CPR is bringing together a group of purchasers to share the programs they’ve implemented and strategize ways to boost member utilization to maximize the impact of their programs.
A high-value program is any program designed to enhance a purchaser’s benefit offering, either through an existing health plan, TPA, or other vendor. While not an exhaustive list, some examples include:
We’ve heard from purchasers that it’s a challenge to get members to use these programs. As health care providers continue to consolidate and amass market power, driving prices higher, utilization of these high-value programs is more important than ever.
Description: A collaborative is a small group of purchasers working together to tackle a health care purchasing challenge. Collaboratives are typically 6-12 months long. Participants have the opportunity to share their experiences and learnings with each other. Participants also benefit from the input of CPR staff and a subject matter expert.
Format: CPR will facilitate monthly virtual meetings with the group. Depending on the direction of the work, one in-person meeting may also be held during the collaborative.
Output: CPR will lead development of a suite of tools or resources to support member engagement in high-value programs, with some level of customization for each participant. Consistent with CPR’s mission, we will also create a general resource for our broader purchaser audience upon completion of the collaborative. Check out other collaborative outputs.
Participation Fee: To cover some of the costs associated with this effort, CPR requires a participation fee. There is a discounted rate for CPR members and other qualified purchasers.
