Proactive and personalized healthcare for your employees
From improved healthcare quality to affordability, value-based care is designed to provide a better overall experience for your employees. The focus is on personalized care that treats the whole person. Through wellness and prevention as well as management of chronic conditions, the goal is to help employees get healthy faster and help healthy employees stay healthy longer.
Here are some of the benefits your employee, Joe, may experience as a result of value-based care.
Receives coordinated care
Joe and his primary care doctor work together to evaluate Joe's current health status and create a tailored plan that will help him better manage his care. Joe's medical history, health successes and challenges are collected and easily accessible by all of his doctors.
Gains proactive partnership
Joe can stay focused on his health with guidance and support from his doctor, who reminds him to schedule preventive medical tests, coordinates follow-up care, and connected with specialists in Joe's network.
Avoids unnecessary care
Because Joe's doctors are well connected and informed, they recommend tests and treatments that are evidence-based and appropriate, so he gets the right care at the right time and place.
Enjoys ease and convenience
Joe benefits from easier access to his primary care doctor through extended office hours, same-day and weekend appointments, and telephone access to the clinical team. He also enjoys a more seamless experience across care settings.
Gets healthy faster, stays healthy longer
