Innovations in quality and care coordination

Our leading population health management approach helps deliver value by ensuring that patients have access to the right care at the right time and in the right setting.

Southwestern Health Resources (SWHR) identifies what drives up costs across the healthcare continuum, then creates innovative solutions to standardize care, increase efficiencies and achieve quality outcomes. We use technology, predictive analytics and evidence-based care models to enable providers in our network to deliver optimal care.

Designing healthcare for the future requires a focus on preventive care and appropriate utilization, which ultimately reduces high costs or unnecessary expenditures — benefiting patients, providers, health plans and employers. 

Case studies

By aligning provider incentives and mindsets around a single purpose — building a better way to care, together — integrating data-driven insights and scaling evidence-based improvements, SWHR simplifies and empowers care, for good. Our innovations range from partnering directly with employers to more effectively managing costs, to helping providers respond more appropriately to patient needs in times of crisis.
