NEW YORK, September 18, 2019 – Create® today announced it has been named a Silver winner of the Most Innovative Product of the Year in the Healthcare category for the Best in Biz Awards 2019 International. An alternative cost saving health plan option, Create partners directly with the top integrated healthcare delivery systems in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut to improve care and reduce costs by an average of 10-24%. Create members can choose to receive all of their healthcare from one integrated hospital system and its affiliated providers or from the full spectrum of integrated systems. Lower payroll contributions and improved benefits incent members to select various health system options.
Create’s new health plan model is designed to address fragmentation of care, misaligned incentives, and the lack of market competition resulting from providers increasingly merging with delivery systems. Create contracts with the tri-state’s best integrated hospital and provider systems on behalf of Commercial, Labor, and Public Sector plan sponsors, transforming each system into a high-quality, low cost narrow provider network. Create also offers a more flexible option with all of its integrated system partners combined into one network. Using a cloud-based, state-of-the-art technology platform, Create members can compare costs, doctors, and locations of all available systems to determine the plan and network that best suits their needs.
The augmented customer experience also includes a cutting-edge mobile app, dynamic member and administrator portals with real-time and easy-to-use information, as well as concierge customer service and member advocacy. Create is operated by Brighton Health Plan Solutions, a healthcare enablement company with 30 years of TPA (third party administrator) experience in the NY tri-state market.
“Create was developed to transform healthcare delivery and give plan sponsors more choice in what they purchase,” said Michelle Zettergren, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer, Create. “Our customers are thrilled by their employees’ access to top local providers at a better cost. We are honored by the recognition from Best in Biz Awards 2019 International and the attention it brings to this much-needed innovation in the US healthcare system.”
“By partnering with leading integrated hospital and provider systems, we’re tackling the root issues plaguing American healthcare. We’re excited to be recognized for our work to expand choice, lower costs, and improve patient outcomes,” said Rondi Rabuse, President of Network, Create.
