CedarBridge Assists Intel with Employer-Led Accountable Care Model that Demonstrates Impressive Results
Intel Corporation, with support from Portland Oregon-based consulting firm CedarBridge Group, has shown that an employer can leverage its purchasing power to create a better experience of care for employees and their families, with high quality healthcare services that cost substantially less than comparable national health plans. The Connected Care value-based healthcare offering, an option for Intel employees in five regions of the United States, now has multi-year data that demonstrates success in achieving the healthcare triple aim: improved quality of care, increased patient satisfaction, and lower costs of healthcare services for employers and employees alike.
The recently published white paper from Intel on Connected Care is the third of a series on Intel’s most ambitious employee healthcare initiative. The paper explains Intel’s success implementing an employer-sponsored accountable care model in four states (five regions) where the company’ largest employee populations live and work— New Mexico, Oregon, Arizona and in two regions of California, and detail a case study on one of the delivery systems contracted to offer Connected Care health services. Data from Oregon shows that employees and their families are experiencing demonstrably better health outcomes with a 94% employee retention rate in the program. Intel’s Connected Care is also proving more cost efficient than traditional plans, translating to average savings of 17% per member per month, totaling $1.8 million in savings per month, for the healthcare provided to employees and dependents in Oregon alone.
