Improve Health Outcomes & Reduce Costs via Employer-Sponsored Health Centers

Insights | Improve Health Outcomes & Reduce Costs via Employer-Sponsored Health Centers

HORAN is laser-focused on improving the future of health care. The most innovative solution we've seen recently leverages real, independent primary care. Independent primary care will engage your employees and their families, decrease wasteful spending, improve the patient referral experience and reduce the cost of chronic conditions.

Independent primary care refers specifically to physicians who work independent of any one health system or hospital. Real, independent care—like the Marathon Health solution (previously known as OurHealth)—allows patients to receive high-quality care and unbiased advice for more complicated services. Independent primary care puts patients first by aligning economic incentives with health outcomes.

Why Primary Care Matters
Primary care visits save employers money. A good primary care physician (PCP) is the best defense for managing chronic conditions and is proven to reduce the cost of claims for employees and their spouses.

  • An annual PCP visit saves the plan $700 per employee
  • Spouses without an annual PCP visit cost a health plan $1,300
  • Unmanaged hypertension costs employers $17,000 per patient
  • PCP visits drive savings across cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, gastro and cancer claims
  • Diabetics with complications cost $8,000 more per year 

About Marathon Health
