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.

Our new insight brief to explores the components of a comprehensive strategy to tackle all three of these challenges without alienating providers.
