Goldfinch Health Achieves Savings Validation from Validation Institute

July 29, 2022—Goldfinch Health, the industry leader in clinical navigation through surgery and recovery, announced it has received a savings ‘stamp of approval’ from the Validation Institute. Validation Institute’s mission is to provide unbiased, data-driven insights on health care solutions and services by validating performance claims made by solutions providers and educating purchasers to drive transparency in the marketplace and maximize cost-savings.

Validation Institute reviewed data on 640 patients referred into the Goldfinch Health Surgery Concierge program. Participants in the Goldfinch program received support, guidance, and advocacy. The program combines tech-enabled navigation, personal contact, and evidence-based approaches to minimize use of opioids and drive efficient, safe post-surgery recovery.

Reviewers confirmed in excess of $1.6 million in avoided costs related to faster return to work post-surgery and savings from the Goldfinch program of $7.70 for every $1 invested.

“Healthcare and employee benefits features many outstanding programs,” said Brand Newland, PharmD, MBA, CEO of Goldfinch Health. “With completion of this review, we are very pleased to join a select group of those programs with third-party validation of savings. We believe this result empowers purchasers—it is possible to ‘do good’ for your employees and their families by providing a patient-centric program when it’s needed most and, at the same time, to ‘do well’ financially.”

Goldfinch tapped Validation Institute to perform the review. VI is a professional community that advocates for organizations and approaches that deliver better health value—stronger health outcomes at lower cost.
