Weekly Radio Segment – Provider StrategyPosted by Josh Wilcox on October 10, 2011 no comments
At Harvard Pilgrim, we’re working with physicians to develop new care delivery models. This collaborative effort aims to improve patient care, streamline decision making and take waste out of the health care system. One program focuses on Orthopedic care. When working closely with physicians and hospitals, we see real opportunity to improve quality and reduce costs. We put the Orthopedic surgeon at the center of the care team, who coordinates all services based on what is best for the patient. Our strategy looks at the complete suite of services before, during and after an Orthopedic surgery. And, based on results, we’ll expand this Orthopedic program into other surgical specialties across New England. The innovations will save employers money, help keep patients healthier, and improve the physician-patient experience, keeping us all focused on making health care work better.
