Physicians will have access to new tools, better data and care support.

The value-based care agreement will coordinate care through data analytics. It will focus on improving care for members with chronic conditions by avoiding health complications.

It is designed to allow physicians to have more face time with patients and to provide more personalized care. Patients will have access to proactive health screenings and programs that are focused on preventing illness.

The contract provides Humana HMO, PPO and private fee-for-service Medicare Advantage members access to the provider's 248 primary care and specialty physicians at its 37 practices across Albany's capital district, and to its five urgent care facilities in Delmar, Niskayuna, North Greenbush, Albany and Latham.
