NASHVILLE, Tenn., June 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Healthcare Bluebook (Bluebook), an industry leader in guiding patients to high-quality affordable care using objective cost and quality data, today announced its latest innovative product offering, Bluebook CareConnectSM In-Network Navigation.
Using historical data, Bluebook has identified a select group of complex, high-cost procedures that present substantial cost savings opportunities for both employers and employees when care is received from providers that consistently deliver high-quality services at a Fair PriceSM.
Clients who implement Bluebook CareConnect provide enrolled members who need complex procedures with a member concierge who guides them through the numerous steps of identifying and scheduling care with high-value physicians and facilities in their insurance network. The concierge stays closely connected with the member throughout their care journey and coordinates all essential details, including appointment follow-up and medical records transfer.
"My member concierge found the right surgeon for my situation, which led to the right procedure for my circumstances, and negotiated a fair rate that freed me to focus on my surgery and recovery," according to a current Bluebook CareConnect member.
With this enhanced offering, Healthcare Bluebook continues to provide employers with a benefits solution that increases movement from low-value to high-value care, driving savings and rapid ROI, improved healthcare quality for enrolled members, and greater cost predictability.
