Red Signal Report — Primary Care

Report
This report belongs to the Coverys Red Signal Report series.

The role of the primary care doctor has become increasingly important and challenging. Primary care physicians impact all aspects of their healthcare systems’ quality, patient satisfaction metrics, and risk exposures. They are accountable for all aspects of the patient care continuum. This includes referral management, management of multi-morbidities, etc., while keeping a sharp eye on utilization, appropriate level of care, and patient satisfaction. 

Our Red Signal Report – Primary Care provides a unique perspective on the challenges primary care physicians deal with every day. The report integrates claims data analytics, risk assessment, and best practice solutions into a concise report. It demonstrates how important risk management focus areas overlap with patient safety metrics (e.g. MACRA and MIPS) and provides risk recommendations that align with quality measures.
