Care Navigation: Strategies to ensure your employees are engaged when using healthcare services
One of the biggest obstacles facing employers today is how to get their employees and covered dependents focused on achieving the triple aim – receiving the right care in the right setting for the right price. In order to accomplish this goal, many employers are turning to care navigation services.
According to Sara Heath, Site Editor for PatientEngagementHIT.com, healthcare navigators are like the industry’s version of a car GPS. They help patients get from place to place in a healthcare system that can often be difficult to understand. But unlike GPS, healthcare navigators are not necessarily helping patients get from a physical point A to point B. Instead, healthcare navigators help patients navigate the logistical considerations involved in receiving care and helping the patient to understand their costs based on their current health insurance coverage. Heath goes on to say that, “Navigators are critical because they help patients understand an industry that can often be convoluted or lead to dead ends. When patients have trouble moving through healthcare, they can sometimes give up or be led astray, ultimately hindering patients’ abilities to receive treatment or pay more for unnecessary services.”
Join us on August 28th to hear from an industry expert on how these services work and the benefits of adding a care navigation program to your benefit plan. Learn how the right combination of technology and personal healthcare advocacy can actually improve care and lower healthcare costs.
