Information for Health Plans and Disease Management Companies

Health plans and disease management firms appreciate the high-quality, cost-effective care that SCCMS enables them to provide.

The SCCMS provides systemic enhancement of care that is also cost effective and readily implemented. They benefit from strategies built into the SCCMS that significantly reduce unnecessary ER visits and hospitalizations, contributing to an overall reduction in the costs of healthcare. SCCMS is scalable to the needs of large healthcare providers such as Kaiser Permanente that elect to bring the SCCMS in-house by training and supervising their own nurse care managers.

Moreover, built into the SCCMS are measurement parameters that permit demonstration not only of the cost-effectiveness of SCCMS, but also the specific level of satisfaction with SCCMS among patients and among physicians, providing valuable ongoing feedback.
