As provider-based organizations increase the risk they are accepting under accountable care (ACO) initiatives, patient-centered medical home (PCMH) and health home-like arrangements, care management applications are becoming a necessity.

Casenet, LLC announces the release of an exclusive industry brief, “Accountable Care (AC), Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH), and Health Home (HH) Trends: Dual-Eligible Population Management and Care Coordination,” by IDC Health Insights and sponsored by Casenet, LLC.
“This IDC Health Insights industry brief strengthens why integrated care management and care coordination of Medicare, Medicaid and Dual-Eligible members is critical to improving patient health status and decreasing costs,” said Kevin Brown, CEO of Casenet, LLC. “The current top consumers of care in the U.S. are those with financial and age demographics and health conditions that qualify them for government assisted health benefits. A significant portion of this insured population seeks and receives care from hospitals instead of primary care physicians. To significantly change the current equation and results, a collaborative care team and an integrated system is the path forward to a high quality, lower cost patient experience and health service delivery system.”
“Health organizations (Payers and Providers) will need strategies to access newly available clinical data to provide insight into comprehensive case management and chronic disease management programs,” says IDC Health Insights research director Cynthia Burghard. “The slow economic recovery, aging of the population, and rise in chronic disease prevalence will require health organizations to more effectively manage the multiple co morbidities that exist for many dual-eligible seniors and the complexity and behavior modification challenges of managing patients with chronic illness. As provider-based organizations increase the risk they are accepting under accountable care (ACO) initiatives, patient-centered medical home (PCMH) and health home-like arrangements, care management applications are becoming a necessity.”
