Intel Uses Purchasing Power to Spur Health IT Interoperability
Through its Connected Care model, Intel is using its purchasing power to accelerate health IT interoperability to benefit employees, their families, and the communities where they live and work. Intel offers its Connected Care health plans in five areas where it has a large employee population: Rio Rancho, New Mexico; Hillsboro, Oregon; Chandler, Arizona; Folsom, California; and Santa Clara, California. In Oregon, for example, the Connected Care saved Intel an average of $1.8 million per month in healthcare costs, compared to the costs for a similar population of employees with traditional health plan coverage. At each site, Intel has contracted with one or two large healthcare organizations, known as delivery system partners, to deliver healthcare to Connected Care members. At each Connected Care site, Intel has focused on enhancing the patient experience with patient-centered medical home models of care, enabled by secure, interoperable health IT to ensure that the right information about a member’s health is available to the right provider, so the right care is delivered at the right time; improving quality and outcomes for Connected Care members with accurate and complete information maintained in EHRs, including patient visit summaries, lab results, problem lists, specialty referrals, medications, allergies, immunizations, and care plans; and improving population health and healthcare quality through data analytics, using clinical, financial, and process-level data.  Intel reported more than 94 percent retention of employees selecting Connected Care plans for their 2018 healthcare services.
