Prevent/Delay Type 2 Diabetes
Need a proven solution for employee weight management that prevents/delays type 2 diabetes? Through employer peer roundtables, webinars, 1:1 assistance, and access to a no-cost pilot program, HCTN , collaborating with the Tennessee Department of Health, supports employers throughout the process of evaluating and implementing the National Diabetes Prevention Program.
Reduce Domino Effect of Hypertension
Effective hypertension management saves lives, dollars and increases productivity by reducing strokes, coronary heart disease, heart failure, kidney disease, and vision loss. With our partners at the Tennessee Department of Health, we provide participating employers assistance in benefit design, medication management, vendor evaluation, and access to a no-cost hypertension management solution pilot.
Focus on Hidden Cost Drivers
Because the WHO estimates that 30-55% of health outcomes are driven by non-medical social determinants of health (SDoH) and the link between SDoH and the onset and progression of chronic conditions is clear, we are working with the Tennessee Department of Health and employers to understand the impact of SDoH on their workforce health and integrate SDoH and claims to identify utilization patterns and remove barriers so that all employees fully experience their health benefits.
Manage High Cost Claims
Advances in medical technology, including cell and gene therapies, along with ACA requirements that remove annual and lifetime maximums, have driven an increase in both the number of claimants exceeding traditional thresholds, and the amount spent for average high cost cases. HCTN, our national association (the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions), and our leading employers are focused on developing a framework for understanding, preventing, and addressing, high cost claims.
Engage on Pharmacy Benefit Management
Pharmacy benefits have continued to operate in a convoluted market, rife with disincentives, little to no transparency, and are further complicated by consolidation. As specialty pharmacy continues to drive drug spend at both medical and pharmacy, employers are motivated to find alternatives to the status quo. HCTN introduces innovative strategies, practices and players with a goal of strengthening our employer member’s understanding as they engage the market.
Get Timely, Effective Behavioral Health Care
To get timely, effective behavioral health care for your employees requires improved network adequacy; integrated behavioral health and primary care; tele-behavioral health; and clinical metrics to track patient improvement. Only through the collective voice of employers, powered by HCTN, can these structural, market changes occur. Join our work with employers, providers and health plans as part of the national Path Forward for Mental Health and Substance Use initiative.
