ways to offer more support,” said Gaurov Dayal, MD, Chief Executive Officer at Axia Women’s Health. “The model being introduced in New Jersey fully equips clinicians to work more efficiently while providing personalized support for every patient, even between office visits. It makes it possible for providers to do their best work and be rewarded for high-quality outcomes.”
