"In addition to successfully cutting healthcare costs, we were able to remove the complexity of the traditional healthcare system, eliminate long wait times and ensure the patient is given sufficient time and attention with the physician to address their health concerns holistically," said Jim Green, executive director of human resources for Lacks Enterprises.
Lacks contracts with CareATC - a healthcare company and manager of employer-sponsored clinics headquartered in Oklahoma - to manage day-to-day operations and create separation between them and their employees' healthcare. CareATC works with Priority Health, the local network provider, and TPA to facilitate care-outreach, specialty services and claims administration.
"Collectively, we are pioneering new methods of using data analytics and technology to improve health and prevent disease, and are continually learning new ways to work together for the benefit of Lacks employees and their dependents," said Simon Abbott, vice president, business development at CareATC.
In the first year, Lacks Primary Care Clinics:
- Provided primary care from board licensed physicians, lab and pharmaceutical services to Lacks' employees and dependents
- Scheduled 7,741 appointments
- Saw 52% of insured employees use the facilities at least once
- Engaged 1,522 patients in preventative personal health assessments, 41% returned to discuss results with a physician
- Diagnosed 2,607 chronic conditions among 680 patients
