Alight Solutions, a leading cloud-based provider of integrated digital human capital and business solutions, has expanded its healthcare navigation capabilities with the launch of Nurse Navigation, a new solution that provides employees with proactive clinical support throughout their healthcare journey.
Alight’s Nurse Navigation gives employees access to registered nurses who can prepare them for their provider visits and improve adherence to treatment plans. Once employees are directed to their preferred provider by an Alight Health Pro®, they can speak with an Alight Nurse Pro to better understand what information they need going into the appointment, what they should accomplish during the appointment, and what action should be taken afterward.
“Helping patients navigate the healthcare system is one thing, but it’s quite another to fully educate and empower them with a clinical resource that ensures optimal care throughout the entire experience,” said Adam Johnson, senior vice president and head of health strategy at Alight. “Our clients’ employees already had access to the best programs and cost savings the healthcare system has to offer. Now they’ll benefit from proactive advice that improves their interactions with providers and sets them on the path to recovery and living healthier lives.”
Serving more than 2,600 clients, Alight provides personalized, high-touch concierge support to 5.5 million employees. Alight’s data-driven approach, which is based on actual medical claims and employee experiences, helps connect patients to cost-effective, high-quality providers and even anticipate their healthcare needs. Alight’s healthcare navigation solutions have been proven to lower medical costs for employees by roughly 25%.
“When we can connect with patients before they have an obvious problem, we can win the larger challenge of preserving health, reducing trauma of illness and ultimately reducing the cost of care,” said Amit Manhas, medical director at Alight. “With Alight’s Nurse Navigation, we help people focus on known risk factors that can ultimately affect their health, and guide them to the resources to realize this goal.”
By having a healthier and better-informed workforce, Alight’s Nurse Navigation is designed to help organizations reduce their healthcare spend, control downstream costs and improve overall benefits program satisfaction.
