Proactively Managing Risk via Innovations in Last Mile Care

With 60% of American adults living with a chronic disease, population-wide risk stratification has never been more important to health plans. But multiple barriers prevent members from doing the tests that allow for early detection of disease and preventive treatment. Thanks to new innovative technologies, plans can now reach at-risk members in their homes, where they can test comfortably and conveniently.

Hear our panel of experts discuss how top health plans are improving risk assessment and quality measures through at-home testing.

Topics include:

  • Strategies for deploying novel solutions to drive member engagement and reduce costs for members, especially among traditionally unengaged populations
  • Why removing barriers to testing with at-home solutions is a boon to health equity
  • How accurate staging improves health outcomes for members with chronic conditions
  • Working with provider networks for better management of members’ health
