Public Health and the New Health Plans

By Gov CIO Outlook | Friday, March 15, 2019

The transition from profit-centric to be a developed and recognized wellness institution, the health industry has come a long way; healthcare centers have strived hard to improve their clinical performance to a much greater extent than ever before. The healthcare companies are revolutionizing the healthcare domain again by addressing significant issues such as cholesterol levels, diabetes, asthma, and also the nutritional needs of the elderly with the use of health plans.

These health plans are aimed at improving public health to enhance clinical performance and quality ratings. They are helping people to become healthier and prevent the onset of any sickness or disease. These plans rely on the presence of robust public health infrastructure and the core activities of federal, state, and local government assistance; health plans can be best implemented with combined efforts. Working on and promoting wellness is a win-win for both the healthcare centers and patients.

Health plans focus on core operations- which includes management of benefits, restrictive networks of providers, and in some instances the denials of claims. Although the plans aim at wellness and it must be regulated and improved regularly. Let us get down to the basics and analyze how these plans will improve public health. First, one must ensure that the public programs are centered in driving quality-based payments. Second, one must allow their plans to deliver social services and supports as a part of their core offerings and also ensure that they are compensated appropriately for their services. Third, one needs to measure the most critical outcomes for their patients and pay for them explicitly. 

Interest in providing wellness is quickly becoming the next major revolution in the health care industry. As the policy makers’ are relentlessly driven towards improving health outcomes and reducing spending growth, plans have significantly more flexibility to care of their beneficiaries in new and advanced ways. Health plans are now partners to government and the public in achieving the desired health outcomes, and they are focused to follow this increasingly in the future.
