Best Practices in Care Coordination - July 19, 2017
AmeriGas, 460 North Gulph Road
King of Prussia, PA
8:00am - 10:30am
Free for GPBCH Members
Join us on July 19th in the Western Suburbs to hear from Health Advocate and Accolade on Best Practices in Care Coordination.

The Issues

-Poor care coordination can result in lower employee productivity, poor health outcomes, and higher costs

-The US has the highest rate of poor primary care coordination in 11 countries surveyed*

-Adults with poor primary care coordination are more likely to be hospitalized or visit the ER*

-Inadequate management of care transitions was responsible for $25 to $45 billion in wasteful spending in 2011 through avoidable complications and unnecessary hospital readmissions**

What You'll Learn

Healthcare Navigation organizations offer employers solutions utilizing personalized patient advocacy, data and technology to provide clinical support and care coordination for their employees and dependents. This approach can result in improved outcomes, reduced costs and increased employee productivity and satisfaction. Our presenters from Health Advocate and Accolade will discuss their best practice approaches and case studies from Severn Trent and AmeriGas for employers to address problems with care coordination and take away actionable solutions.
