The Alliance Annual Meeting served as the launchpad for our Roadmap to High-Value Health Care, featuring real-life examples from employers that use the flexibility and data The Alliance provides to move the needle on quality and cost.
Employers are using upstream methods to give employees access to high-value health care. This was the focus of a panel discussion hosted by The Alliance at their 2019 Annual Seminar in Madison, Wis.
Moving “upstream” can help employers who self-fund their health benefits improve outcomes, lower costs and gain more “joy in supporting employees,” according to Dr. Rishi Manchanda, a primary care physician, public health innovator and former health system executive.
“The more time you spend with your provider, the more accurate your diagnosis will be,” said Dr. Michael Tuggy. Dr. Tuggy is the vice chair at Family Medicine for America’s Health and a clinical professor at the University of Washington. He spoke at two events hosted by The Alliance to start a discussion about high-value health care and employer-sponsored direct primary care clinics.
