SeeChange Health Insurance Enables Bay Area Members to Use Health Incentive Dollars to Join One Medical Group

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- SeeChange Health Insurance, a provider of value-based health plans to employers, has teamed up with One Medical Group to offer primary care services to SeeChange Health members. One Medical Group is an innovative primary care practice with multiple Bay Area locations throughout San Francisco, Palo Alto and Larkspur, including a Burlingame office opening in November.

SeeChange Health offers innovative benefit design solutions that reward members with health incentive dollars for taking simple preventive health actions. Through this collaboration, health incentive funds can be used to pay for annual membership to One Medical Group -- providing members with access to comprehensive, accessible, and affordable primary care services.

"Our health insurance products are designed to encourage utilization of high-value medical services," said Martin Watson, CEO of SeeChange Health. "One Medical Group offers accessible, best-in-class service to patients and aligns exceptionally well with our model where preventive and primary care are paramount." As a health plan, SeeChange Health rewards individuals who proactively manage their health. Health incentive dollars are given to plan participants when they complete a personalized Health Action Plan, consisting of an annual wellness exam, a health questionnaire, and a biometric screening (basic lab tests). Now, Bay Area members have the opportunity to complete health actions with the help of One Medical practitioners.

One Medical Group has built a successful primary care model around the needs of patients – including same-day appointments that start on time, more time with physicians, and mobile and online tools that help support health needs. One Medical doctors offer a comprehensive, integrative approach that starts with getting to know the patient, their concerns and helping them achieve their goals for good health.  

"Like SeeChange, One Medical believes that a proactive approach to health care starts with doctors and patients having an open and honest discussion about their goals," said Dr. Jeff Levin-Scherz, Chief Medical Officer for One Medical Group. "SeeChange members already understand the financial value of taking steps to maximize their health. Now members in the Bay Area have better access to primary care that is built around their schedules and designed to tackle their health questions and get them back to enjoying life."

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course).

And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
