Developing care management capabilities
Are new assets and technology needed for an optimized care model? Is it necessary to hire additional staff members to fill population health roles?
Health care leaders face a broad and overwhelming set of questions that encompass every facet of population health.
Common challenges to designing the right care management system
Organizations cannot successfully achieve population health management with a “one size fits all” care model, and health systems can develop the capabilities they need gradually. Once the foundation is laid, transformation leaders can broaden their care management scope and capabilities over time to encompass the entire system, and serve the whole population.
How we help
Our team helps clients implement a care management model that fits within their broader organizational strategies. This means developing goals that are specific to the institution’s patient population, unique market characteristics, and clinician capabilities.
We help design the care management infrastructure around distinct patient populations:
- High-risk: The top 5% of the population with at least one complex illness, multiple comorbidities, or psychosocial needs
- Rising-risk: The 15-35% of the population with multiple risk factors that could push them to the high-risk category if left unmanaged
- Low-risk: The 60-80% of the population who are healthy today
Our expert consultants focus on repurposing system assets, instead of making unnecessary investments, to achieve a successful care management strategy. We work with institutions to elevate care management from a secondary activity to a strategic imperative that spans the continuum of care.
