First Choice Health is the market leader in creating successful direct-to-employer (DTE) partnerships with clinicians and health systems. We develop, integrate, and sell provider-led health benefit solutions that deliver sustainable value and improved health outcomes for commercial populations. A provider-centric approach to health benefits is a better alternative to the fragmented insurance-centric models.
First Choice Health has proven methods and processes that enable clinicians and health systems to effectively launch, execute, and manage a comprehensive, end-to-end healthcare solution for self-funded employers. Our direct-contracting process is built from, and informed by, decades of experience serving clinicians and health systems, and their employees.
KEY PARTNERSHIPS INCLUDE:
MultiCare Connected Care | Eastside Health Network | Embright | Central Oregon Select | Monument Health | Nebraska Health Network

from value-based contracts that benefit both providers and employers
ADDITIONAL REVENUE STREAMS
from applying existing value-based care initiatives to new commercial populations

The second step involves developing the product, including a seamless member experience, network formation, care management workflows, and data integration for real-time client reporting.

3) SALES ACTIVATION
Step three is determining the best approach to go to market with a robust product offering. Each market is different, but the principles around how to reach a specific market are the same.

- Custom Sales and Marketing Collateral
- Client Acquisition Strategy
4) GO-TO-MARKET STRATEGY
The final stage is product deployment, including building relationships with regional brokers and employers. Understanding how the messaging and "fit" of the product-market resonates with employers is critical.
