On average, individuals with rare conditions incur close to $23,000 per year in health care costs. This represents almost 3 times the cost of the average common chronic member (who spends about $8,000 per year) and nearly 5 times the cost of the average member overall.
Our exceptionally high member engagement rates combined with the day-to-day, caring support of Accordant's nurses and other clinical support professionals, leads to the personalized care and self-management capability that individuals with rare conditions need. Ultimately, our clients benefit from more informed and supported individuals, which in turn leads to optimized medical and pharmacy spend.
Using a member-centric approach, our programs emphasize education, treatment adherence, symptom management, and self-care. Objectives are accomplished through:
Proactive member identification: Accordant uses proprietary algorithms and combinatorial logic applied to medical and pharmacy over an extended period of claims experience to identify members with chronic condition diagnosis, not a specific event or cost, which allows for ample opportunity to adopt positive health behaviors through joining the program earlier.
Personalized education and support: Accordant's highly skilled registered nurses and resource specialists, who are trained in multiple disease states, work with members to develop a support system around their unique needs.
Meaningful interventions and outcomes: Accordant's proprietary system incorporates nationally recognized clinical criteria and programs to help ensure quality care and demonstrate positive results.
Accordant does not promote or endorse any particular drug or product. We do not receive any financial incentive from any outside vendor to do so. We support our "personalized service" by meeting member requests for specific information. We meet our customer requests by maintaining flexibility in our array of services. We provide information based on our clinical guidelines and provide information on all appropriate and useful medications as they may be of benefit to any or all of our members.
