Coordinated Health/Care(TM) Saves Participating Employers $1000+ per Employee in 2008

unnecessary diagnostics and 11 months' delay in treatment. Worse yet, these delays result in poor health outcomes.

Both innovative employers and the healthcare industry are beginning to recognize that resolving this critical situation calls for a new business model based on coordination of care.

Coordinated Health/Care combines plan incentives for use of a Primary Care Physician as a "medical home," with Patient Advocacy, Wellness, Disease/Chronic Condition Management, and Acute Care Coordination, into a single, cohesive system. All customer service calls are routed through a central staff of Care Coordinators, who use an integrated IT platform to go beyond answering questions to actually coordinating patient care and guiding patients to better health.

"Coordinated Health/Care focuses on intercepting patients when they are ready to change," said Lewis. Supported by their systems, the Care Coordinators intercept patients when they are "reachable" and "teachable" to guide them to better health within their physician's plan of care.

The following statistics, based on the actual utilization of Coordinated Health/Care members, show how the healthcare process is made more efficient:

    Primary Care Usage           +4%       Inpatient Admissions           -5%
    Preventive Screening         +4%       Inpatient Length of Stay      -13%
    Specialist Utilization       -4%       Inpatient Days                -17%
    ER Usage                    -12%       Outpatient Non-Surgical        -6%

In addition, 26% of members who utilized the services of Coordinated Health/Care said that they changed the healthcare services they used due to the education and guidance provided by the Care Coordinators; and 55% stated that they were made more aware of their health status and sources of personal health risks. Annually, Coordinated Health/Care works
