CHD Centers of Excellence Network: Access to High-Quality CHD Care
CHDRS provides patients and case managers with access to cost-effective, high-quality congenital heart disease (CHD) health care. The CHD Centers of Excellence network of elite CHD programs was developed by identifying best practice CHD programs throughout the U.S.
In addition to developing the network, CHDRS uses Optum's considerable purchasing power and contracting experience to negotiate significant discounts at these centers
Optum's client services team assists patients, case managers and physicians in making informed decisions about CHD health care. Our clinical resources include account managers and cardiothoracic surgeons.
Account managers help patients and case managers select providers and gain an understanding of CHD. In addition, based on fetal-echo data provided by clients, they proactively call parents prior to the patient's birth to prepare the family in advance.
Our network surgeons are available to discuss clinical issues and potential cases with referring physicians and medical directors.
