Chronic Care Management Design Pioneered by Edward H. Wagner, MD, MPH and colleagues at MacColl Institute for Healthcare Innovation at Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound, Seattle Washington* Supported by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation** *Wagner, E.H. (1998). Chronic disease management. What will it take to improve care for chronic illness? Effective Clinical Practice, 1, 2-4. **Improving Chronic illness Care (ICIC) is a national program supported by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation with direction and technical assistance by Group Health Cooperative’s MacColl Institute for Healthcare Innovation.

Mobilize Community Resources Patients participate in effective community programs Form partnerships to fill gaps in needed services and avoid duplicating efforts Advocate for policies to improve patient care
Health System – Organization of Care Improvement at all levels of the organization Promote effective strategies Open and systematic handling of errors and quality issues to improve care Provide incentives based on quality of care Facilitate care coordination within and across organizations
Self-Management Support Patient has a central role in managing health Self-management support strategies – Assessment, goal- setting, action planning, problem solving, and follow-up Community resources to support self- management
Delivery System Design Define roles and distribute task Planned interactions for evidence-based care Clinical case management services for complex patients Regular provider initiated follow-up Cultural sensitive care
Decision Support Daily practice of evidence-based care Share clinical guidelines and information with patients* Provide professional education Integrate specialty and primary care *Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality – National Guideline Clearinghouse http://www.guideline.gov
Clinical Information Systems Timely reminders for providers and patients Identify subpopulations for proactive care Facilitate individual patient care planning Share information Monitor outcomes Continuous Quality Improvement Registry tracks individuals and populations
Chronic Care Management Programs Comprehensive system change Targeting Case management
Primary Care Delivery System Traditional Provide acute care Diagnostic and laboratory services Treatment of signs and symptoms Prescriptions Brief education Short appointments Patient-initiated follow-up
Delivery System Redesign Traditional Provide acute care Diagnostic and laboratory Services Treatment of signs and symptoms Prescriptions Brief education Short appointments Patient-initiated follow- up Reconfigured Developed processes for CD Incentives for making changes Extensive patient education to increase patient’s confidence and skills Provider-initiated appointments and follow-up Evidence-based guidelines and provider interaction Information Systems
Targeting Approach Correctly assumes a small percent of the population accounts for most health care costs Possible to reduce cost based on this method However, health status changes occur frequently “Targeting” misses a substantial portion of the population at risk
Case Management Approach Many programs include: Brief hospitalization Low intensity follow-up care Conduct utilization review Chronic Care Management advocates for: Access to services that are proven to improve outcomes
Examples: Missouri’s Chronic Health Care Indicators, BRFSS, 2004 69.1% of seniors (age 65+) received a flu shot in past 12 months 65.2% of adults with diabetes test their blood sugar at least once daily 55.6% of adults with diabetes have participated in a course or class to manage their diabetes 52.8% of adults (age 50+) have ever had a lower endoscopy exam 39.9% of adults with arthritis have received a suggestion from their health care provider to exercise or engage in physical activity to help their joint symptoms (2003)
Example: Medicaid A web-based system to help fee-for- service Medicaid patients manage chronic conditions Integrate APS Healthcare’s CareConnection application with a chronic care improvement program Product – “collaborative medical record” Accessible to patients, providers and health care coaches The Advisory Board Company. (2006) Missouri creates web-based chronic care system. iHealth Beat. Retrieved June 20, 2006 from http://www.ihealthbeat.org
Incentives Vary across provider organization May reduce patient expenses May also reduce profitable inpatient care Poorly reimbursed preventive services Performance related to defined quality goals Providers - / + Provider groups with full-capitation + Health Plans (deliver returns within 6-12 mo) ++ Purchasers / Employers +++ Governmental entities ++++ + greater incentive to engage in disease management

Chronic Care Management Regular visits with health providers Focus on function Prevent exacerbations and complications Emphasizes self-management Ensures access to services proven to improve outcomes Establishes links through time with information systems Follow-up initiated by medical provider Improved Health Status Overarching Goal
In Summary Chronic care management offers improved health status for many with chronic diseases Chronic illness care should be based on the best available evidence Need consistent quality measures and additional research in the various models
