A new study on
“Effective Management of High-Risk Medicare Population” recently
released by Avalere Health focused on ways for payers and providers to
better manage the cost of high-risk Medicare beneficiaries – typically
older adults with multiple chronic conditions and functional impairment.
The study revealed that to be successful in this effort, health plans
and physicians need to not only focus on treating a person’s medical
condition but must also have strategies in place for managing a broad
array of care needs across multiple settings.
The study cited the GRACE Team Care (Geriatric Resources for the Assessment and Care of Elders) program from Indiana University Medical Center to be among the nation’s most successful in effectively managing high-risk Medicare populations. GRACE involves a team approach to managing a patient’s health, which has been proven to enhance quality of geriatric care in ways that optimize health and functional status, decrease excess healthcare use, and prevent long-term nursing home placement.
Please join Doctor Steven Counsell, Executive Director of GRACE Team Care for a one hour examination of the GRACE Team Care Approach in Managing High-Risk Medicare Populations on Wednesday, April 29th, 2015 at 1PM Eastern. Click here for detailed information and to register or call 209.577.4888.
