The Goldfinch Experience
Lower healthcare costs. Reduce absenteeism. Improve morale.
Most employers are shocked by how much outdated surgery is impacting their bottom line. Companies lose $38 billion a year in wages. Run-away healthcare costs and high-cost claimants due to poor surgical outcomes only add to this total.
This happens because 95% of surgeries are performed using outdated protocols. These surgeries can cause avoidable complications, opioid addiction, budget-breaking expenses and long recoveries.
Protect your people. Protect your plan.
With Goldfinch Health's Enhanced Surgical Journeys, your employees and covered members have access to clinically-proven Enhanced Recovery Around Surgery (ERAS) protocols and Goldfinch Nurse Navigators to ensure the best possible outcomes.
We make it easy for you to add Goldfinch to your employee benefits. Companies can start anytime during the year. No need to narrow the network or change your plan documents--we work within your existing network. And only pay when this employee benefit is used!
On average, Goldfinch Health-supported members return to work 34 days faster than the national average and use 50% fewer opioids. And 96% of Goldfinch-supported members would recommend the program to their friends and family.
Protect your members. Protect your risk pool. Preserve choice.
When a member has surgery, the unknowns can be overwhelming. Will the surgery be successful? Will there be complications? How long will your member be out of work? How much will it cost? And will your member have ongoing opioid dependence?
When 95% of surgeries are performed using outdated techniques, these concerns are warranted. Union members face unique challenges given the often physical nature of their trades. At Goldfinch Health, we don’t accept the status quo. We believe the most advanced healthcare should be available to everyone. And we believe that you (not someone else) should be able to choose your healthcare providers.
Manage the pain of surgery, without the risk of opioid addiction.
Goldfinch Health’s clinically proven Enhanced Surgical Journeys have been shown, through member support and advocacy, to reduce recovery times by half and prevent costly complications and readmissions. You can start any time during the year without any change to your existing provider network. Get your members back to work and life faster while protecting your shared risk pool for everyone.
Surround claimants with support. When they really need it.
Surgery is part of over a quarter of short-term disability claims. And at least 95% of surgical experiences are more costly and invasive than necessary.
Large-incision, outdated surgery approaches and opioid-dependent recovery protocols are the formula for long recoveries after surgery. And that is exactly what the data shows.
In musculoskeletal cases alone, there are over 750,000 short-term disability claims each year. The average claimant misses 78 days of work and receives $9,000 in disability benefits. We can do so much better.
Coordinated care. Case management simplified.
Throughout the claimant's journey, Goldfinch Nurse Navigators support not only the claimant but also analysts and case managers by providing their specific expertise in opioid-sparing, fast-track recovery surgery and recovery. Our goal is coordinated, high-quality care for every member.
And this member-friendly advocacy approach doesn’t just reduce costs per claimant. With members more quickly on the road to recovery, administrative burden is reduced as well.
High-cost claimants and surgery. Finally, an answer.
