Employers are tired of wasting money on unnecessary medical procedures, wrong diagnosis, and complications. High healthcare procedure costs don’t necessarily correlate with high quality or good outcomes. By the end of the year, it is estimated that almost 60% of employers will have some type of direct contract with healthcare providers, whether it’s a Center of Excellence, Narrow Network, or a High Performing Network. Tune into this webinar to find out why employers are implementing direct contracting with providers and winning with better outcomes and overall cost savings. Learn about bundled pricing, reducing complications, and increasing the quality of care with a dedicated direct contract with healthcare providers. Hear how some employers, such as Walmart, are now making it mandatory that employees and plan members travel for major medical procedures, and only receive care at specific healthcare providers. Learn from providers how you can have a Center of Excellence as a dedicated employer program.
With "Centers of Excellence" being such an overused term, we will dispel the misconceptions of what they are and what one must have to be considered a Center of Excellence. How do you tell whether a hospital is really a COE? What really is a COE and why should employers and payers be creating special networks of COE’s? Have you heard of a Center of Adequacy? Are you accidentally allowing your employees to receive care at Centers of Adequacy versus Centers of Excellence?
This session will bring a thought-provoking discussion on how employers and payers are finding ways to save money through revolutionary new ideas. We'll cover pharmacy medical travel addressing the high costs of specialty pharmacy. And we'll tackle blockchain and data and security. Tune in to hear how several employers are crushing it and saving millions of dollars a year by utilizing medical travel. Find out how they are succeeding and why they are such advocates.
Tune in to hear how employers and others are creating best practices for the business case for Centers of Excellence with real statistics and data that can help organizations understand how to implement and go about negotiating bundle packaging and more. The cost savings are phenomenal, and the time is now to implement some of these concepts into your strategy for your benefits programs.
