Evolve Direct Primary Care

Provides In-depth Quality Reporting

 

Reporting to Individual Patients

Each patient should know his/her own data and how those results compare to established quality thresholds.

Reporting to Purchasers

The purchaser should be informed of the de-identified aggregated quality results for common conditions such as hypertension, diabetes, asthma and other ambulatory-care sensitive conditions. Privacy should be protected by not aggregating conditions that exist only in small numbers.

Reporting at the Community Level

Clinical data should be reported to a health information exchange (HIE) to ensure that care both within and outside the purview of the primary care provider is appropriately analyzed and measures are reported based on all available data. Reporting at the HIE level permits greater coordination of care and decreased unnecessary duplication if the DPC provider does not share a common electronic health record with providers of specialty and ancillary care.

Frequently Asked Questions for Employers

Is this similar to an on-site or near-site clinic?

Evolve Medical Clinics can be installed within your facility, depending on your employee base. For employers any size, Evolve acts as the equivalent of a near-site clinic.

What is the advantage of Evolve over a Telemedicine benefit offering?

Telemedicine can handle up to 85% of routine urgent care. For those 15%, they are told to find an urgent care and start over–which employees find very frustrating. With Evolve, we can see your employee to follow up the virtual visit with any necessary testing–they will not need to start over. Further, telemedicine plans do not offer routine primary care via virtual visit–Evolve does.

Are family members eligible?

Yes. Spouses, domestic partners and other family members are welcomed. Children ages 6-25 years of age receive a free membership with each parent enrolled.

Is Evolve DPC an insurance plan?

No. We work directly with our patients to provide primary and preventive care services. We do not provide specialist, hospital or emergency care, but can refer patients to providers within their plan network.

Does Evolve DPC pair with insurance plans?

Yes. We can vertically integrate with your current benefits packages. Most employers can expect to save 10-40% on their insurance premiums once Evolve is incorporated into their benefits plan.

Do you work with insurance brokers?

Evolve has the area’s top insurance architects/brokers available to help you build a benefit offering that saves money and offers your employees a significant perk. Evolve is also happy to work directly with your broker.

How do you help save the employer and the employees financially?

Our model of care, Direct Primary Care (DPC) has been proven to dramatically lower healthcare utilization by decreasing ER visits, nearly eliminating urgent care visits, lowering referrals for Radiology and Specialists and decreased surgery and hospitalizations.

Can you help our employees lower their prescription costs?

We act as advocates and actively search out not only the least expensive prescription but also the least expensive pharmacy. We even take that a step further and find your employees substantial discounts which can dramatically lower medication costs.

Employees often don’t want to change their Primary Care provider. Do they have to?

Your employees can use Evolve for urgent care or routine prescriptions. Our experience is that after one or two visits within a clean, spa-like facility, no waiting, easy same-day appointments and our compassionate, attentive providers who communicate clearly with patients, they electively switch their primary care to us 85% of the time.

Is Specialty care outside of Evolve Direct covered?

When patients’ health care needs extend beyond the scope of primary care or urgent care, our clinicians will work with outside specialists, pharmacies and hospitals to coordinate care. We work to provide referrals to the top area specialists within your planned network.

How does Evolve handle labs?

Evolve will draw your employee’s labs at the time of their visit. Or they can return anytime, without an appointment, to have their labs drawn, free of charge.  Evolve is able to extend a very substantially reduced fee for lab services. For instances, a “CBC” or complete blood count, is only $6. Complete blood chemistry analysis is $8. Urine analysis is free and included. 

What about radiology services?

Evolve Medical has worked out discounts at a number of major radiology service providers. Referrals can be either through your employees’ insurance plan or an Employer (or employee) may opt to obtain radiology services through Evolve’s discounted plan. For exam, an MRI normally priced $1,000 is available for only $400, thereby helping reduce pre-deductible spend and/or total healthcare spend for employers. 

When does open enrollment begin?

Evolve accepts new patients 365 days per year.

Looking for additional resources on Value-Based Primary Care (DPC)?

Atul Gawande

Atul Gawande, MD published The Hot Spotters in The New Yorker in 2011. He showcased the ability of a redesigned direct primary care practice to radically improve the care of chronically ill persons in a casino worker’s union in Atlantic City. They focused on the very small percentage of employees and dependents that drive a large portion of the cost by developing a special facility to handle the unique needs of these individuals.

American Academy

American Academy of Family Physicians offers guidance and a toolkit for physicians interested in transforming practices to DPC and explains the distinction between DPC and concierge practice.

Other non-DPC Value-Based Primary Care Resources

Patient-Centered Primary Care

Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative is a “not-for-profit membership organization dedicated to advancing an effective and efficient health system built on a strong foundation of primary care and the patient-centered medical home.”

Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative

Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative is a four year “multi-payer initiative created by the Centers for Medicare & medicaid Innovation to reform and reinvigorate primary care by enhancing population health management and other key elements. It’s a cooperative between governmental and private payers. In its third year, CPC is already reducing costs and improving quality. Purchasers should examine what’s working well in this model.

Better health starts with
better primary care.

EVOLVE

“Smart CEOs of companies are recognizing that there’s no insurance-based, insurance-centric solution for their healthcare problem,” Blanchard says. “Their problem is they’re footing the bill, in large part, for health care for their employees, but they have no control over its quality or delivery.”
DPC for County Employees in North Carolina studied: “In the first year, 44 percent of the county’s employees went with DPC—and to good effect, according to an analysis by the John Locke Foundation, a North Carolina research organization. As a group, the employees who used DPC incurred 23 percent less in medical expenses and 36 percent less in prescription expenses than their peers in the traditional health plan.”

“Paired with a reference-based pricing health plan for catastrophic care, the employer will gain control of their healthcare spend and improve the quality of care for employees.
