Aplos Provider Network is a high performance, clinically integrated healthcare provider network for Employers that is focused on high quality outcomes and cost savings initiatives. Our Providers and care teams focus on early detection, prevention, wellness programs, disease management, and post-discharge programs that reduce hospital admissions, readmissions and much more. Our Providers deliver both lower costs and higher quality healthcare services through a patient-centered medical home model that is patient-centered, evidence-based, appropriate, and coordinated.
Our Clinically Integrated Network, Technology and analytics solutions improve the performance of our Provider and care teams by sharing patient medical information for a more efficient team approach to healthcare delivery, reducing duplication of health services, improving prompt healthcare delivery, reducing unnecessary hospital and other healthcare services.
Robust data-sharing and effective quality measurement play a critical role as well in identifying providers delivering quality care at a lower cost. Quality standards for our Networks are well-defined, rigorous, and derived from sufficient data in order to drive performance delivering quality outcomes and make a substantial impact on health care spending.
The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) develops evidence-based clinical practice guidelines (CPGs), which serve as a framework for clinical decisions and supporting best practices. Clinical practice guidelines are statements that include recommendations intended to optimize patient care. They are informed by a systematic review of evidence, and an assessment of the benefits and harms of alternative care options. CPGs should follow a sound, transparent methodology to translate best evidence into clinical practice for improved patient outcomes. Additionally, evidence-based CPGs are a key aspect of patient-centered care.
With more than 30 years’ experience in clinical quality improvement and cost savings, we have the strategic advisory expertise, healthcare analytical capabilities and operational experience to help our clients determine what insights they should derive from their analytics, what actions they should take to drive improvements, and how they should prioritize and plan for success. Our solutions include: clinical integration, health data analytics and modeling, provider and patient portals, virtual health and more.
The Aplos Employer-Provider Direct Advanced Primary Care financing and delivery model provides an alternative to traditional FFS-based primary care models, and it greatly improves the patient-doctor relationship, reduces the fragmentation of patient care, and improves both personal and professional satisfaction for physicians. This alternative primary care arrangement generates systemwide reductions in health care utilization including hospitalization rates, emergency department usage, unnecessary radiology and diagnostic tests, and specialist care, leading to broad-based health care cost savings.
Our care model both enhances and optimizes healthcare services by focusing our resources specifically on personalized proactive care and coordinating the information with Providers and Care Teams. We operate within our framework to manage our complete care responsibilities and then interface the meaningful data to our healthcare partners to provide the most current clinical data and trending information for action.
Our Population Health platform allows users to perform Health Management and Care Management Services, including Closing Gaps in Care, Transitional Care Management, and improving evidence-based guidelines. It includes its own aggregate data analytic tools with drill down to the patient and, if available, the provider level so users can evaluate program performance at all levels and take immediate action. It also houses eRefer, a referral management tool for clients who do that type of patient outreach. We do not do any patient outreach ourselves, but support those who do to get the best outcomes.

Our care navigators are patient advocates that specialize in understanding social determinants of health and how they impact the compliance of care plans. By listening to the patient and understanding their issues and concerns, our care navigators can help set doctors appointments, transportation, secure DME, connect to local senior services or find vendors to help them as needed.
The APLOS High-Performance Provider Network is available for Employer's Occupational Health and Workers Compensation programs. The 24 hour coverage model has proven to lower cost and improve outcomes for Employers.
Quality measures are “tools that help us measure or quantify health care processes, outcomes, patient perceptions, and organizational structure and/or systems”. They may also be called performance measures. The American Academy of Family Physicians’ (AAFP) policy states the primary purpose of performance measurement should be to identify opportunities to improve patient care. View our full list of criteria of a performance measure. Measures inform us about how the health care system is performing. Measures help identify weaknesses, prioritize opportunities, and can be used to identify what works and doesn’t work to drive improvement. Measures can also prevent the overuse, underuse, and misuse of health care services and can identify disparities in care delivery and outcomes. Measures are used for quality improvement, benchmarking, and accountability. Measures are becoming increasingly important relative to payment as the U.S. health care system shifts away from traditional fee-for-service toward payment focused on the value of care.
