“The Value of Developing and Implementing Alternative Care Models” will immediately follow the Healthcare Council of Western Pennsylvania’s Fall Conference

When: September 27th, 2019, 1:15 - 2:45 PM

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Developing new delivery models that embrace alternative payment models goes beyond simply supplying patients with information at time of checkout or discharge. It includes a commitment to patient-centered care, providing clear and useful information to patients, helping patients establish goals and plans to live a healthier life, creating a team of clinicians and administrative staff with clearly understood roles and responsibilities, and using office systems to support followup and tracking of patients. Managing programs aimed at chronic illness and changing behavior are challenging and take time for everyone involved— providers, patients, and caregivers. Yet, it is often patients themselves who are called on to manage the broad range of factors that contribute to their health. Common sense suggests—and health care experts agree—that people with chronic care needs should receive support to help them manage their health as effectively as possible. Helping patients to make good choices and maintain healthy behaviors requires a collaborative relationship between health system leaders, community-based programs, clinical teams and patients. Learning how to incorporate these new models into a health system or practice can support patients in building the skills and confidence they need to lead healthier lives.

TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION:

  • Working examples of alternative care models

  • Approaches to developing alternative care models

  • Impact on the management of chronic care

  • Identifying barriers to developing alternative care models

  • Components of these models that have led to improvements in health outcomes
