For consumers, the shift from fee-for-service to value-based care has pushed them to shoulder more of the financial burden. In this new paradigm, consumers have become more discerning about the types of services to obtain, the providers they seek out, how personalized their interactions can become, where and how they access care and the details of their financial arrangements.

Through product diversification health plans are evolving well beyond their legacy roles to become true value-added partners. Virtual care delivery brings an entirely new way for health plans to “make good” on the promise of value by improving outcomes while containing costs. Today, comprehensive virtual care delivery, powered by data and analytics, addresses the full-spectrum of health care concerns, from everyday ailments to the most complex and costly conditions, all while enabling an engaging, patient-centric, simplified consumer experience.

Virtual care delivery helps health plans keep their promise to become true value-added partners within the health care delivery ecosystem.
