Direct Contracting: Evaluating opportunities for employers and providers to achieve better healthcare outcomes

For employers sponsoring health insurance benefits for their employees, maintaining competitive benefits packages is key to attracting and retaining top talent. And in the face of perpetual medical and prescription drug trends, employers are seeking out directing contracting strategies that would allow them to maintain competitive benefits, while also reducing costs and enhancing employee satisfaction.

For provider organizations pursuing the ‘Quadruple Aim’, establishing direct contracts with employers presents opportunities to leverage their population health investments across larger patient bases and receive compensation for efficiency and value. The current climate of price transparency further serves as a catalyst for inducing employer demand for direct contracts.

Join us to hear our consulting actuaries explore direct contracting strategies from both employers’ and provider organizations’ perspectives, including motivations and challenges associated with various strategies. Our product leadership will also explore opportunities to leverage MedInsight’s advanced analytics to facilitate successful outcomes.
