What Is the Top Criteria To Identify Patients Who Need Care Plans? Detailed evidence-based care plans that follow high-risk patients through episodes and transitions of care help these individuals and their providers assess the necessary level of care, evaluate available services and empower patients with goals of care, impacting care quality and health outcomes and enhancing patient experience and engagement, according to the 2016 Healthcare Benchmarks: Care Plans. The chief criterion for classifying patients in need of care plans is data obtained from health risk assessments (HRAs), say nearly two-thirds of respondents, but patients transitioning between care sites also are prioritized for care planning, note 61 percent. The survey also identified six additional factors used to identify patients who would benefit from care plans.
