Quality over quantity.
A high-performance network (HPN) is carefully curated network of service providers with a demonstrated track record of improved patient health outcomes and practice efficiencies, aligned with our mission to offer high-quality care at a lower total unit cost. A cost-effective solution to the continued rise of health plan premiums, while sustaining employee benefits, Healthcare Highways’ HPN is built to:
- improve patient outcomes,
- strengthen the primary-care-physician-to-patient (P2P) relationship,
- and empower primary care physicians.
The adoption of health plans like Healthcare Highways that use high-performance networks is gaining traction. These carefully curated networks aren’t new. A decade ago they were common, but lost popularity to aggressively marketed broad networks. They began regaining market presence in 2014 by bringing fresh solutions to the employers seeking to maintain healthy work forces affordably.
INCENTIVIZE OUTCOMES, NOT OUTPUT
Selection criteria for physicians in these networks vary but most include metrics around referral management, providing efficient care, and the provider’s demonstrated ability to produce positive patient outcomes.
Traditional networks rarely offer performance-based incentives to physicians.The typical fee-for-service model reimburses providers for the number of services they provide. In exchange for a consolidated, high-performance network of quality providers, members and employers pay lower premiums. Members also have lower out-of-pocket costs.
Combined, these programs enable physicians, care teams, and members to work in tandem to:
- Facilitate the right care at the right time.
- Identify and direct clinical resources to high-risk patients, reducing the occurrence of costly health events.
- Ensure compliance with treatment programs for members with chronic conditions.
- Increase member adherence to preventive and prescription drug treatments, avoiding higher costs later as health conditions go untreated.
Carefully selected, high-performance networks deliver what employers need to quell inefficient care and rising costs, while increasing improved patient outcomes, strengthening the patient/PCP relationship, and empowering primary care physicians.
