Ongoing Education on Alternate Sites of Care Can Reduce Inappropriate ER Utilization

With higher and higher ER bills coming in to the plan and members, employers are learning that it’s more important than ever for them to make sure that continual reminders are sent to their employees and members about which conditions can be handled by more convenient and lower cost sites of care such as a nurse advice line, telehealth (which often also covers behavioral health), on-site or retail clinic or urgent care. They’re also sharing details on how to reach these resources, and how much lower out-of-pocket costs will be to members who utilize them versus the ER. Keeping this information top of mind when it’s needed is the key to effective communications in this area.

Healthcare Moves into the 21st Century

Innovation is defined as a new idea, more effective device or process. Healthcare is widely considered one of the least innovative business sectors by the tech industry and yet, according to a recent survey by Ketchum, consumers value innovation in healthcare above innovation in all other industries. Considering that many doctors still fax prescriptions to pharmacies to be filled, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that this group is slow to adopt technological advances. Things are changing though.
