USI’s Population Health Management Services Saves Client $1.1 million Over 3 Years and Improves Employee Health
USI’s Population Health Management team identified above average disease prevalence, gaps in care primarily in diabetes management, and higher than normal emergency room visits and in-patient hospitalizations among the health plan members of a West Coast-based ethnic food distributor with 600 employees and 1400 members on the plan. By implementing USI’s proposed CORE HEALTH strategy, the company experienced a 62% increase in preventive visits, which are vital to identifying potential high-cost claims. Also, emergency room visits dropped 40% due to increased primary care visits. Diabetes management compliance increased resulting in a savings for chronic disease management of approximately $145K to the self-funded plan. Consequently, average renewal increases for the company dropped to less than 5% in the past 3 years, from more than 10% in the preceding 2 years, resulting in an approximate savings of more than $1.1 million.
