Arche Healthcare is a population health management company whose comprehensive solution empowers patients, physicians and payers in preventing ulcers and amputations that often result from diabetes.
Only a small percentage of people are receiving a truly comprehensive diabetic foot exam and we want to change that.
Informed by decades of peer-reviewed studies and clinical research on diabetes, Arche Healthcare’s evidence-based approach to prevention is also perfectly in sync with the sweeping changes now unfolding across the US healthcare system.
Prevention Pays, and Pays
Until recently, preventing the painful, life-threatening ulcers associated with diabetes has been virtually impossible within a deeply flawed US healthcare system. Instead, patients have been faced with expensive, frequent and unpredictable treatments that, even when successful, are prone to recurrence. And all too often, ulcers resulting from diabetes lead to amputation.
Beginning in 1998, everything began to change. The arrival of new technologies made patients smarter and more demanding (Google, smartphones, social media) and, in 2010, the Affordable Care Act launched a total transformation in how physicians (providers) and insurance companies (payers) approach patient care.
Today, prevention is the gold standard. The old way of simply treating diseases and complications that have already occurred is discouraged by health plans, even penalized. Patients and payers alike are rewarding physicians who focus on ‘prevention first’ while providers and health systems who persist in failed ‘fee for service’ models are withering away. 5-star patient ratings, soaring referrals and payer-designated ‘preferred provider’ standing are just some of the benefits you can expect from partnering with Arche Healthcare.
