Emergency Reform: It’s Time for Change in Our Healthcare System
Op-Ed article from The Hill, authored by HealthBI Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Koorosh Yasami.
HealthBI’s Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Koorosh Yasami, recently authored an Op-Ed piece in The Hill, a non-partisan, objective online news and policy “must read” covering important issues of the moment.
The article, “Emergency reform: It’s time for change in our healthcare system,” appeared February 22, 2018. Yasami asserts that payers and providers “should strive to find ways to reduce ER costs that don’t put patients in danger—or in debt.”
He then provides examples of healthcare insurers that are taking alternative paths to decrease ER claims by using technology to identify critical care gaps for high-risk members—and connect them to more frequent primary care and preventative services.
