UnitedHealthcare, NYUPN Partner to Provide Coordinated Care

UnitedHealthcare is collaborating with NYUPN Clinically Integrated Network to provide coordinated care to more than 70,000 New York residents.

The goal of the collaboration is to improve the quality of care for New York residents enrolled in UnitedHealthcare's employer-sponsored health plans, while cutting healthcare costs. Those residents will have access to more than 1,700 healthcare professionals affiliated with NYU Langone Medical Center and the University Physicians Network, according to a news release. 

"We are partnering with UnitedHealthcare in one of the largest initiatives in the region to help improve all areas of our practice as we continue to provide the highest levels of quality care to our patients, reduce total medical costs and increase patient satisfaction across the region," said Paula Marchetta, MD, president of NYUPN, in the release.

The healthcare providers participating in the collaboration will receive monthly updates on their patients, which will allow them to better monitor their patients' health. This enhanced monitoring system is being used to help physicians provide better treatment for chronic conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
