Hello, this is Keith Algozzine with United Concierge Medicine and I’m excited to tell you about what we do and why people love it – in under three minutes. Let’s get started.
United Concierge Medicine’s Virtual ER brings the power of the emergency room to members. With their unique treat and triage approach, they ensure patients get the right care, at the right place, and the right time.
We have an ER Team made of emergency medicine physicians, PA’s, NP’s, and care coordinator’s all on staff 24/7/365 just like the real ER does. UCM is designed to be at the front of your plan design where we treat and or triage all patients and all illness and injuries, not just a select few conditions.
We also follow up with patients to track their recovery in order to manage both the cost and quality of care. The results speak for themselves; 98% case resolution, average savings of $430 for common illness consults, and over $2300 in average savings for serious illness or injury consults.
Let me give you a quick example that illustrates why people love UCM. A members was having heartburn like symptoms and woke up at 3 AM with sharp pain under their ribs on the right side. They consulted UCM and after communicating with the patient the emergency medicine doctor thought it was a gallbladder issue. UCM reached out to a local provider and got this patient an ultrasound scheduled for 8:45 AM that same day.
The net result…
They got the member an outpatient ultrasound within hours – avoiding an expensive emergency room visit -,and saved thousands of dollars. UCM follows up with all patients so if the member does have gallbladder disease the data can be sent to the TPA or carrier partner and care can be coordinated with a surgery center; potentially saving thousands more.
