Complex Care Management
Follow along for our ongoing Complex Care Management project updates.
MOST RECENT UPDATES
Over the next several months, the clinical and population health teams will work with our consulting team. Health Management Associates was hired to create a program for HealthPoint patients. They will offer additional support to clinical teams, when they see fit. Health Management Associates will help ensure our patients receive the care that meets their specific health needs. This program will begin at the BCS, Hearne, and Caldwell clinics for now. Then, by the middle of 2022, expansion to other clinics will begin.
Our goal: Create a care management team that will provide further focused care for HealthPoint patients. Specifically those with complex chronic conditions, thus supporting their continued well-being.
- Time of clinic impact: January 2022
- Affected Clinics: Caldwell, Hearne, and BCS will be initial pilot sites. Eventually, HealthPoint plans to expand this program to all clinics.
What is Complex Care Management?
Above all, Complex Care Management (CCM) effectively assists patients and their caregivers. It helps to manage medical conditions and co-occurring psychosocial factors. CCM will be deployed to patients with serious medical needs. Specifically those who often experience a high number of hospitalizations or emergency room visits. The goal of CCM is to improve the patient’s health status and reduce the need for hospital care.
