SAN FRANCISCO, CA — (March 8, 2018) — During a presentation at the 18th Annual Employer Health Care Conference, Grand Rounds, the leader in matching employers and employees to high-quality care, announced the launch of Grand Rounds Summit. With Grand Rounds Summit, employees get the means to more readily navigate their care, while employers gain a high-performance network at national scale. This clinical navigation and network optimization solution is powered by Grand Rounds’ mobile technology, award-winning care team, and its proprietary engine for matching patients to providers.
“Grands Rounds has always focused on matching employees to high-quality physicians who are shown to deliver superior patient outcomes. We’re taking all we’ve learned and are intercepting people earlier, from their first interaction with the system,” said Grand Rounds CEO and co-founder Owen Tripp. “By connecting to more people sooner, we avoid more waste and complexities later. We’re using technology to do this efficiently, while our care team — our doctors, nurses, care coordinators and records specialists — are here to get to know each member inside out.”
Grand Rounds currently reaches over 3.5 million covered lives through its two core product offerings: Beacon™, its complex care solution (launched in 2014), and Grand Rounds Summit, a singular clinical entry point for all health care needs across the employee population. Grand Rounds Summit is immediately available to all large employers that seek a comprehensive clinical navigation and network optimization solution.
“News Corp first partnered with Grand Rounds on its complex care offering, Beacon. Streamlined access to high-quality physicians drove instant impact for our highest cost claimants. Yet, it was clear that we were just scratching the surface,” said News Corp SVP and Global Head of Benefits, Marco Diaz. “We launched Summit to our entire population to improve the holistic health care experience for each of our employees, while helping them become savvier consumers of care with each Grand Rounds interaction.”
“No one wants to be a patient. To me, efficient care means getting real help in the hands of employees, on their terms, without them having to think about it,” said Diaz.
With clinical navigation, the employee gets expert guidance on where to receive care and on how best to engage with their health care benefits — no matter how complex or straightforward their health care need. With network optimization, the employer gets a virtual network optimized for quality, and the means to seamlessly guide employees to the most appropriate resources within it — all while operating within the employer’s existing carrier and benefits ecosystem.
Grand Rounds is a proud partner to over 100 progressive employers and thousands of premier providers. Grand Rounds aims to make extraordinary care and outcomes an everyday thing. For everyone.
