CICN's virtual bundle model achieves significant savings by executing organized care pathways. Thus, much of the cost reduction occurs within upstream and downstream services.

 

The Cost Comparison Calculator is an estimation tool for Value-Based Primary Care Groups, TPA's and Payers. The calculator produces an estimated difference in costs using CICN Virtually Bundled Care versus Usual Care. This is an estimate only.
