Improve the Value of
Healthcare in Wisconsin:
Avoid Low-Value Care
Wednesday, September 13
10:00am – 11:00am CT
Register Here
When patients receive low-value care, meaning care that is not supported by research or duplicative, they pay more for unnecessary or inadequate care. Not only does low-value care cost patients more money, but it also means higher costs for their self-funded employers. This is a problem because when employers have a higher healthcare spend, they cannot allocate as much of their budget toward other employee benefits, including wages.

In this session, you’ll learn from representatives of the Wisconsin Health Information Organization (WHIO) Low-Value Care Committee how to identify low-value care and what you can do to encourage your employees to participate in shared decision-making with their providers to avoid it.

The Alliance Updates and Resources
New Bundled Pricing

The Alliance has partnered with Orthopedic & Spine Centers of Wisconsin to provide bundled pricing for in-office carpel tunnel and trigger finger release procedures. This bundled pricing is the lowest in our networks and will be available beginning July 1st, 2023.

This is a great opportunity for employees to receive high-quality care in an office setting using local anesthesia. In-office procedures lower the risk of infection and eliminate the risk of general anesthesia while increasing patient comfort.
