Edison Healthcare and Proactive MD have entered into an exclusive partnership that offers employers access to the highest levels of customized, compassionate, and evidence-based healthcare services at no cost to the patient and at reduced case rates for employers.
In general, 6% of a company's health plan members spend 80% of plan dollars, and of that patient population, research shows that 20% of patients are misdiagnosed and 40% have wrong or sub-optimal treatment plans. With healthcare costs continuing to soar across communities throughout the country, the expertise of this new partnership provides patients and employers the solution they need to address these costly healthcare concerns.
Edison Healthcare and Proactive MD have joined forces, creating a healthcare delivery solution intimately focused on the unique healthcare needs of each patient across the full continuum of care. Beginning with a comprehensive primary care relationship with a Proactive MD provider, and progressing through the coordination and delivery of specialized care received at an Edison Healthcare Smart Care facility, employers can now leverage the strength of this partnership to reduce their overall healthcare spend, improve care integrity, and deliver healthcare solutions customized to the individual needs of their employees.
"Our approach to serving patients includes not only the personal relationship between our physician and the patient, but also all aspects of providing care within the healthcare environment. We work tirelessly to guide our patients through the complex healthcare system," said John Collier, President and CEO of Proactive MD. "And for our patients who are facing the prospect of a major surgery, there is absolutely no one better than Edison Healthcare to provide the expertise, support, and specialized care to our patients during their time of need. Tom and his team have built an incredible solution that brings the innovative advancements in treatment that our patients and employers deserve, resulting in better clinical and financial outcomes."
"Like Edison Healthcare, Proactive MD gives employees access to excellent, affordable healthcare while reducing healthcare costs for employers," said Tom Emerick, President and CEO of Edison Healthcare. "Proactive MD's commitment to strengthening the relationship between patient and primary care physician and guiding patients through the care continuum is a unique complement to how Edison Healthcare serves patients facing complex diagnoses or major surgeries. Through this partnership, even more Americans will have access to the best healthcare in an affordable way."
Edison Healthcare and Proactive MD share a common, deeply held belief that there is always opportunity to innovate, advance, and improve the health of our communities. This partnership represents a bold step forward in that direction, and as the two teams continue to work together, the clients and patients of both companies will enjoy the benefits of this exclusive partnership.
