Annual Cost of Cardiovascular Disease in the US$
In summer 2014, we had a 99% satisfaction rating among providers. Since program inception in 2009, our process has resulted in:
Providers submit procedure requests. If the treatment meets evidence-based criteria, it is automatically approved.
If the treatment falls outside of pre-set clinical guidelines, it is sent to nurse review.
HealthHelp nurses evaluate requests and provide approvals for treatments within clinical guidelines. For procedures that fall outside of these criteria, nurses will discuss an alternative care pathway.
If consensus is not reached, the request is sent for a peer-to-peer consultation.
A HealthHelp physician reviews the treatment. After consultation with the requesting provider, the procedure will either be changed, not performed, or agreement will not be reached.
