Transform the future
Enable proactive care management.
Optum™ has innovative strategies, tools and the expertise to help you implement your own approach to population health and enable the proactive care management that can improve your outcomes and curb costs.
Distributing risk to appropriately align incentives enables high quality, efficient, patient-centered care — the heart of integrated, accountable health care systems. Once the roadmap, infrastructure and analytics are in place, organizations are able to improve population health, enhance financial performance and improve quality, ultimately increasing consumer's satisfaction with the health system.
Health care organizations in the final stages of transformation are most likely to outsource as they have developed a clear sense of what they can and cannot do themselves. With 20/20 hindsight, transforming health systems appreciate the scrupulous planning and foundational activities that helped them safely evolve.
