5 What have we learned that should inform what Health Homes look like? 5 Listen to the customer……

6 6 Guiding Principles for Person-Centered, Recovery- Focused Services, developed by the Peer and Family Advisory Group of the WNYCCP in 2007 The goal is recovery, not just stabilization and maintenance. Hope is necessary and recovery is possible for everyone. Every individual is unique; every recovery different. People have prompt access to compassionate care and services. The system is flexible, wherever possible, to support the person’s recovery. Every plan for recovery is centered on the person’s goals, strengths, and preferences -- not the availability of a particular program or service.

7 7 Guiding Principles for Person-Centered, Recovery-Focused Services (continued) Natural supports, outside the mental health system, are explored and encouraged. Family support is valued and included when appropriate. There is a partnership between individuals and their treatment team, care coordinators, service providers, and their peers and family members, when appropriate. Individuals are educated to make informed choices about their health care and recovery. Peers (people in recovery) are included and involved at all levels in the organization. Everyone is treated with dignity and respect; differences in culture, belief, or language are valued.

8 What have we learned that should inform what Health Homes look like? 8 Listen to the customer…… Person centered, recovery focused care coordination produces better outcomes for individuals, and lower costs for payers

9 Person-Centered, Recovery-Focused Care Coordination adds value 9 Better quality 46% decrease in emergency room visits per enrollee* 53% reduction in days spent in a hospital* 78% of enrollees report “dealing more effectively with problems” (2009 Enrollee Survey) Better outcomes 31% increase in gainful activity* 54% decrease in self harm among enrollees* 53% reduction in harm to others* Lower costs 2008 Medicaid mental health costs for Care Coordination populations in NYCCP vs. comparison counties: (OMH August 2010) 92% lower for inpatient services 42% lower for outpatient services 13% lower for community support, physical health savings would be additional $5,541 lower average cost per person * 2009 Periodic Reporting Form Analysis

10 Outcomes Westchester County Care Coordination Program 10

11 What have we learned that should inform what Health Homes look like? 11 Listen to the customer Person centered, recovery focused care coordination produces better outcomes for individuals, and lower costs for payers Getting those outcomes requires new knowledge, new skills, a new culture – and that is hard work

12 12 It took a massive effort to develop the new knowledge, new skills and the new culture needed for person-centered, recovery-focused care coordination Changing the system to meet the needs of individuals rather than expecting individuals to fit into existing systems It will take an equally massive effort to move to from Targeted Case Management to Health Home Care Coordination

13 Starting in 2003 and continuing….. 13 Education and training Onsite mentoring Online practice recoveryskillbuilder. com Webinars Focused modules MonitoringFeedback Incentives P4P

14 What have we learned that should inform what Health Homes look like? 14 Listen to the customer Person centered, recovery focused care coordination produces better outcomes for individuals, and lower costs for payers Getting those outcomes requires new knowledge, new skills, a new culture – and that is hard work The Targeted Case Management work force is well positioned to make a successful transition to Health Home Care Coordination

15 Pilot with Monroe Plan for Medical Care 15 Teamed Community Based Intensive Case Managers with Office Based Managed Care Plan Case Managers What we learned The collaboration was effective in finding and serving individuals with serious mental health concerns and serious medical conditions The cultures of behavioral health providers and physical health providers are VERY DIFFERENT - we need to learn to speak each other’s language

16 NYCCP/Beacon Model for Complex Care Management 16 Teams provider-based Targeted Case Manager with MBHO based Complex Care Managers Intensive, flexible/episodic, focusing on physical and behavioral health care for individuals with highest needs -- serious mental illness, complex medical needs, top 10% in total costs. Achieved average length of stay of 6 months at the intensive level.

17 Characteristics of NYCCP/Beacon CCM 17 Grounded in supporting individuals to attain recovery goals related to life objectives – living, working, socializing. Empowers individuals through development of skills for self- management of physical and behavioral health symptoms Supports individuals in building an integrated, coordinated team of providers of choice Enhances the use of Peer Support services and other natural supports in the community. As generally available in the community, but also purchased using wrap around dollars if necessary for program enrollees. (e.g. Compeer Peer Wellness Coaches for the Well Balanced Program)

18 NYCCP/Beacon Complex Care Management can be an effective core for Health Homes 18 Focuses HR/HN populations and episodes of care Based on transition from Targeted Case Management to a practice equivalent to that of a Health Home Care Coordinator Maximizes resources through shorter lengths of stay in higher levels of care coordination and effective linkage with providers of choice Effective linkage to a provider of choice for a “health home” can lead to enhanced self management skills, timely health promotion and prevention services, early intervention, and mind-body health Melds Person-Centered Practice as an underpinning for the initiative AND a managed care focus on an episode of care and movement to recovery.
