What are we trying to accomplish here? Identify WHY patients over-utilize the hospital: Build a model around the WHY Stabilize, Coordinate, Improve Care, Reduce Cost Reduce ER visits and Inpatient stays through a community intervention
Helping people one at a time to empower themselves with tools, knowledge, and confidence to take responsibility for their own physical and psychological health. The Bridges to Care Vision
Bridges to Care Model Hybrid of the Hospital Discharge, ED, Home, and Community Based Models Intervention begins at bedside 60 day model: Patient graduates from the program 8 visits minimum Collect information at each step to evaluate/improve program Inclusion/Exclusion Criteria MCPN’s model includes 2 unique components
Criteria INCLUSION Live in Aurora 3 Hospital Visits (ER & IP) in last 6 months Adults Non-violent offenders, homeless, BH are all ok EXCLUSION Acute visits (?) Pregnancy HIV (?) Malignancies Primary dx of personality disorder Post-surgical Primary diagnoses of substance abuse Diminished capacity Pediatrics Violent offenders/sex offenders Care giver as primary decision maker or Power of Attorney
Outcomes/Deliverables 1. Enroll our 689 patients 2. Demonstrate cost savings - Reduce re-hospitalizations - Decrease Illness Burden 3. Transition patients from home visits to clinic visits 4. Establish health homes for patients 5. Demonstrate sustainability/develop a sustainability plan

What We Already Know About Cost Savings “Health centers save $1,263 per person per year, lowering costs across the delivery system‒from ambulatory care settings to the emergency department to hospital stays” Source: NACHC analysis based on Ku L et al. Using Primary Care to Bend the Curve: Estimating the Impact of a Health Center Expansion on Health Care Costs. GWU Department of Health Policy. Policy Research Brief No. 14. September 2009.
Lessons Learned You need good people to do hard work! Systems are not designed for innovative work! Chances are no one has gotten this far before! Sometimes being a gardner is all you can do! Be realistic about what change means! Buy in is crucial, it just may not always come from the top or look the way you envisioned!
