Sentara Health Plans

Sentara Health Plans Case Study

Sentara Health, one of the leading health care systems in the country, is focused on living its mission — to improve health every day. A large portion of Sentara’s workforce and budget is dedicated to caring for people with diabetes. Optimal diabetes care involves timely screening to prevent and manage the complications of the disease, which include heart disease, stroke, amputation, end-stage kidney disease, and blindness. Sentara has partnered with Retina Labs to provide members with an array of in-home preventive health screenings including diabetic eye exams, HbA1c, colon cancer and kidney health testing as well as bone mineral density scans. This case study examens the success of Sentara’s in-home preventive screening program which has greatly enhanced the plan’s quality scores and unlocked millions in Virginia Medicaid bonus payouts. Most of all, this has helped their members stay healthy and avoid unnecessary vision loss caused by diabetic eye disease.
