The Need for Value and Connected Care

As people demand more personalized healthcare and payers seek new ways to get more value for the money they spend, Express Scripts delivers a new clinical management model combining personalized care plans to each individual, high-touch clinical expertise and actionable data insights.

For each patient, clinical care support will be tailored to specific engagement preferences.

Together with our clients, we will establish specific, performance-based clinical outcome targets to meet individual clients’ needs, including those specific to Medicare plans for Star Ratings and Medicaid plans for HEDIS, as well as other quality metrics.
