Because members receive access to coordinated, proactive care — allowing their caregivers to anticipate their medical needs — they can stay healthier. And that means a stronger, happier, more productive workforce.
Through Accountable Care Solutions, employers are able to give their employees access to providers and facilities that are committed to delivering greater value, while keeping care costs under control.
We can help reduce the overall cost of care when employees see caregivers who are accountable for delivering better-coordinated, high-quality care.
High-tech coordinated care means doctors have deeper information on entire populations. With this, health care gaps can be identified and dealt with faster. This can result in a healthier, more productive workforce.
Because members are more engaged with their doctors, they can get better, more complete care. They will spend less time chasing records and will likely have fewer repeat tests because doctors in Accountable Care Organizations electronically share patient information and coordinate treatment. That can mean lower out-of-pocket costs.
Because care coordination is improved, members can experience faster service, fewer tests and reduced out-of-pocket expenses. And members with chronic conditions benefit from proactive care that should result in fewer emergency room visits and/or hospital admissions.
Members get access to popular apps like iTriage® that can help identify health symptoms and help members choose the most convenient place to get treatment.
Doctors that are part of an Accountable Care Organization have the opportunity to change the way they deliver care by moving from an outdated model that rewards them for the number of patients they see to a more efficient system that rewards the value they create and the savings they generate.
Care coordination technologies can help everyone, from primary care physicians, to specialists, to pharmacists and nurses, understand what's going on with a patient. This can help reduce waste and duplication in care.
Technology is at the core of Accountable Care Organizations. Aetna has invested millions of dollars in technology solutions that allow doctors to deliver better care and empowers patients to live healthier lives.
