A New Approach to Health Care and Aging

Emory Healthcare Network (EHN) Advantage is designed to deliver comprehensive care and coverage to seniors to keep them at their healthiest. The program serves to

  • Lengthen patients’ active and independent lives
  • Provide support for caregivers and family 
  • Protect financial resources of seniors and Medicare Program

Why We Do It

  • The existing health care delivery model is fragmented, bloated and inefficient
  • It causes low compliance with chronic care management protocols
  • Patients with serious health conditions see an average of 11 doctors, resulting in poorly coordinated care
  • This leads to poorly managed and redundant care which, in turn, increases cost and rate of death
  • Health care costs in the last year of life increase seven-fold
  • 80% of seniors wish to die at home. In the U.S., around 20% actually do

As A Result

  • Chronic conditions progress more rapidly due to poor management
  • Precious family and public resources are wasted
  • Patients and families experience unnecessary hardship

How We Are Transforming Care Through A Collaborative Model

To deliver high quality, cost-efficient services to Medicare beneficiaries, EHN Advantage delivers a model of proactive, integrated healthcare within our network of hospitals and over 2800 physicians.

EHN Advantage employs a Care Coordination team that is specially trained in areas that affect seniors. Your team then works with an EHN primary care physician to create an individualized care plan for you.
