Illumina believes that integrated care is one of the best ways to address healthcare cost and quality challenges. It is a model that gives physicians and other healthcare providers incentives and tools to help people be healthy.
Putting a primary care physician in charge of a patient’s health plan provides someone who oversees and manages it with the health of the patient in mind, while also ensuring the right actions are taken by the right experts at the right time. Under integrated care, primary care doctors and their teams take responsibility for patients and coordinate their care with specialists, working to keep a comprehensive medical record for each patient.
Many of the doctors and other healthcare providers we work with are accountable for the health of the population they serve and the cost of treating those patients. When quality and efficiency measures are met, they are rewarded.
Keeping people healthy doesn’t just involve doctors, medications, care programs and technology. Part of Illumina’s mission is to make it easier for our customers to do what they need to do, too.
· Having physicians and specialists under one roof, providing patients transportation to and from, and filling prescriptions on the spot as well as offering home delivery.
· Mobile technology makes getting information and health supports easy.
· Rewards programs and one-on-one coaching supporting people in their journey to develop healthy habits.
· Illumina also offers exercise classes, nutrition classes, health-related activities and health information.
Chronic Care management at Illumina includes multi-disciplinary teams that connect people with chronic conditions to the resources and services they need. All our Care managers stay in touch by phone, while nurses and social workers visit face-to-face, and community health educators connect Illumina members with community and social services.
Some people stay in care management programs. Others are in for a short time—for example, when they transition from hospital to home. These programs are designed with the intent of making a difference in the overall quality of life of the patient.
