Webinar: Care Redesign: Lowering Costs While Improving Patient Outcomes

Today’s care delivery is influenced by many factors, including changing regulations, heightened consumer awareness, shifting payment models and the recognition that all factors contributing to a member’s overall health must be considered.

Despite these strong winds of change, the healthcare system - and payers - often find themselves in catch up mode, without the proper resources to transform. Add to this mounting pressure to lower costs, and you have an imperative to significantly alter the overall approach to care.

In this webinar recording, attendees will learn about innovative, real-world examples of how FirstCare Health Plans is improving outcomes and lowering costs, including:

  • Collaborating with providers and health systems
  • Partnering with community resources
  • Making critical information available to key stakeholders

Additionally, HealthEdge’s Harry Merkin will articulate additional examples from today’s healthcare landscape of payers, providers and community resources coming together for common goals that benefit all constituencies.
