We believe Care Cycle Management will change how care is delivered in the home.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 18, 2011
Today Wyatt Matas released its latest report on a developing industry call Care Cycle Management. The report can be accessed at: http://tinyurl.com/wyattmatas.
The Care Cycle Management industry can be described as the integration of interventional disease management and care delivery to coordinate the care and reduce the cost of care for the most chronically ill on at-risk or shared-savings bases. Over the last year, Wyatt Matas worked with several care provider and disease management companies to analyze effective care coordination business models, which solve a significant problem for the healthcare system.
Chip Measells, a Partner at Wyatt Matas, said, “We were interested in finding and assisting in the development of business models that truly broke down healthcare silos and coordinated the care of 25% of the population that cost the healthcare system 83% of total expenditures. We had theorized that allowing disease management to go the last mile by delivering care in the home on an at-risk basis would align the interest of the patient, care provider or coordinator and the payor source. Those companies executing Care Cycle Management business models are showing significant outcomes by lowering hospital readmissions, reducing overall healthcare cost and dramatically exceeding patient satisfaction.”
Wyatt Matas stated in the report that companies participating in the Care Cycle Management industry would include, case and disease management, healthcare call centers, home healthcare, integrated healthcare centers, physician house call, and risk management companies. Measells stated, “We have spent the last several months mapping the industry to identify those companies that will be significant participants in the Care Cycle Management industry. We have now started to facilitate the capital that will build an industry we estimate to have an annual spend of $87.8 billion.”
