This is a nice UnitedHealth report highlighting the importance of person-provider relationships … At Nascate we have studied the importance of connecting with the right provider and how it is associated with better outcomes, we’ve also found that as the numbers healthcare services a person requires increases so does the benefit of being connected. For Medicare individuals with similar complex chronic conditions Nascate has identified yearly savings of $3000 per person for those connected to a PCP in a Medical Neighborhood versus those with only specialist connections. This is a big opportunity, we have an attribution matching engine to recommend geographically relevant high performing providers.
