Even with insurance, employees still face out-of-pocket expenses for acute care and pharma. 

If you can't increase hourly wages, you can offer employees acute care, pharmacy benefits and life insurance — all for as little as $.03/hour for employee and family.

Stop by our booth April 29-30 to discuss how we can help. Or, if you miss me at the event, download our Employee Benefits E-Sheet, or get in touch!

[Event] Top Takeaways from LTC 100

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Mon, May 07, 2018 @ 07:42 AM

Our executives returned from this year's LTC 100 event with 10 top takeaways for post-acute care leaders and immediately saw three ways we can help.

#1: Managed Care Will Become Your Best Payer

This means it's critical for you to streamline contract and case management right now. Bring contract data, plus best practice processes online with Managed Care MASTER to keep case and contract management quick and easy for staff.

#2 Make Staffing a Strategic Priority

Healthcare staffing remains a challenge, but bringing recruiting online with primeFORCE Job Center can help you hire qualified candidates faster. We've channeled primeFORCE partnerships with top insurance agencies into affordable employee benefits plans that will help you attract and retain staff in this highly competitive environment.

#3: Aim to Become a Post-Acute Care Management Company

Your residents shouldn't have to leave your facility to pursue other types of care. Build a network of care partners that are willing to deliver care to your facility.

Our affordable employee benefits plans also work for residents, enabling you to deliver telemedicine, prescription savings and life insurance right to their door.

Survival in this emerging post-acute environment requires extreme efficiency – and our technology and partnerships can help. If you'd like to hear more about this, get in touch.

Prime Care Technologies launches primeFORCE Healthline to reduce call-offs, healthcare claims, and turnover

By Prime Care Tech Marketing on Tue, Aug 25, 2015 @ 03:55 PM

We are excited to post a press release from Prime Care Technologies about the launching of Healthline, the latest in the fast-growing primeFORCE portfolio of solutions and services. Healthline can be a tremendous resource to help LTPAC providers in the highly competitive world of talent recruitment and retention to reduce call-offs, healthcare claims, and turnover. Please read on.

24/7 service puts healthcare professionals, advocates, and even physicians a phone call away
with no per-call consult fees.

DULUTH, GA, August 25, 2015 – Prime Care Technologies, Inc., the nation’s leader in technology-powered business solutions for providers of long-term/post-acute care (LTPAC), today announced the launch of Healthline, the latest in the fast-growing primeFORCE portfolio of solutions and services.    

An ideal offering for employers in labor-intensive industries where staffing is mission critical to operations, the service includes 24/7 telephone and/or video access to teams of healthcare professionals, without per-call consult fees.  Calls are answered in an average of 16 minutes and can include getting a prescription, when appropriate, from a physician for a common ailment. Other benefits include advice from a nurse practitioner on how to ease pain, help from a billing expert with negotiating discounts to lower out-of-pocket costs, a referral from a vision professional on the right specialist, assistance from a health navigation expert on where to get an inexpensive MRI, and much more. 

Employees constantly face tough choices, like calling off of work to take sick kids to the doctor, spending hours in crowded urgent care centers, and absorbing high fees towards high deductibles,” explained Joe Stone, Executive Vice President for primeFORCE. “With primeFORCE Healthline, help is just a call away, round the clock, from home, easing fears of lost pay and postponed care. Medications and treatments can start faster, reducing trips to the doctor and call-offs,” explained Stone. 

The benefits to employers are equally significant. On average, Americans visit a physician, hospital outpatient, or emergency department four times per year, at a cost of $104 per office visit and $1,318 per ER trip.[1]  “If employers can eliminate just one of each per employee per year the savings on claims alone add up quickly,” said Stone.  With primeFORCE Healthline, employers experience an average of 3.6X annual ROI, resulting from reduced call-offs, higher productivity, lower turnover, and lower expenses on claims.  “Healthline is a pressure relief valve for busy families, and welcome relief for employers looking for creative ways to keep talent.  Everyone wins,” summarized Stone.
