Paula Lunde: Healthcare can be scary and it could also be complicated. We help members navigate a system that isn't always easy to best meet their needs.

Andrea Comporato: The connect model is designed around the unique needs of a particular employer, their culture, their philosophy around health benefits and the underlying health needs of that population.

Paula Lunde: We've got end to end clinical solutions that can address members needs, whether they're a low utilizer who's fairly healthy, or if they become moderate utilizers, just making sure that all of our medical management services are meeting everyone's needs

Andrea Comporato: And it's powered by a smart data platform that's delivering information to the clinical team to help people manage their healthcare risk

Paula Lunde: Clients who are on our connect model are seeing two to three times the engagement that we see with some of our other care models. And then we're realizing cost savings as a result.

Andrea Comporato: We bring that holistic care model to an employer, and that means lower costs and better quality outcomes.

Paula Lunde: We have a multidisciplinary care team that's made up of registered nurses, behavioral health clinicians, dieticians, health coaches, community health advocates.

Beth Fernandez: It's really the 360 approach. We're able to reach out to our pharmacists and they'll let us know what we need. We can then turn that around and speak with a member. We can reach out to the doctors and really be there hand in hand, like we're supposed to be.

Sabina Rosenstock: When we support our members, we do our best to send them as much information as we can to reduce any homework that they might need to do on their own. A recent member that I worked with had a new diagnosis of cancer. We were able to discover that they could really use some extra emotional support. So I was able to connect them with a personal therapist as well as a cancer support group. And then also connect them with our registered nurse case managers, to assist him with some referrals and authorizations, to be able to coordinate with his providers and his treatment team.

Beth Fernandez: We go that extra mile. We want to make sure that the member's never going to hear a no from us. Every aspect of the programs are designed to show the employees how much the employer cares about their wellbeing.

Andrea Comporato: Connect offers a white glove experience for employees, and it makes a difference.

Sabina Rosenstock: I really appreciate our team approach to helping members and hearing the feedback from members has been really wonderful.

Beth Fernandez: While I'm on duty and while I'm on the phone, I feel like a hero.

Paula Lunde: We're proud of how our teams have really touched the lives of members and really improve the quality of life.
