Healthcare Providers in Arizona, Colorado and Nevada See New Coordination Systems Improving Care for Patients

West Health Plan Analysis Now Available from HealthLeaders-InterStudy

NASHVILLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- HealthLeaders-InterStudy, a leading provider of managed care market intelligence, reports that health plans in the West (Arizona, Colorado and Nevada) have seen greater development of care coordination systems that lead to improved patient care. According to the recent West Health Plan Analysis, increased technology use and dedicated staff have helped care coordination emerge as a driver of better health outcomes and reduced costs.

More providers and insurers will invest money in care coordination and technology to improve treatment compliance. The increased use of electronic medical records gives providers the ability to manage patient populations more effectively and has given rise to more care coordinators at the primary-care level, according to the report.

“Care coordination teams and nurses will have expanding roles as part of the provider system,” says Bill Melville, market analyst with HealthLeaders-InterStudy. “Physicians will have the ultimate say, but the coordinators will be responsible for patient interaction and ensuring compliance with treatment plans.”

Other topics highlighted in the recent West Health Plan Analysis include:

  • Enrollment growth for key health plans including: Kaiser Permanente and UnitedHealthcare
  • Money-saving changes the states are making to their managed Medicaid programs
  • An update of the Managed Medicare Market for all three states
  • Updates on healthcare legislation in Arizona, Colorado and Nevada
