7 Main problems facing current HIO Near one half of population has no health insurance coverage Different laws & systems dealing with beneficiaries The more laws the less justice, Marcus Tullius Cicero Unrealistic rates of premium that have been fixed and unchanged since 1964 (financial sustainability is at risk) HIO is the payer and service provider

8 Health insurance reform in Egypt Aiming at: Universal coverage Sustainable financing resources High level quality health care Unifying the laws Payer/provider split

9 HIO will be EXCLUSIVELY a payer HIO will no longer operate hospitals or clinics HIO will contract with health care facilities to provide care to HIO beneficiaries HIO must ensure compliance with contract requirements and accreditation standards relating to quality and safety In the near future …

10 Being the payer, HIO must ensure that the care for which it pays for is: Medically Necessary Appropriate (means that the treatment proposed is the one most likely to be effective for the patients condition) of High Quality Provided Efficiently Safe In the near future …

11 To ensure those dimensions of care, HIO must have: A Medical Management Process Medical Auditing Utilization and Case Management In the near future …

12 Utilization management: Definition Technique used by the payer of health care to manage costs (primarily a financial tool ) through analysis of the medical necessity and appropriateness of care, including appropriateness of: Admission Treatment and investigations Length of stay Discharge (criteria – needs)

14 Case management: Meet the patients health needs efficiently Concurrent Review, during hospital stay Is a collaborative and communicative process of the assessment, planning, and facilitation of the services by assessing: Any delays in treatment, investigations, or consultation Length of stay (LOS) Discharge needs Discharge criteria

15 Special case management Comprehensive contact with patient and family during and after hospitalization To optimize care for HIO members with complex or chronic medical needs Intent is to reduce frequency of hospitalization or emergency room visits

16 Primarily a f inancial tool Supports quality care Unnecessary admissions or procedures places patients at risk Helps identify complications and adverse outcomes Why utilization and case management?

17 Reduces financial risk of inappropriate use of services (excessive LOS – delayed investigations – delayed consultation) Most important to the risk-bearing entity (HIO or hospitals) 1. Critical to the hospital if they receive Package Price 2. Critical to HIO for those cases when they pay Fee for Service
