Auxiant's FocusHealth Purchasing Program

Empowering plan members with relevant hospital cost and quality information.

Our proprietary FocusHealth consumer transparency program provides network-specific cost and quality information before members have a need for care.

FocusHealth is the market's only transparency model that combines quality and cost to derive a composite score for each hospital. Members are incentivized to use the highest value hospitals through creative plan design.

Auxiant's FocusHealth value-based purchasing program is an important first step toward reforming our health care system and addressing today's crisis of medical cost inflation. How? By helping employers get to the lowest possible medical spend while helping employees and families experience the highest possible quality of care and better outcomes.

The Current System

  • Members choose a hospital, but without price or quality information on the medical services they are seeking
  • Providers are reimbursed per service, creating incentives and costs
  • More is NOT better. National studies have proven that the more medical services provided, the worse the outcomes -- measured by mortality, complication rates, and overall patient satisfaction

Auxiant's FocusHealth Program

  • Patients make hospital choices based on a scorecard of price and quality
  • Providers compete with each other for patients based on price and outcomes
  • The plan lowers medical spend through improved transparency -- encouraging members to choose the highest quality providers at the most competitive prices.
