Lowering the total cost of care through quality initiatives

“When patients receive timely, high-quality care with a focus on prevention and care coordination, it results in better health outcomes and helps lower the total cost of care. Take disease management, for example, where prevention is paramount. Investing in optimum care today—through screenings, care management, patient engagement and education and more—helps omit suffering and prevent costly illnesses, complications or future chronic conditions.”

Our operations team interfaces with commercial payors on the front end to prevent denials from even occurring. We want to make sure the Sutter patient receives the right care at the right time in the right setting.”
