A Risk-Stratified Approach to Care Management Staffing

Eighty percent of the total healthcare spend in the US can be attributed to twenty percent of patients. These individuals are high need, high-risk and, without targeted care management support, will have exponential impact on cost & utilization, jeopardizing risk-based contracts.   

A tiered team approach to care management staffing enables each team member to work at top of license and allocates the appropriate resources to address the unique needs each patient and manage the risks associated.

In this roundtable event, we will explore care management staffing models that effectively address these high-need, high-cost patients and rein in the threat to risk based contracts, all while meeting the needs of the entire population.  

During this session we will:

Historically, physician leadership often focused on medical staff management, serving in the roles of department chair or chief of staff, or on a medical society committee. While important, the skills required in these roles were associated with organizational management, local politics, and professional advocacy. 

Now, in our dramatically changing healthcare landscape, physician leadership requires additional and more complex skills ranging from change management, Health IT expertise, systems redesign, performance improvement, business knowledge, as well as the classic leadership skillsets of organizational management and political savvy. Join us for this event, as we explore these new skills and how they can be developed by physicians aspiring to these new leadership roles.

During this session we will:

The quest for value over volume requires a foundation of advanced primary care with new patient centered systems of care and team-based roles that are sustainable.  This means that a primary care practice must be both a great place to work—providing meaning and purpose—and a thriving business. This webinar will explore the business case and return on investment opportunities for successful advanced primary care and provide ideas and examples from practices that have achieved this “fifth aim”—business vitality and growth.

During this session we will:

Effective community-clinical partnerships to address social determinants of health can powerfully impact an organization’s ability to manage the total cost of care.  Even when practices are successful in improving quality of care, adapting to changing payment models, and addressing burnout, many remain challenged to meet the needs of their highest risk patients. Practices, providers and healthcare leaders must learn to engage and team with their community agencies to provide whole-person care for vulnerable patients. Join us to learn about “community-clinical linkages” and how to become a catalyst for this new frontier of primary care collaboration.
