CASE STUDY: BCBS Impacts 10x More Care Gaps for Colorectal & Breast Cancer Screening with ReferWell’s Care Navigation & Scheduling
This study included:
- Scheduling colonoscopies and mammograms, and coordinating services such as provider communication and appointment reminders
- Recording members with previous care gap appointments for the plan
- Sending stool screening tests (FIT kits) to members’ homes
ReferWell care navigators called members and attempted to schedule them for a colonoscopy, mammogram or both and, if needed, offering to schedule appointments with a convenient, in-network provider while on the phone with the member. Just one month into the engagement, ReferWell far surpassed the goals set by the health plan. The following graphic shows ReferWell’s success compared to the metrics that the health plan selected as KPIs.
PRESS RELEASE: ReferWell and Decision Point Announce Joint Solution to Improve Access to Care
ReferWell, the digital health company focused on leveraging the referable moment to find and schedule patient care, and Decision Point, the leading member engagement predictive analytics company, have announced a strategic partnership to help health plans improve members’ access to care.
Decision Point’s unique data-driven targeting solution identifies health plan members that are the greatest source of opportunity for plans to influence Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers; Systems (CAHPS) scores. By activating the integration between ReferWell’s proprietary provider search and scheduling technology and their unique care concierge service with Decision Point’s robust member identification analytics, plans can drastically improve access to care.
Health plans taking advantage of Decision Point and ReferWell’s member experience integration are able to identify the most at-risk populations for access and then engage those members to schedule them for visits immediately. This provides a differentiator for plans working to solve for one of the hardest to move CAHPS measure sets, Access to Care.
