Where we are moving… FOCUS ON DISEASE FOCUS ON HEALTH • Sub optimal satisfaction • Enrollment • Increase appropriate access • Appointment system • Improve population health • Claims processing • Enroll and assess needs • Sub optimal points of access • Primary disease/injury prevention • Advice/Triage/E.R. • Clinical practice guidelines • Highly episodic utilization • Demand management • Many unplanned visits • Referral management • Lack of continuity • Case management • Decreased “health status” • Ensure continuity of care • Increased satisfaction & loyalty INTERVENTION PREVENTION 11-4
  5. 5. Why do we care? • Because leadership is tracking it… • Gaps exist in quality of care… • Persons with disease/risk cost more… • We work in a financially constrained environment • Improves outcomes, productivity, satisfaction 11-5

  9. 9. Demand Forecasting • Requires: • Accurate population identification (size, gender, age) • Knowledge of: • Health care needs of the population (imms & other CPS) • Prevalence of disease/conditions within the population • Clinical practice guidelines (including VA/DoD CPGs) • Operationally defined & system-required demands (pre- deployment requirements, physical exams, overseas screening, etc.) • Resources: • Utilization Reviews (historical data such as chart reviews and M2 queries) • Demand Forecasting models 11-9

  15. 15. Evidence-Based Careand Prevention• The provision of healthcare using a systematically developed, research-based approach • Identifies people with or at risk for chronic disease• Provides patients & families: • Evidence-based information & tools (e.g. CPGs) • Multidisciplinary team to follow plan of care • Referral to resources, as needed (e.g., case management, disease management) • Health promotion and/or patient self-management education 11-15

Evidence-BasedHealthcare Goals• Improved Quality of Life SCENARIO: What 3 chronic • Higher Functional Status diseases of Col • Self-Management Smith do we have VA/DoD CPGs? • Fewer Hospitalizations/Acute Visits• Improved Quality of Care • Reduced variation• Decreased Costs  More Resources Available for Prevention Strategies 11-16
  17. 17. 11-17
  18. 18. Program Evaluation & Feedback • Implementing Clinical Practice Guideline (CPG) is NOT enough • Measure outcomes to evaluate your program’s processes and performance • Service required clinical metrics • Use the Population Health Portal on CarePoint • National benchmarks (examples) • Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS®) • Healthy People 2020 • Joint Commission-ORYX 11-18
  19. 19. Medical Management Model 11-19
  20. 20. Case Management (CM)• Definition: • A collaborative process under the Population Health continuum that assesses, plans, implements, coordinates, monitors, and evaluates options and services to meet an individual’s health needs through communication and available resources to promote quality, cost-effective outcomes. • DoD Medical Management Guide 2009 11-20
  21. 21. Case Management (CM)• Goals: • Promote quality, safe, and cost-effective care. • Promote utilization of available resources to achieve clinical and financial outcomes. • Facilitate appropriate access to care. • Collaborate with the patient/family, physician, healthcare providers, and others to develop and implement a plan that meets the needs and goals of the patient. • Develop individualized patient plans of care. • Offer objectivity, healthcare choices, and self-management solutions. SCENARIO: • DoD Medical Management Guide 2009 How could Col Smith have benefitted from Case Management? 11-21
  22. 22. Case Management (CM)The MHS has three primary goals for CM:• Improve the care, management, and transition of recovering Service members.• Broaden the application of CM to include beneficiaries with complex needs and at-risk beneficiaries before they require complex care.• Evaluate the impact of CM on the quality and efficiency of military health care.Additional goals applicable to caring for wounded warriors are to:• Assist the recovering Service member in receiving quality medical and behavioral health (BH), which may include lengthy inpatient stays and transistions between facilities or between outpatient medical and BH services.• Assist the recovering Service member and his/ her family in understanding the recommended treatment (including BH services) and in receiving timely access to that treatment. 11-22
  23. 23. Utilization Management (UM)• Definition: • An organization-wide, interdisciplinary approach to balancing cost, quality, and risk concerns in the provision of patient care. UM is an expansion of traditional Utilization Review (UR) activities to encompass the management of all available healthcare resources, including Referral Management (RM). -DoD Medical Management Guide 2009 11-23
  24. 24. Utilization Management (UM)• Goals: • Maintain the quality and efficiency of healthcare delivery by: • Providing patients with the appropriate level of care. • Coordinating healthcare benefits. • Promoting the least costly, most effective treatment benefit. • Determining the presence of medical necessity -DoD Medical Management Guide 2009 SCENARIO: How could Col Smith have benefitted from a working Utilization Management Program in this Multi-Service Market? 11-24
  25. 25. Disease Management (DM)• Definition: • An organized effort to achieve desired health outcomes in populations with prevalent, often chronic diseases for which care practices may be subject to considerable variation. DM programs use evidence-based interventions to direct patient care. DM programs also equip the patient with information and a self-care plan to manage his/her own health and prevent complications that may result from poor control of the disease process. The term “condition management” includes non-disease states (e.g., pregnancy). -DoD Medical Management Guide 2009 11-25
  26. 26. Disease Management (DM)• Goals: • Improve clinical outcomes • Increase patient and provider satisfaction, • Promote appropriate utilization of resources throughout the MHS• Purpose: • Improve the quality of life for individuals by preventing or minimizing the impact of a disease or chronic condition. -DoD Medical Management Guide 2009 SCENARIO: What diseases of Col Smith’s should be part of a Disease Management program? 11-26
