The extent of control most healthcare providers have had over their working environments and their degrees of autonomy has been severely impacted since the introduction of managed care, rising costs, lower reimbursements, and the conglomeration of various entities in the healthcare industry. In prior years, providers routinely developed very individualistic, independent styles of practicing medicine. These practice methods contrast significantly with those that are necessary to practice within the healthcare delivery system. Conforming to new rules and working in foreign environments are difficult adjustments for providers to make and require them to be flexible and adopt a new outlook on the delivery of health care.
In response to these market forces, we are creating a new healthcare delivery model that integrates providers, employers, and other payers. The Aplos model is based on three principles:
(1) High-Performance Networks that are provider & employer partnerships, clinically integrated care and collectively accountable for the entire continuum of care, the overall costs, quality of care and the health of all employees/members in the populations we serve;
(2) provider payment models that reward quality and slow spending growth while avoiding excessive new financial risk for all stakeholders; and
(3) reliable performance measurement and business intelligence to support improvement and provide employer confidence that lower costs and results in better health outcomes.
The APLOS High-Performance Provider Network is an efficient model that integrates Employers, Employees, Providers and Care Teams with high performance, high quality outcomes and cost savings initiatives. Each Network meet’s ERISA/URAC the network adequacy requirements (primary care, specialist, outpatient, inpatient hospital, surgical and ancillary providers). We manage the provider performance, quality outcomes and medical cost management for our Employer customers.
We Clinically Integrate all Providers and Care Teams which reduces total medical cost and lowers utilization and duplication. Our sister company Aspire Integrated Healthcare Solutions offers the iConnect Health Information Exchange (HIE), the infrastructure to enable seamless connectivity of patient health information across the care delivery network (physicians, hospitals, ancillary services, skilled nursing facilities, and payers), optimizing operational efficiency.
Our partner Aspire Integrated Healthcare Solutions provides the most advanced and leading Technology firms that provide technology solutions that integrates healthcare, and provides data and advanced healthcare analytics that turns data into actionable information at the point-of-care, which is accessible with an internet connection from any device! Results are prompt, appropriate and lower cost population health management.
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.
At the heart of patient-centric approach to managing population health, the Aplos patient portal empowers the patient to take charge of their health with a variety of interactive and supportive tools. These bi-directional communication tools are designed to comprehensively engage patients with their physicians and care providers using secure anywhere, anytime access, resulting in significantly improved outcomes.
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.
By increasing access to physicians and specialists, Telehealth can help ensure that Employee's receive the right care, at the right place, at the right time. The total cost reduction is a result of decreasing unnecessary ER visits, physician visits and lowering hospital readmissions and lost work days.
