Neurological Center of Excellence Delivers Better Outcomes for Patients

As healthcare costs for employers rise, businesses are grappling with how to navigate benefits plans to increase the quality of care for their employees and contain costs. A health system in the Mid-South is addressing these concerns by transitioning to a value-based approach through bundled payments and a Center of Excellence (COE) program. By bringing regional businesses, payers and providers together, this health system has improved the quality of care and significantly lowered out-of-pocket costs for some of the most common and costly brain and spine issues.

Back pain results in 83 million lost workdays each year with spinal issues on the rise and that’s just one of the neurological issues that affect millions of Americans. In addition, employers are suffering with higher benefits costs and employees are often left with fragmented, costly benefits plans. A leading health system in the midsouth embarked on a value-based care plan, through its brain and spine program, that has relieved these mounting pressures for employers and employees throughout the mid-south region.

Operated by Cedar Gate’s Managed and Consulting services, the COE program brings high-quality neurological care to employees in the mid-south while containing costs for employers through bundled, transparent pricing and delivering care in the appropriate settings.
