The Secret Sauce to Fixing Healthcare

The status quo isn’t working: at least 30% of all healthcare is unnecessary, only 30% of members are getting high-quality care, and employers are still paying 200 - 300% of Medicare. So what’s the secret to fixing healthcare? Is it HDHPs, Wellness, RBP, Narrow Networks, or Network Discounts?

The secret to fixing healthcare is Quality. If you can get your members to the best quality providers, there’s a 30 - 40% savings on the total episode of care. Better quality healthcare is more efficient, has better outcomes, and is way less expensive.  The key to changing the status quo is to identify the best providers and then to motivate your members to actually use them.  Join us and learn how!
