Network Development in Action
The healthcare arm of a large union wanted to create a more efficient and effective offering for members and their families. After careful analysis, they decided to build, staff and manage their own healthcare facility – providing primary care, physical therapy, chiropractic and diagnostic services to 22,000 patients - in the heart of a bustling Northeastern coastal town. The healthcare arm of a large union wanted to create a more efficient and effective offering for members and their families. After careful analysis, they decided to build, staff and manage their own healthcare facility – providing primary care, physical therapy, chiropractic and diagnostic services to 22,000 patients - in the heart of a bustling Northeastern coastal town. Seeking to optimize the business and clinical processes of the new state-of-the-art facilities, the union turned to the Continuum Health Platform to help improve the overall health of their members, while successfully lowering costs. The Continuum Health team worked hand-in-hand with the enterprise’s physician leadership and Patient Advisory Council to gain a deep understanding of the specific requirements of the Union members and their families. Among the list of members’ “must-haves” were flexible hours, shorter waiting times, a multilingual staff and no co-pays. The list of union leadership “must-haves” included improved health of members, increased patient satisfaction and lower overall costs. Through the successful implementation of Continuum Health’s Practice Management and Population Health services, the benefits of such an exciting self-funded program are twofold: members and their families enjoy personalized, high-quality healthcare, while any cost savings are returned to union members.
