1 Overview Community Care of North Carolina

2 Our Vision and Key Principles  Develop a better healthcare system for NC starting with public payers  Strong primary care is foundational to a high performing healthcare system  Additional resources needed to help primary care providers manage population health  Timely data is essential to success  Must build better local healthcare systems via public-private partnerships  Physician leadership is critical  Improve the quality of the care provided and cost will come down  A risk model is not essential to success, shared accountability is  Need to implement a patient-centered model of care 2

3 Primary Goals of Community Care  Improve the care of the enrolled population while controlling costs  Create a “medical home” for patients, emphasizing primary care  Build community networks capable of managing beneficiary care  Establish local systems that improve management of chronic illness in both rural and urban settings

4 Community Care Provides North Carolina with:  Statewide medical home & care management system to address quality, utilization and cost  100 percent of all Medicaid savings remain in state  A private sector Medicaid management solution that improves access and quality of care  Medicaid savings that are achieved in partnership with – rather than in opposition to – doctors, hospitals and other providers.

6 Community Care: “How it works”  Primary care medical home serving 1.2 million Medicaid and Health Choice recipients in all 100 counties.  Provides 4,500 local primary care physicians (PCPs) -- 94% of all NC PCPs-- with resources to better manage Medicaid population  Links local community providers (health systems, hospitals, health departments and other community providers) to primary care physicians  Every network provides local care managers (600), pharmacists (26), psychiatrists (14) and medical directors (20) to improve local health care delivery

7 How it Works, cont.  The state identifies priorities and provides financial support through an enhanced per member per month (PMPM )payments to community networks  14 local networks pilot potential solutions and monitor implementation  Networks voluntarily share best practice solutions, best practices are spread to other networks  The state provides the networks (CCNC)access to data  Cost savings / effectiveness are evaluated by the state and third-party consultants (Mercer, Treo Solutions)

8 Community Care Networks  Are non-profit organizations  Seek to incorporate all providers, including safety net providers  Have Medical Management Committee oversight  Receive a PM/PM from the State for most enrollees  Hire care management staff to work with enrollees and PCPs  Participating PCPs receive a PM/PM to provide a medical home and participate in Disease Management and Quality Improvement

9 Each CCNC Network Has:  A Clinical Director  A physician who is well known in the community  Works with network physicians to build compliance with CCNC care improvement objectives  Provides oversight for quality improvement in practices  Serves on the State Clinical Directors Committee

10 Each CCNC Network Also Has:  A Network Director who manages daily operations  Care Managers to help coordinate services for enrollees/practices  A PharmD to assist with Medication Management of high cost patients  A Psychiatrist & Behavioral Health Coordinator to assist with mental health integration  Palliative Care and Pregnancy Home Coordinators  Social Work support

11 Patient Benefits to Participating in Medical Home  Help patient really understand chronic condition and how to manage it  Help overcome barriers to managing health  Help with transitions  Help get right screenings and preventive services  Refer & coordinate care with specialists  Help patient remain healthy – promote nutrition, exercise and stress reduction

12 Cont.
