5  Facilitating discussion and strategy design  Collaboration among stakeholders  Creating fluid systems of communication  Data-driven initiatives  Utilizing data to evaluate projects  Sustaining programs for long-term positive outcomes Organizational Values

7  Reduce the risk of preventable readmissions to the hospital  No open referrals: patients flagged from Health Information Exchange by Care Transitions Team  No duplicate services: we compliment services of existing providers Care Transitions & Care Management Team Program Goals

8 Care Management: High Risk  Hospital utilization in the city  Appropriate vs. inappropriate  Two or more chronic health conditions  Low socio-economic status  Homeless or unstable housing  Lack of social supports  Low-literacy, lack of HS diploma  Behavioral health issues  Generational poverty/urban violence

9 Care Management Team Purpose  Improve the health of the patients  Teach patients to seek services from appropriate locations, especially their Primary Care Providers, rather than the ED  Reduce healthcare costs Services Offered  Assess the individual’s needs  Provides immediate healthcare/social services when needed  Refers patients to their PCP and appropriate agencies for additional services  Outreach to homes, shelters, hospitals and even the streets to provide services

10 The Role of the Social Worker  Coordinates case management of the patient’s care including:  Short-term needs: temporary housing, food  Determining insurance eligibility or level of coverage and helps with enrollment  Helps the patient access social/health services such as:  Enrollment in a medical day program, applying for nursing home care, and accessing specialty care  Assists in applying for Supplemental Security Income, Disability or other entitlements as needed

11 The Role of the RN  Monitoring chronic conditions  Oversight of medications/prescribing  Communicating with other providers regarding the patient’s care  Patients typically have multiple social barriers to accessing traditional healthcare-the nurse encourages and transitions these clients into traditional primary care

12 The Role of the Medical Assistant & Health Coaches  A bilingual outreach worker  Works directly with the social worker and nurse in helping patients access appropriate health/social services  Helps patients make appointments/coordinate medical transportation and can accompany patients to appointments, as necessary  Two full-time volunteers working with the Care Management Team assisting with approximately 10-12 patients at a time  Reinforce positive behavior changes  Conducts social visits to monitor patient progress and provide additional support before “graduation.”

13 Intake/Engagement Process  Obtain consent  Conduct medical and social history  Immediately identify barriers/reasons for increased ED/hospital visits  Unstable housing/homeless  No/changing phone #  Lack of health insurance/benefits  Substance use/mental health issues  Transportation  Implement immediate plan with patient to address short-term goals, while building trust and rapport to address long-term goals
