Employers are looking for ways to improve access to quality health care while lowering the cost of providing health benefits to their employees. With Innovation Health, employers benefit from:

The Partnership

Innovation Health is the result of a unique partnership between two industry leaders: Inova and Aetna.  Inova is a nationally recognized health system and Aetna is one of the nation’s leading health care insurance benefits companies.  This unique partnership provides a sustainable solution to help resolve some of the critical issues that exist in the current health care system including: cost, quality and patient experience.

The Aetna – Inova Partnership combines:

  • The strength of Inova’s long-standing local and regional relationships and market presence for delivering community-based health care and coordinated wellness programs and services
  • Aetna’s integrated strategy to promote the overall health, wellness and productivity of its members while utilizing Aetna’s experience with health plan administration

Cost Savings

Innovation Health addresses the issue of cost. The combination of Aetna’s low administrative costs with Inova’s significant cost of care reductions allows Innovation Health to offer a lower-cost health plan option with improved quality of care. We do this through enhancing the communication and coordination of the health care team which leads to more efficient, improved patient care.

Patient Experience

Innovation Health’s emphasis is on prevention and the promotion of wellness for a healthier and more engaged workforce. We will do this by enhancing a patient’s experience through greater participation in quality-based care.  This type of care coordination allows employees to share in the decision making with their health care providers. This will lead to the ordering of more appropriate medical tests, lower out-of-pocket costs, and more convenient options for accessing medical care. Additionally, we will support your employees with engaging programs.  This helps to maintain their health, prevent illness, offer better control of chronic diseases, and speed recovery if an employee is acutely ill. This includes early referrals to care management programs such as: case management, transitional care management, disease management, maternity management and behavioral health.

Other Benefits include:

  • Identification of more cost-effective network providers
  • Early discharge planning and a unique Transitional Care Management Program
  • Increase use of Aetna’s networks of Institutes of Excellence TM and Institutes of Quality ® for transplants and bariatric surgeries
