Employers and insurance payers are interested in reducing health care costs, maintaining high value and high quality care for their employees to keep them healthy, productive and on the job.
"By working closely with http://www.YourCity.MD, Employers Health Coalition brings a powerful health care search engine to its members' finger tips. Now finding a Patient-Centered Medical Home is just a click away," says Craig Osterhues, Health Care Executive & Employers Health Coalition Board Member.
Both employers and payers are hoping to encourage the employees to make great health care decisions by financially incenting them to change doctors. At the same time, they are financially incenting doctors to get credentialed and to practice using high quality and efficient measures which will help reduce the patients need to visit an emergency room or other such facility. Millions of employees will seek new doctors over the next year to take advantage of these financial programs and those doctors who get in front of this new wave of new patients will benefit.
The powerful search engines and new compare tools available on the YourCity.MD websites, along with their national .MD city platform were instrumental in the employer's decision to promote .MD sites to their employees. .MD is helping carry the ball for the employers as they continue to help develop new tools to effectively reduce health care costs and eliminate the need for the employers to wait for grants to continue these needed projects.
The project goes live today in the following .MD city sites and Northern Kentucky: Cincinnati.MD & Dayton.MD & NKY.MD. The other 500 city and 50 state .MD websites will go live over the next few months with PCMH data.
