Fortune 500 Technology Client

Precision health engagement tangible results

Hypertension is often one of the top 3 drivers of healthcare costs for employers and impacts 10-20% of the total employee health plan population. When left untreated, hypertension can damage the heart blood vessels, kidneys, and other parts of the body. To address rising health care costs, a Fortune 500 technology company engaged Abacus Health Solutions to support members with hypertension.

Through data mining, multi-modal communications and outreach, Abacus identified and engaged at-risk members.  The Program provides an easy to use, cordless Bluetooth blood pressure cuff. The cuff uploads blood pressure readings to the Abacus Good Health Gateway platform.   

These readings allowed Abacus clinical pharmacists to address medication regimens, medication adherence, lifestyle changes and review the readings with the members primary care physician.

The client provided the intervention to 500 employees with hypertension:
  • The program increased patient activation, improved self-management activities, and improved blood pressure control.
  • For all program participants, pharmaceutical adherence increased and medical costs decreased, driven by substantially lower hospital admissions.

Abacus Health

Maintaining the health and safety of our employees and program members is our top priority during this public health crisis.

The Abacus Health HelpLine is fully operational. HelpLine Advocates are available to answer member’s questions about our programs, assist with program enrollment and schedule a time for members to speak with our clinical staff.  Additionally, our entire staff is fully operational and operating remotely.

Due to the challenge in scheduling/keeping routine appointments, all members in the program with a lab or exam coming due between March 1 and April 30, 2020 will receive a 60-day extension. This ensures that our members continue to have access to their much-needed incentives. We will continue to evaluate this as needed. We understand that not all areas of the country are experiencing healthcare system challenges, so we encourage members to call their doctor to determine if they should keep their scheduled appointment.

Our program members are encouraged to take advantage of the valuable resource they have in our Nurses, Diabetes Educators and Pharmacists. Members can schedule a call with one of our clinicians by calling 800.643.8028.
