EdisonHealth is pleased to announce the validation of its ROI Estimator tool (Return on Investment) by the Care Innovations™ Validation Institute. The Care Innovations™ Validation Institute’s certificate of validation is like the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval for service providers in the healthcare industry. The Validation Institute only awards its certification to organizations that compete on the basis of integrity and proven performance with respect to their reported outcomes, contractual promises and other claims.
EdisonHealth provides members of contracting health plans with access to heart, valve, spine, orthopedic and transplant care at some of the highest-performing clinics and health systems in the United States. These EdisonHealth Network medical centers are committed to offering multidisciplinary, team-based approaches to patient evaluation and treatment – ensuring they receive high quality and appropriate care. By focusing on the limited, but growing number of patients with these high cost and often mistreated conditions, EdisonHealth is able to deliver tremendous value to these individuals and health plan sponsors.
The Validation Institute’s process applies accepted industry standards in outcomes analysis to determine if the statements or claims a company makes are true and precise. The Institute’s goal is to help organizations involved in population health – from health plans to employers to vendors of solutions to the industry – adhere to the highest standards of validity.
Al Lewis, co-author of Cracking Health Costs and an independent consultant, remarked: “This is an outstanding model, and kudos to the Validation Institute for highlighting a company that is able to put together such a useful tool.”
“We are pleased to work with the Validation Institute to validate our own work, and to help establish credible methods for others in the industry to use,” says Tom Emerick, Edisonhealth co-founder and one of Forbes’ 13 Unsung Heroes Changing Healthcare.
An employer or plan advisor may use EdisonHealth’s ROI Estimator tool to forecast the impact of EdisonHealth’s services on health plan costs and members. Other authorized professionals can also use the tool to develop impact estimates based upon EdisonHealth’s experiences and authoritative sources, or develop estimates based on their own assumptions and health claim experience.
EdisonHealth provides members of contracting health plans with access to heart, valve, spine, orthopedic and transplant care at some of the highest-performing clinics and health systems in the United States. The service is offered to organizations with 10,000 or more employees, as well as smaller groups through third party “aggregators.” Participating employers and health plans also receive a suite of care coordination, claims payment, performance reporting and related services.
