About the Company

Our client leads the health care industry in improving health and reducing claims costs for health plan members with heath care needs that cause or exacerbate co-existing medical conditions. They have an intensive outpatient program that treats an overlooked population. These members cost health plans millions of medical dollars primarily due to preventable health care usage and assistance and medical inpatient admissions.  They use a proprietary analytics platform and predictive modeling to identify the users of medical healthcare services with costs that can be significantly reduced by addressing the underlying issues. Through proactive outreach, they engage and treat these individuals in a patient-centric program that integrates evidence-based medical interventions and care by medical staff.
