Armor measures success by the degree to which we help our clients meet their goals. Listed below are several examples of us working with our client to accomplish desired objectives.
Reductions in Off-Site Care
The following graph illustrates reductions we have provided for three of our existing clients after the first year Armor assumed services. This graph does not reflect the additional reductions realized by the clients in transportation and security costs.
Under its prior contract with another vendor, Santa Rosa County spent over $800,000 in off-site and pharmacy expenditures each of the prior two years. By combining a comprehensive review process, well-structured contracts with community physicians and hospitals, and effective case management, Armor was able to reduce those expenditures to only $258,000 in the first year and $239,000 in the second year representing a 70% reduction and a two-year savings to the County of almost$1.2 million.
In our first year at Manatee County we reduced off-site expenses from the prior vendor’s $1.2 million to $434,000 – a 65% reduction. It is important to note the prior vendor provided services at Manatee County for 10 years. These reductions were achieved by providing higher credentialed personnel onsite, enhancing onsite services, and managing offsite services.
Our first year at Sumter County also resulted in a savings of over $800,000 – a reduction of 92%.
Other Success Stories in Managing Off-site Care
Brevard County: Armor negotiated a DRG based rate to replace the prior per diem and maintain contracted hospital services for the Sheriff’s Office.
Broward County: Armor successfully negotiated a change in hospital rates paid by Armor and our client. By increasing the contracted per diem rate and eliminating the prior “stop loss” provision, we reduced our client’s exposure to potentially high cost cases that would otherwise have incurred high total costs per case. We estimate savings to the Sheriff’s Office over $3.2 million based on subsequent hospital admission data.
