One App Can Change Everything

Using an advanced ROI methodology, led by Dr. Niteesh Choudhry, a Harvard Researcher and Physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, has found an average savings of $472 per visit.

Improved Consumption

According to Peterson-Kaiser, after analyzing 20 million people, only just 0.51% of enrollees had a telemedicine outpatient visit. Less than one percent. HelixMD will provide unparalleled tele-health engagement surpassing 80% engagement. 

Absolute Awareness

Return on tele-health investment is nearly impossible without incredible communication and employee awareness. Great services are obsolete in the presence of poor adoption rates. Our proprietary communication engine will engage employees at the perfect times.

Knowledge

Employees make benefit decisions based on the well-being of themselves and their families. Those decisions are nurtured through education. When employees understand the value of a benefit and can easily access it, they engage and spread the word.

"The Health Research Institute projects 2018's medical cost trend to be 6.5%—the first uptick in growth in three years."

PWC | United States

A 6 to 7 percent increase is the "new normal" for corporate year-over-year healthcare increases. This new normal, while growing "slower", is not sustainable. 

The model to curb healthcare expenditure is currently focused on the employee-cost-sharing-model: passing the buck. While this may decrease utilization growth, employee frustration is also becoming the new normal. quickly. This model is also unsustainable. Employees and employers can only contribute so much until the pump runs dry.

Innovative approaches to provide the intersection of cost reduction and care improvement is needed more than ever. 

“A true benefit to an employee is something that they understand, see value in and actually utilize. HelixMD was built to not only provide user-friendly benefits, but to also bring knowledge and information for existing benefits to the forefront.”

Why Are Costs Rising?

While opinions are split, the following are likely culprits to record-setting healthcare costs:

  • Unregulated costs for healthcare specialists
  • Employee premium and deductible deliquencies
  • Deregulated pharmaceutical markets (expensive drugs)
  • Extreme medical and pharmaceutical research costs
  • Regional pricing differences
  • Workforce aging

REDUCE ER AND HOSPITALIZATION

8 of 10 employees will pay more than $1,300 for medical care before their insurance will begin to cover expenses. This contribution increases significantly for family plans as a result of a 250% increase in employee deductibles according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. As employees choose lower premium plans, their out-of-pocket expenses rise sharply.

By diverting non-emergent issues to telemedicine care, the employee saves enormous of out-of-pocket expenses while the claim is completely eliminated for the self-funded employer. Fully-funded employers also experience savings through the direct result of decreased claim occurrences.

AVOID THE WAITING ROOM

Avoiding the waiting room has more benefits than employee medical costs, it also eliminates further illnesses. A study published in the journal Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology analyzed 84,595 families who participated in the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Medical Expenditure Panel Survey between 1996 and 2008 and found a dramatic rise in flu-like symptoms up to two weeks after a doctor’s appointment. Not only does this extend illness, but it also impacts employee productivity.

PREEMPTIVE DISEASE MANAGEMENT

According to the American Telemedicine Association, Telemedicine has been shown to reduce medical costs through the increased treatment efficiency of chronic diseases. Currently, 8 million people have untreated diabetes, 79 million people are showing signs of pre-diabetes, 12 million undiagnosed COPD patients, and an untold number of undiagnosed heart disease.

Making medical care easier to access can mitigate diseases before they begin or assist in managing the progression of the disease. Prevention improves outcomes, makes for healthier employees, and does so at a reasonable cost.

ABSENTEEISM

1/3 of an employee’s cost will cover company overhead, 1/3 pays for company growth and profit, 1/3 will cover their hourly rate. At this rate, an employee paid $25 per hour will cost the company $600 for day of work missed from illness. Improving the speed of healthcare can drastically cut down on time missed by employees. And, employees save the time-off they have earned for fun and relaxation, instead of illness—which is wellness at it’s most enjoyable.

SAVED TIME

UC Davis, a pioneer in employee telemedicine offerings, recently analyzed it’s own clinical records spanning back 18 years found that it’s employees avoided over 5 million miles of travel distance to and from clinical appointments and consultations. $3 million dollars in travel costs were also saved during the same period of time. More than transportation time-saved, greenhouse emissions were also greatly avoided—it’s a win-win.

UNCOMPROMISED QUALITY OF CARE

93 Randomized Controlled Trials Proves Telemedicine Efficacy

In 2015, an 11,000 member collaborative effort led by Cochrane evaluated robust clinical evidence in medical practice regarding the effectiveness, acceptability, and costs of interactive telemedicine. They conducted a comparative analysis between telemedicine and conventional face-to-face care by analyzing 93 randomized controlled trials via meta-analysis. The results of the study indicated the use of telemedicine was found to either lead to similar outcomes as face-to-face visits or lead to even better outcomes.
