Providence Health Plans

US Preventive Medicine (USPM) is the first and as of now only wellness company to achieve a sustained and significant reduction in wellness-sensitive medical events (asthma, cardiac events, COPD, congestive heart failure and diabetes) across that portion of its entire book of business for which comprehensive claims data was available (see chart below). The reduction achieved by USPM significantly outpaced the much smaller national decline in these events, as evidenced by both the database maintained by the Disease Management Purchasing Consortium (through 2014) and the federal Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project (HCUP) database (through 2013). USPM is further the only wellness company willing to contractually commit to being measured on this metric in future contracts. This makes USPM the only wellness company to measure validly, achieve significant event reduction when measured validly, and offer valid contractual metrics.
