By joining forces with the leading heart and vascular program in the U.S., Carrum Health – the first digital health company connecting employers and employees to Centers of Excellence (COEs) through a technology-powered platform for better, more cost effective healthcare – can now offer its patients nationwide a wide array of cardiac procedures and surgeries.
For 26 consecutive years, Cleveland Clinic has been ranked as the #1 hospital for cardiology and heart surgery by U.S. News & World Report, which highlighted its high-performing offerings, including treating heart failure and procedures such as abdominal aortic aneurysm repair, aortic value surgery, heart bypass surgery, and transcatheter aortic valve replacement. In 2020, the publication also ranked Cleveland Clinic the #2 hospital overall.
“Carrum Health is committed to working with the best-in-class providers to deliver exceptional quality care to our members,” said Sach Jain, CEO and founder of Carrum Health. “We are pleased to be able to bring Cleveland Clinic’s top-rated cardiology services to our members, giving them the opportunity to receive an incomparable level of life-saving care from our country’s leading provider.”
Carrum Health connects self-insured employers and their employees to the best possible care and delivers a superior patient experience. Carrum Health’s employer partners do not have to worry about variation in cost or quality of services because they receive bundled, transparent, and predictable surgery pricing for an entire episode of care, like heart surgery or a joint replacement. As a result, patients save thousands of dollars because copays and coinsurance are 100 percent waived.
“We are proud to welcome Carrum Health to our Center of Excellence Program,” said Lars Svensson, M.D., Ph.D., chairman of the Cleveland Clinic Sydell and Arnold Miller Family Heart, Vascular & Thoracic Institute. “This relationship will allow us to provide access to high-quality heart care to Carrum Health’s members and their families, in a cost-efficient way.”
Only hospitals and surgical centers ranked at or near the top in their specialties are included in the Carrum Health network, which evaluates both facilities and providers using a rigorous and proprietary quality methodology.
