Looking for a plan that provides great health care and keeps costs down? Meet the Vanderbilt Health Affiliated Network.
Health care costs are skyrocketing. To keep costs down over the long term, you need more than just affordable health care coverage. You need coverage that also gives your employees convenient access to personalized, high-quality care that helps them stay healthy.
Our network is at the forefront of health care transformation, providing the incentives, structure, and knowledge that can offer significant, sustainable cost control to employers. We offer broad access to high quality hospitals and physicians driven to support the long-term health of the network’s members. And we do so at rates that give significant, sustainable cost savings to you.
We also have a robust pediatric program unlike any other, thanks to the participation of Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt and more than 300 physicians trained in every pediatric specialty. Patients using our network have access to specialists who can treat and help prevent health issues ranging from colds and broken bones to the most complex and rare childhood diseases. Our pediatric program has demonstrated savings 3 years in a row, and delivered savings at 17% below market trend in 2014.
How does it work?
We’ve brought the right partners to the table, working together to provide broad, high-value health care. Our approach consists of three main components:
- Coordination: Through our Health Information Exchange, doctors and hospitals can share patient data seamlessly and securely. That allows providers to have a more comprehensive view of your employees’ health, enabling accurate diagnoses and reducing wasteful medical spending.
- Incentives: Participating providers are rewarded when they improve the health of their patients and communities while also improving the experience and efficiency of care. In short, doctors and hospitals are rewarded, in part, for keeping your employees healthy, rather than for billing for unnecessary services.
- Personalized Care: We offer clinical support services, such as Care Coordinators, who reach out to high-risk and hospitalized patients to ensure they stay as healthy as possible.
Our approach to health care is working for more than 70 employers and more than 100,000 employees throughout Tennessee and surrounding states.
