The value of continued, trusted partnership

Optum and Saber Healthcare Group have worked closely for the last eight years to deliver care to Saber’s nursing home members. Through their shared vision, they adhere to a member-centered, evidence-based approach that follows members’ goals of care and respects their autonomy.

When Saber began planning its response to the many challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, it looked to its trusted partner Optum for help.

Working together, Optum and Saber ensured that patients who tested positive for COVID-19 or were symptomatic received appropriate care. They also achieved the following:

  • Provided remote care to some patients and focused on advanced care planning
  • Made face masks for Saber facility staff
  • Facilitated telehealth to help nurses connect with patients
  • Navigated end-of-life care by providing grief counseling and emotional support to employees and members
