We all have the goal of delivering the most optimal network to our members to meet their needs and our business needs. But with so much disparate provider data from multiple sources needed to paint a clear picture, pulling it all together to make data-driven decisions to optimize your network can be a challenge.

Join Zelis to discuss the three R's of optimizing your network:

  1. Remove providers who are low quality, high cost or simply do not exist by integrating complex provider elements into your analysis
  2. Replace these providers by identifying network access gaps and bench marking the maximum accessibility possible in a market using state and federal standards.
  3. Recruit high quality, low cost providers to maintain your competitive advantage and understand your competitive position in the marketplace

There are many factors to optimizing your network. The three R's of network optimization will help you prioritize each step of the process.
