Question / Intervention Goal / Objectives 

The Eden Health Primary Care Platform offers employees greater access to primary care, using near site clinics, pop-up worksite clinics, as well as virtual visits.   One goal of the program is to reduce the use of specialists, and in turn, reduce expenses for care.  


Method/ Calculation 

Their calculation is the proportion of patients whose visit resulted in a referral to a specialist.  


Findings / Metric/ Outcome/ Savings 

Of 1,205 patients who had an office visit in a 12-month period, 145 (12.03%) were referred to a specialist.  Eden’s rate for specialist referral is significantly lower than a national benchmark of 33% of patients.  



No adjustments were made to reflect characteristics of Eden’s population, which may vary from the population used for the benchmark.
