At first glance, Accarent Health co-owners Tim and Mary Koch, graduates of Loyola University Maryland who raised their four children in a Baltimore suburb, seem like the kind of subdued conservative couple you’d meet at an upscale backyard barbecue. Mary even alludes to a traditional relationship, noting that she runs the business “in house,” while Tim spends most of his time outside of the office: he’s the face of their two-year-old, 16-employee company. And yet, terms such as “disrupter” and “transformative” have been used to describe Accarent Health (pronounced uh care ent), launched in 2018.

As we begin to recover from COVID-19, the unprecedented disruption of the delivery of medical services has begun to make itself known. Telemedicine has advanced more in the last 30 days than the last 30 years. Surgeon reimbursements have dropped significantly as elective surgeries, particularly immunosuppressant surgeries, have been delayed, including higher cost complex cancer surgeries, transplants, spinal and orthopedic, bariatric, and cardiac surgical procedures. This disruption could have a substantial impact on health plan costs in the coming months and years. Hospitals, physicians and employers must learn to harness new technology, control expenses, market services differently, and manage distribution more effectively by simplifying the evaluation and comparison of healthcare quality and costs with defined, comparable bundled payments. This disruption only intensifies the need for price transparency, quality, and distribution efficiency offered by leading medical institutions. Healthcare leaders need to consider re-positioning their organization to absorb and prepare for changes in healthcare delivery, utilization and cost. Employers should contact Accarent today for a historical claim analysis to see how bundled payments can reduce their company’s overall healthcare spend while improving outcomes. Hospitals should contact Accarent to see how they can negotiate the ongoing disruption to the delivery of healthcare services.

In recent years, there has been a great deal of attention and conversation around the healthcare marketplace and its opaque and confusing pricing structure. Nowhere else will a consumer be forced to make a decision on a big-ticket purchase without knowing the cost or receiving an estimated quote for services.
