Northwest Community Healthcare (NCH) has a Physician Hospital Organization (PHO); Northwest Community Health Partners (NWHP) is delegated by Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) to administer their HMO products including Blue Advantage, HMOI, Blue Precision and Medicare Advantage.
Our PHO has been awarded 5 out of 5 stars in Quality Measures by BCBS for the past three years. The Blue Star rating is awarded to groups that demonstrate a high level of performance in providing patient care.
The PHO also has a successful Clinical Integration program, a foundational strategy that enables health systems to integrate and work together to improve care processes. We currently participate in the BCBS, Medicare United, and Cigna Accountable Care Organizations.
