9 Mr. P, four months later Upon enrollment to our program, we focused on building a relationship with Mr. P and with his family. He was hesitant about working with our team, but after three months of intensive involvement, he began to engage. He now feels comfortable calling us with his concerns. Over the first four months, we had 43 conversations with him and his family and had 6 in-person visits. We then decreased to much less frequent contacts. He has had no ED visits or admissions since enrolling in our program, and he has attended almost all of his appointments. At one of these visits, his primary care provider said “This is the first time I have seen him stable. He looks like a different person!”

Interprofessional teams embedded in primary care Efficient data management Dashboard key to ongoing improvement Improvement in utilization and health despite complexity Effective care management takes time Partnership with local partners and stakeholders Patient Advisory Board

12 Resident and Provider Experience
All providers surveyed thought quality of care improved with care management "The largest impact that having teams at the GMC has had on me is this feeling that I'm not on my own advocating and caring for our patients--and that has been a huge emotional burden lifted."

13 Patient Experience “Another thing that makes me feel good is when people like Lisa and Fern and Dr. Hurstak reach goals with me. I know there’s someone on the other side fighting for me. I’m not by myself…They convinced me with facts that they are an asset for the patient’s care because they are always there for you.”

14 GMC Care Management Outcomes
Year prior to enrollment in CM During CM Percent reduction Hospital days per year per patient 9.75 4.53 53.5% ED Visits per year per patient 3.40 2.49 26.6% Utilization data for all patients who have been enrolled in Care Management (n=73).
