Abacus Health Solutions
Abacus Health Solutions was founded in 1988 and is run by behavioral scientists offering empirically validated behavior change programs. The Abacus model is distinct as we identify and activate high-risk members with their own Primary Care Physicians. Most members with chronic conditions don’t properly manage their condition. Members who are properly activated with the healthcare system have lower hospitalizations and medical costs. Abacus interventions engage members with evidence-based health behaviors, improve health outcomes, and control costs.
Our innovative solutions are data driven and are proven to produce a short and long term Return on Investment.
Abacus increases patient activation by requiring engagement between a program participant and his or her PCP. This approach not only leads to better management of their chronic illness (and lower medical claims) but it follows the trend to focus on primary care and pay for performance (outcomes). This models fits perfectly with new models of care and payment with the providers, i.e. Patient Centered Medical Homes and Accountable Care Orgs.
Abacus leads with science and ends with results. We are generating an ROI in the second year of every program for every client. Our Diabetes Program averages a 4:1 ROI and have seen as much as a 15:1 ROI using a conservative methodology and focusing on medical claims only.
