Through a true utilization management model, health insurance providers can provide their members with quality through the continuum of care while reducing eye health-related costs.
Through this webinar, Versant Health demonstrates how eye exams identify eye and other high-cost health conditions, such as diabetes and hypertension. In addition to highlighting how eye health is a critical component of overall health, the sharing of information between health plans and managed health providers is vital to support your population health strategy quality initiative.
At the conclusion of this presentation, you will have a better understanding of the following:
- Conditions that can be diagnosed through a routine eye exam
- The impact that undiagnosed conditions, like diabetes, have on the healthcare ecosystem and economy
- The value of a true utilization management program
