Respiratory Population Health

Over 50,000 patients & 400,000 assessments, millions of data points = exclusive insight

Encore Healthcare has a proven track record of delivering outstanding patient outcomes AND cost savings for health plans. Our respiratory-focused population health programs have delivered hospitalization and ED utilization reductions in the range of 30-60%, creating an ROI of more than 200% for our Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, and MCO partners. The home-based, Respiratory Therapist driven, Nexus Program uses innovative performance-focused protocols. Our multidisciplinary care team uses patient engagement techniques like Dynamic Dialogue™, which incorporates physician and care team involvement, including medication management. Members diagnosed with COPD and other respiratory conditions have high acute care utilization and fall into a provider gap that does not focus on respiratory population health.

Current COPD Cost:

  • 15% of patients account
    for 70% of spending

    $242.8M in 2019


  • Utilization/spending growing 20% per year

  • Nexus program savings @ 30% (current @ 55%) saves $72.6M
