What combining connected navigation with APC means for care teams and their patients

What combining connected navigation with APC means for care teams and their patients
author Cheridan Bryant

If you are considering applying for a position as part of an apree health care team, you might wonder what the combination of connected navigation and advanced primary care will mean for your work and your patients.

As we continue to focus on transforming patient experiences, health, and well-being, here’s what you can expect to see:

Encouragement of deeper levels of patient engagement

apree health providers are trained in empathetic listening. This training, alongside longer appointment times and supportive and welcoming care center environments, empowers patients to engage with their own health journeys.

Our navigation technology also emphasizes personalization, preventing patients from feeling like mere numbers within a system — further empowering them to be proactive with their health. And integrated tools, such as self-reported goals and health assessment, offer yet another avenue to increase engagement.

Convenience removing barriers to care

Convenience plays a major role in patient health and behavior. It’s one of the reasons we integrate virtual care into advanced primary care, and it’s why our care center networks offer patients a medical home where they can receive 80-90% of the care they need.

Digital navigation extends that convenience even further by providing patients with access to comprehensive benefit information in one location, easing the burden of decision-making. Providers and patients also have easy access to:

  • Detailed health records
  • Tools like automated reminders
  • Health milestones
  • Scheduling

Healthcare tailored to individuals with personalization

We are able to achieve an extraordinary level of personalization by gathering deep troves of data. Not only is this data utilized throughout our digital platform, but our care teams also have access to it, enabling them to create personalized care plans for patients.

When combined with the strong patient-provider relationships that are key to the advanced primary care model, teams can build a comprehensive understanding of each individual’s unique health history and needs.

Prevention is what improves outcomes

One of the reasons APC is so effective at improving health outcomes and reducing total cost of care is because prevention is thoroughly integrated into the model. Concerns are treated before they become major issues, and access to screenings and behavioral support contribute to these improved outcomes. 

With our connected navigation, employees are further encouraged and incentivized to partake in preventive activities that contribute to their health and well-being.

The future of healthcare has arrived

We’re proud to be enriching the quality of care patients receive and enhancing their healthcare experiences in both the physical and digital realms. And we remain committed to revolutionizing the healthcare industry by focusing on the needs of patients and ensuring care teams are supported in their mission to improve patient health outcomes.
