Keep Your Patients on Track with Wider Circle’s Proven Peer-Based Approach to Improved Health
Keeping patients and your bottom line healthy is the ultimate balancing act. Wider Circle decreases avoidable utilization and cost of care by connecting Medicare and Medicaid members with a trusted neighborhood network, where they feel comfortable and motivated to engage in healthy activities and take better care of themselves. Plus, they are encouraged to seek preventative care before things get expensive and fraught with complications.
Our peer-based community care approach increases patient engagement and re-engages patients in managing their health at that critical last mile, through in-person and virtual programming that has been shown to bring more hard-to-reach patients into clinics for care, improve quality scores and health outcomes, and increase member NPS scores and retention.

How It Works
Click on each step to learn about our approach
Our data team analyzes Medicare and Medicaid sponsors’ claims data, employing a proprietary grouping algorithm that produces clusters of patients likely to form loyal groups.
Engagement Specialists invite patients to meet other neighbors and our local culturally competent staff. They find hard-to-reach patients, build trust, address gaps in care and health inequities and extend the reach of providers’ care management teams into every community.
In every group, Facilitators galvanize able neighbors to serve as community ambassadors who reinforce the community presence that residents know and trust.
The end result is a flexible network of neighbors who trust one another and their providers, increasing the likelihood of engaging with preventative care and a better patient experience.
