1 Money Follows the Person/ Pathways to Community Living Care Management ProcessesRevised 2/6/20151
2 Goals of Care Management Improve individual/family/caregiver’s participation in healthcare decisions and management.Improve individual/family/caregiver’s abilities to self-manage health conditions, medication adherence and participation in health promotion activities.Assist individual/family/caregiver in proactive monitoring, evaluating and problem solving.Improve collaboration among/between individual/family/caregiver, providers and care managers.Improve the coordination and continuity of care across the continuum of care.Improve individual/family/caregiver’s health status, satisfaction and quality of life.Improve the delivery of cost effective care in the least restrictive environment.
3 Care Management Definition Care Management is a person centered team based approach (individual/family/caregiver, care manager, primary care provider/psychiatrist) which integrates health care and social supports. It is based on a comprehensive multi-disciplinary assessment that identifies and prioritizes goals, strengths, problems/risks and barriers to care. A collaborative comprehensive plan of care is developed and implemented, proactively monitored and evaluated, following evidence-based guidelines and standards of care which promotes self-management of health conditions, medication management, health promotion activities, and assures that identified providers, services and supports are meeting the needs of the individual/family/caregiver. Transitions in care are managed with timely follow-up, facilitation of communication between providers, and individual/family/caregiver with adjustments to the plan of care.(Schraeder, 2012)

6 Care Management Activities Assess health status, goals, strengths, problems/risks, barriers to care, needs and self management abilities of each individual.Develop and implement with individual/family/caregiver/providers a comprehensive care plan based upon evidenced-based guidelines and standards of care.Coach, teach and empower individual/family/caregiver to learn and develop abilities to self-manage: health conditions, medications, red flags, and identified problems/risks.Coordinate and follow-up with formal and informal service providers.Support individual/family/caregiver to implement plan of care, report challenges/successes, and changes in status.Collaborate with other disciplines and professions regarding the individual/family/caregiver’s plan of care.
7 Care Management Activities Facilitate communication of pertinent information between providers and with individual/family/caregiver while tracking health status over time with early communication of changes.Advocate for the individual/family to ensure the correct level and type of care and services are received.Negotiate with healthcare system and payor sources to obtain necessary services.Monitor and evaluate effectiveness of the plan of care, teach individual/family/caregiver how to evaluate the effectiveness of their plan of care and revise plan of care to reflect changes in individual’s health status, psychosocial needs, and self-management abilities.Document individual/family/caregiver and provider contacts.Manage transitions of care.(Schraeder, 2012)
8 Case StudyMs. Paula Johnson is a 60 year-old Caucasian female, 5’2” and 235 pounds, with a BMI of 43, which is considered heavily overweight. She was admitted to Oak Nut nursing facility 3 years ago after an accident that resulted in a spinal fracture and cord injury at T4-5. She uses a wheelchair for mobility. Her other diagnoses include Type II Diabetes Mellitus (DM), Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) with a previous Myocardial Infarction (MI), and Hypertension (HTN). Her primary language is English and she can read and write. She is of the Catholic faith and likes to attend mass at least once a week. She is not in need of a guardian and her emergency contact person is her sister who lives 4 hours away. She is divorced. She does not have any legal documents in place (no POA or living will). Paula has a 9th grade education and has worked in dry-cleaning intermittently. She was arrested once for shoplifting and on probation for 2 years afterwards. This happened about 25 years ago and she has not been in legal trouble since. She had a bank account in the past, but had difficulty remembering to pay her bills. Her current income is SSDI at $ a month. She is on Medicaid and has no idea if she would qualify for Medicare. She lived independently in the community before her accident.

11 Identification & Referrals Potential MFP individuals are primarily identified through the following mechanisms:Local or Regional OmbudsmanSelf-Referral from individuals or familiesNursing facility or provider staffOther agenciesHFS online MFP/Pathways’ referral formSODC closures (DDD specific)Class action lawsuits1111
12 MFP/Pathways Referral Process Submission of online referrals starts the MFP process.If there are no issues with the referral data, it will be routed directly to the agency based on routing rules. If there are issues (e.g. data discrepancies, no RIN), the referral will be processed by HFS and manually distributed.Once a referral is passed to an agency for follow-up, it becomes a “Case” in the WebApp. Cases are linked to a individual – meaning a individual can have multiple cases but all are linked together in CRM/WebApp.
13 MFP/Pathways Referral Process Initial contacts cannot be entered in CRM without a referral.New referrals from HFS need to be followed up on within 10 days of receiving the referral.Referrals can be sent back to HFS if they need follow up from a different state agency.Referrals are entered here: https://mfp.hfs.illinois.gov/mfpreferral.aspx
14 Conducting Case (First) Contact Determine if the referral has a legal guardian.Determine if there is a family member/significant other who is actively involved in their care.Maintain privacy and confidentiality when meeting with the referral.Inform referral of the reason for your visit.Describe your role, the MFP/Pathways program and the type of housing, services and supports available to them in the community. For more information, visitProvide referral and/or guardian with a copy of the MFP/Pathways brochure and your contact information.An MFP first contact is considered a face-to-face meeting unless the referral’s guardian is located outside the local area.Will the TC know if someone has a guardian via online referral form?14
15 Complete Case Contacts The First contact date is shown here.Click “+” to add a new Case Contact.All Case contacts are listed here.Click the “Name” link to view a contact.
16 Case Contacts: Not in the Facility If you find out from the institutional care setting staff that the individual you are trying to contact hasbecome deceased orhas moved out of the facility…Complete a case contact to document this outcome.This closes the loop on the referral.
17 Informed ConsentCompleted when individual indicates he or she would like to enroll and plans to transition to the community through MFP/Pathways.Two original copies must be signed and dated by the individual (or proxy or guardian) prior to transition in order for the individual’s transition to be valid for MFP.One copy is given to individual/guardianOne copy is kept for TC’s file
18 Informed Consent = MFP Enrollment A individual is enrolled if, and only if, the individual (and/or guardian) has agreed to participate in MFP by signing the Informed Consent document.The date of the individual’s signature on the Informed Consent is the date of enrollment. (There is no more Form B).If the individual or guardian no longer wishes to sign the informed consent, document this by completing a new case contact since the individual is no longer “Considering MFP”.
19 Advance to Informed Consent Stage vance to Informed Consent Stage After you have documented that a potential individual is Considering MFP, you can advance to the next stage of the transition planning process.Click the “Next Stage” button in CRM to advance to the Informed Consent stage (move the blue flag!).
20 Release of Information At the time of receiving informed consent, determine if the individual has any family/friends/ significant others that they want to be part of the transition planning process.If someone is identified, have the individual sign a release of information to permit you to speak with that person(s).Also, obtain a release of information for formal and/or informal providers involved in the individual’s care.This release of information can be uploaded as an attachment in CRM.
23 Comprehensive Assessment Assessment is the first essential function of the care management process.Assessment is an organized, multidimensional process by which the care manager, through interaction with the individual, significant others, guardian, healthcare providers, review of facility record, agency assessments, and Medicaid claims data, collects and analyzes in-depth information on domains including demographics; individual’s goals, likes or dislikes; cognition/comprehension; diagnoses; substance use; utilization; medications; health; social history; functional status; safety issues, and; self-management skills.23

46 UIC Case ReviewAll pre-transition documentation should be completed prior to requesting a case review.A case review is completed by UIC prior to transition and sent to all parties involved in the individual’s transition. Including Managed Care Organization (MCO) staffA case review call is scheduled and occurs within 60 days prior to the individual transitioning. (If individual does not transition within 60 days after the completion of case review, then another case review will be scheduled.)The case review will cover Medicaid claims data, risk inventory and mitigation plan, and risk status and risk categorization.A list of clinical questions and action plan items will be included in the case review.This is the time to ask questions regarding the individual’s diagnoses, medications, or other necessary supports and services.
47 Poll QuestionWhat mitigation strategies would be in your service plan to address the identified risk of limited social support with an individual diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder.Answer optionsArrange and monitor caregiver services.Provide contact numbers to peer support groups in the community.Arrange transportation as needed.Arrange weekly counseling session with a mental health provider.

60 Post-Transition Update (Form E) Is completedwhen a new risk assessment/inventory is completed that requires a change in the Mitigation Planwhen there is a change in residence addresswhen there is a change in waiver or demonstration serviceswhen there are calls for emergency back-up (e.g., If a TC finds a individual had to use their back-up plan for transportation, caregiver, meal services, or emergency ambulance transport).
61 Disenrollment/Withdrawal (Form D) Occurs anytime a individual is no longer enrolledA individual is no longer eligible or interested in transitioning.Once a transitioned individual has beenre-institutionalized for 30 days.Occurs only if an Informed Consent has been signed
62 Re-transition after Re-institutionalization If a individual was re-institutionalized for greater than 30 days after transition and before his/her MFP graduation date, then he/she is eligible to re-transition with MFP and use the remainder of the days left on his/her MFP clock.
63 Re-Enrollment: Post 365 Days MFP OverviewRe-Enrollment: Post 365 DaysIf an individual completes 365 days in the community and has been re-institutionalized in a qualified institution (e.g., nursing facility) for 90 days or more, then TC can start a new record for the individual, complete the enrollment and transition process again.63
64 In SummaryTransition coordinators have a vital and complex role in success of individuals transitioning to the community from institutional care settings.64
