The traditional care model is failing, yet costs continue to climb. Health policy research group KFF found that in the last 10 years, the average cost of healthcare premiums has gone up more than 40%. There’s a better way. 

Your workforce deserves personalized, comprehensive benefits that promote well-being at all levels. Advanced Primary Care focuses on preventive measures, early intervention strategies, and care tailored to individual workforces based on collective needs. 

If you’re looking for a viable, effective solution to enhance your healthcare benefits, reduce your total cost of care, and improve health outcomes, Advanced Primary Care is a transformative approach that offers benefits to both employees and organizations. 

The changing face of healthcare

Healthcare has undergone a major transformation over the last decade. The healthcare sector is experiencing dynamic industry shifts, characterized by escalating costs, a pressing demand for personalized care solutions, and a pronounced pivot towards tailored healthcare services amidst a backdrop of rising chronic illnesses and their associated management challenges. According to the CDC, 6 in 10 adults have at least one chronic disease, and 4 out of 10 have 2 or more conditions. This shift in landscape calls for an advanced approach to care, because the existing model is falling short. 

What is Advanced Primary Care?

Advanced Primary Care is a bold, game-changing approach to health care. It’s an all-encompassing model that puts patients first, focusing heavily on individual attention, preventive measures, proactive management of chronic conditions, early intervention strategies, and personalized treatment plans based on individual needs and predictive analytics.

The beauty of Advanced Primary Care lies in its unique ability to deal with more than just symptoms alone – it seeks the root causes of illnesses. It also promotes healthier living by empowering people to control their wellness journey.

The compelling case for adding Advanced Primary Care - 8 reasons why you should consider it

Adding Advanced Primary Care to your existing benefits package is a game-changer on multiple levels. And while change can be daunting, we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

1. Improved employee health and well-being

Research shows access to preventive care improves health outcomes. Advanced Primary Care promotes early intervention and preventive care to improve employee well-being.  

2. Cost savings

In addition to promoting better health, Advanced Primary Care also leads to significant cost savings year-over-year. Not only are savings realized through reduced total cost of care, but healthier employees take fewer sick days, which saves your bottom line in lost productivity costs.

3. Enhanced employee engagement

Investing in Advanced Primary Care shows your commitment to employee wellness, which can lead to increased engagement at work, greater loyalty, and, in turn, happier employees who are less likely to turnover. Additionally, access to data and advanced analytics help drive decisions about the “right” types of care your population needs most, so employees are more likely to use Advanced Primary Care, meaning higher user and plan engagement for better ROI.

4. Productivity gains

Not only does Advanced Primary Care increase engagement, but it can also lead to higher rates of productivity and improved job satisfaction. Easy and convenient access to health care at onsite or nearsite centers or through virtual channels means less downtime due to illness, and studies show that healthier employees are more productive at work. This makes Advanced Primary Care an investment that pays off in real-world gains.

5. Attracting top talent

Comprehensive benefits like Advanced Primary Care make you more attractive as an employer. Top talent always looks for companies that offer stellar benefits with innovative solutions. 

6. Corporate reputation

Investing in employee health enhances brand reputation and company image in the eyes of employers, clients, customers, and even investors. When you’re known as a company that cares, your corporate responsibility profile stands out in your industry. 

7. Adaptability

Being adaptable is crucial in this fast-paced corporate landscape of evolving trends, new demands, and constantly changing expectations. Adopting a forward-thinking approach to care – like Advanced Primary Care – positions you as an industry leader rather than a follower.
