What You'll Learn

To be successful population health managers, providers can't just focus on high-risk patients. They must also manage rising-risk patients, or those with two or more unmanaged chronic conditions (about a third of the population).

Simply replicating or extending the high-risk care manager model is expensive and clinically unnecessary for this population. Instead, managing these patients requires a lean staffing blueprint with a nuanced approach to workforce utilization.

Explore how to achieve two outcomes for this group:

  • Decrease the direct cost of care
  • Reduce the number of patients who become high-risk each year
