Delivering appropriate healthcare without waste

Accolade employs Global Appropriateness Measures to help members get connected to the right physicians for their specific healthcare needs, resulting in good health outcomes while reducing healthcare waste.

In this resource

Every healthcare issue is a unique one, informed by the patient’s personal situation, needs, and priorities. That’s why Accolade uses every available tool to connect members with the right healthcare professional for their unique situation.

Among those tools are Global Appropriateness Measures (GAM), a metric that uses data to identify the treatment plans most suited to a given healthcare problem. Using these metrics, Accolade’s frontline care team of Care Advocates and nurses can connect members with most appropriate provider for their healthcare plans, delivering good outcomes for patients while cutting down on wasted healthcare spending, such as inappropriate or unnecessary procedures.
