Is your Medicare plan thriving in today’s value-based economy? Here’s what you need to know.

The health care industry is changing. As value-based payment models are increasingly adopted, quality and member satisfaction have become central to plan success.



So how can plans keep pace—exceeding member expectations and maximizing plan performance? With the rise of consumerism and today’s value-based economy, intelligent consumer engagement has emerged as the cornerstone solution.


Because, when members are engaged with their health—attending recommended care visits, maintaining healthy habits—everyone wins. Members are healthier, plans see gains in quality ratings and brand perception (as well as revenue), and the whole system runs more effectively and efficiently.


Ready to learn more about how your plan can win at value-based performance? Get the latest strategies from our presentation at the 3rd Annual Medicare Star Ratings & Quality Assurance Summit, led by NovuHealth Client Executive Kara Ellinger.


In it, we delve into the new economics of Medicare (the MLR, QIE, and the latest policy) and reveal how health plans can improve quality, satisfaction and growth by flipping traditional consumer loyalty strategies on their heads.
