The nation’s leading health care insurer, UnitedHealthcare, and health care providers Advocate Health Care, Baylor Scott & White Health, Dignity Health, and McLaren Health Care are collaborating to increase the availability and quality of clinical information about medical devices. Find out how the partnership addresses current and future industry challenges.
SharedClarity members contribute device and clinical data from each of their systems. Coupling that data with UnitedHealthcare’s robust claim information yields an extensive and unique database. Member-led Clinical Review Teams analyze medical device performance and make clinical recommendations based on the results.
Our goal is to identify the most effective medical devices as a result of clinical reviews and comparative effectiveness studies on all sourced products. SharedClarity Clinical Review Teams, made up of member physicians, work closely with member supply chain leaders to identify and source medical devices with proven records.
With the support of evidence‐based clinical information, SharedClarity is focused on patient‐centered sourcing strategies for our members and clients. Employing a rigorous clinical review process ensures sourcing decisions that improve patient-centered care and result in significant cost savings.
