Utilize Health Hosts Complimentary Webinar December 11
Nashville, TN (PRUnderground) December 4th, 2019
Targeted Neurological Care Solutions company Utilize Health will host a webinar in coordination with the World Healthcare Congress entitled “Why Neuro is Next: Plans ID $40MM+ in Post-Acute Neuro Savings.” The webinar is scheduled for December 11, 2019 at 2PM EST.
In 2015, the estimated cost of cardiovascular disease in the U.S. reached $555 billion annually and the cost of diabetes exceeded $245 billion. That same year, annual U.S. costs for neurological conditions were estimated at $800 billion. With costs rivaling conditions long targeted by payers, innovative health plans are seeking new opportunities for improved quality and cost in post-acute neuro care.
Health plan Medical Director Debra Poskanzer, MD will join Utilize Health CEO Jessica Harthcock and CCO Becki Baker, RN to share data from across the U.S. documenting the significant opportunity for improved clinical and economic outcomes through targeted post-acute neurological care solutions.
“We’re excited to present the findings of our proprietary neurological claims analyses,” said Harthcock, “including key insights from commercial and employer plans in addition to vulnerable populations in Medicare, Medicaid, Exchanges, and ACOs. We believe neuro presents a new and untapped opportunity to improve quality and cost of care for all risk-bearing entities and the members they serve.”
Utilize Health’s data substantiates the use of neuro-specialized clinicians and digital tools to identify, target, and close neuro-related gaps in care while delivering improved satisfaction and quality of life. Results show Utilize Health’s programs can deliver quality-driven medical cost savings of up to 25 percent within 12 months of program start.
