HEALTHCARE SUCKS. WE WANT TO MAKE IT BETTER.
The U.S spends more money on healthcare than any other country in the world. According to the World Health Organization we do not even rank in the top 20 healthcare systems.
- We spend nearly 18% of our GDP on healthcare. That is about spending $9,400 per capita on healthcare.
- For Medicare patients alone, we spend about $26 billion dollars annually on hospital readmissions. According to the Center for Health and Information and Analysis about $17 Billion of those dollars are in potentially avoidable readmissions.
We figured this would be a good place to start.
Provide higher quality care with the goal of saving some of this lost money.
QUALITY CARE + SUSTAINABLE LONG-TERM CARE + COST REDUCTION
= PANGEA MEDICAL
We believe that healthcare should chase value and results instead of money. You should be paying for the quality of care. Recently, CMS has come to the understanding that this is how healthcare performs at its best; switching the focus from quantity to quality. It is a patient-centered approach that focuses on how the dollars spent on healthcare services actually yields positive outcomes.
The power to change healthcare starts with raising the bar for quality standards. Pangea Medical is driven in our mission to take value-based care to the next level by focusing solely on the quality our partners and patients receive.
So why do we do what we do? Because there is a BIG problem that is underlying in ALL of our lives, and we know there are ways to fix it. Because Pangea Medical is more than a company, we are a movement of doctors, nurses, and innovators striving to make healthcare better and more affordable. That is why we are doing what we do.
