Power to the Patient: Managing Health Care Costs by Managing Demand - By AtoZ Compliance

Online Event
0 0

Overview

Key Take Away:

This webinar will make you understand the legal ramifications of implementing a medical self-care program, and provide “know how” and strategies to empower employees to make better health care costs decisions.

Overview:

One way to reduce managed health care costs is to reduce the overall demand management for medical services. This is in light of the fact that approximately 55% of all emergency room visits are for non-urgent problems and about 25% of all physician visits could have been treated at home. Since the average doctor medical assistance costs $199.00 and the average E.R. visit costs $1,349.00, a great deal of money can be saved through more appropriate use of the health care management system.

Demand can be managed by providing self-care information that helps employees become more knowledgeable about when they need medical assistance and when they can take care of themselves. This is a very important aspect of consumer driven health care.
