Support for Your Affordability and Health Promotion Goals
Not all medical groups are the same.
When a large percentage of a company's workforce chooses Hill Physicians, there can be less of a burden on an employer’s Health Management Program. Hill Physicians automatically provides health and wellness education, preventive care reminders, low-cost nutritional counseling, integrative health, case management and pharmacy utilization advice. These programs are provided at no cost and supplement any resources provided by the plan.
Doctors affiliated with Hill follow evidence-based clinical guidelines and receive on-going, individual measurements for best practices and peer group comparisions.
This feedback, combined with compensation models that rewards clinical performance, creates a push-pull alignment that improves caregiver performance and reduces unnecessary costs.
Each year, 69 million employees take sick days that cost, on average, $3,000 per worker*. Make sure your benefits package includes one of our partner HMO plans and that your employees have access to information about Hill Physicians.
