Core Services

  • Customized Care Model

    Equity Healthcare has partnered with Aetna and UnitedHealthcare to build dedicated custom care centers, staffed with Equity Healthcare–dedicated nurses and interdisciplinary clinicians, including medical directors, pharmacists, social workers, wellness coaches, and mental health professionals. Staffing ratios at Equity Healthcare centers exceed those of traditional off-the-shelf centers by several times.

  • Individualized Work Plan

    An annual work plan, based on each company’s unique claims experience, benefit design and healthcare programs, is developed by Equity Healthcare and executed by the customized care center. Quarterly reports show progress and an annual report, tailored to the company’s C-suite summarizes the performance and provides recommendations for enhancements to benefit designs, communications, and other programs to optimally lower costs.

  • Supplier and clinical oversight

    Equity Healthcare’s Chief Clinical Officer oversees the performance of the care centers through company-specific six sigma dashboards based on the annual individualized work plans. Two calls are conducted annually with each EH Member Company and clinical care center leadership to address any variance to the plan and to look for additional opportunities. EH Member Company-specific case reviews of high-cost claimants are conducted on an ongoing basis, as well as active participation in monthly care center Grand Rounds. The Chief Clinical Officer also conducts a yearly audit of each care center.

  • Webinar, Networking and Problem Solving

    Multiple webinars based on employer interest or EH innovations are conducted annually. In addition, the EH website (a secure virtual network) allows companies to access EH benchmarking data and a wealth of resources related to health care, innovations and Equity Healthcare. 

  • Annual Employer Summit

    Each year, Equity Healthcare hosts a free conference for its Member Companies focused on the latest trends and issues in healthcare. The Summit is an excellent opportunity for networking, and facilitates best practice sharing and strategic discussion.
