Healthcare in the U.S. varies from zip code to zip code, with mere blocks potentially making the difference in costs and quality of care. To combat the inequity this can cause within their communities, some hospitals and providers are pushing for more standardized care through clinically integrated networks.
We are ecstatic to share our news with you. Embright has reached a new milestone! Partnering with a clinically integrated network (CIN) like Embright is not a cost-shifting technique nor a single-minded point solution. Embright offers employers the opportunity to design their healthcare program with the providers delivering care, taking into consideration the holistic care needs of the population.
Embright, a clinically integrated network founded by UW Medicine, MultiCare Health System, and LifePoint Health, is managing the Washington State Health Care Authority (HCA) accountable care program for its Public Employees Benefits Board (PEBB) and School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB) through a management services agreement between UW Medicine and Embright.
Embright, a clinically integrated network founded by UW Medicine, MultiCare Health System, and LifePoint Health, has teamed up with Boeing to continue to provide affordable, accessible, and integrated care to its employees.
The strategic partnership with Embright, the clinically integrated network founded by UW Medicine, MultiCare Health System, and LifePoint Health, will increase access to affordable and quality care for Pacific Northwest employers.
The clinically integrated network will leverage Innovaccer’s FHIR-enabled Data Activation Platform to track its overall performance and address patient healthcare needs.
‘Embright’ will design and coordinate value-based care models to improve population health throughout the Pacific Northwest.
A significant cause of our overall lack of performance and high spending is due to the way our healthcare system is structured in how providers are paid for the care they deliver, which is called fee-for-service (FFS).
A member's desire to connect with their doctor through digital technology was on the rise before the COVID-19 pandemic. Since the pandemic began, the demand for a digital option to interact with doctors steadily increased, and now it is an expected service to no one's surprise.
Advanced primary care (APC) builds on the importance of an assigned primary care provider for everyone. APC is an approach of providing medical services that involve a team of health care professionals working together and to their full potential, providing comprehensive, holistic, and longitudinal care to individuals and families.
Members can experience a "best of all worlds" virtual health care product- one that combines a convenient, timely, and easy-to-navigate platform combined with high-quality, local, and vetted clinicians.
It’s an exciting time in healthcare – finally the technologies, stakeholders, and incentive structures are aligning to create new care models that can significantly improve the patient experience and reduce costs.
"Difficult, confusing, and frustrating," are words used to commonly describe a personal experience interacting with the U.S. healthcare system. These are some of the many adjectives used that are suitable for print.
To do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result is one definition of insanity. Yet, this is what many employers end up doing in association with managing their employee benefits health program, not because they want to or like to - because there have been limited options.
For decades healthcare has been built with an approach of one-size-fits-all. This approach obviously lacks customization or personalization.
As we peek out of the COVID-19 trenches, longing to see the daylight on the horizon, we now have an even deeper appreciation for our health, healthcare workers, and health systems at large.
You have likely heard of a clinically integrated network, or more commonly known as a CIN, being a popular healthcare management strategy. For employers looking to exceed the healthcare status quo, many have turned to CINs as the solution.
