Tackling the Total Cost of Care
Nearly one third of adults are affected by heart disease and rely on their cardiologists for cost-effective, evidence-based cardiovascular care. Since 2002, New Century Health’s delegated-risk cardiology program has effectively supported payers in reining in costs and increasing care quality. We offer cardiologists point-of-care guidance and automatic pre-approvals that promote the use of evidence-based protocols, and value-based physician reimbursement models that align incentives to significantly reduce unnecessary diagnostics and preventable hospitalizations.
For nearly two decades, New Century Health has successfully managed cardiology under delegated risk models. But we’re not resting on our laurels—our team of physicians, nurses, pharmacists, data scientists and independent scientific advisory boards are constantly evaluating ways to improve the way we support cardiologists to drive better outcomes.
Through capitated risk agreements, New Century Health takes full clinical and financial accountability for cardiology spending so you can focus on tackling other health care challenges. Our clinical depth and scope enable us to manage the total cost of care through evidence-based clinical delivery for 98% of all cardiovascular care services, including many sub-specialties in clinical cardiology, cardiovascular interventions, electrophysiology and surgeries.
Dynamic Clinical Decision Support
Our point-of-care tool for physician practices incorporates the latest care guidelines and appropriate use criteria into a streamlined, user-friendly workflow that enables instant treatment authorization. Cardiologists rely on our clinical quality reporting for patient level scoring and practice pattern benchmarking.
