Home Visits for Clinically Complex Patients: Targeting Transitional Care for Maximum Outcomes and ROI

Home Visits for Clinically Complex Patients: Targeting
Transitional Care for Maximum Outcomes and ROI

To optimize ROI and results, transitional care should target patients with multiple, chronic or catastrophic conditions rather than applied as a one-size-fits-all intervention.

This philosophy that transitional care is better for some patients than others drives the award-winning Community Care of North Carolina (CCNC) care transition management program. The ten-year-old program identifies patients most likely to benefit from these resource-intensive interventions, as well as those who won't.

The CCNC transitional care (TC) approach for North Carolina Medicaid beneficiaries with multiple chronic conditions resulted in more than 2,200 fewer readmissions and 8,000 fewer inpatient admissions in 2014 as compared to 2008. The program was awarded the inaugural Hearst Health Prize for Population Health in early 2016.

This 25-page special report provides the following details:

  • Statistical methods for determining the population likely to meaningfully benefit from transitional care;
  • The typical CCNC transitional care high-priority patient;
  • Flagging TC priority patients for home visits;
  • Comparison of time to readmission for TC patients versus non-TC patients, by severity of conditions;
  • Impact of home visits on TC priority readmissions, inpatient admissions, future cost and ROI;
  • Identifying overlooked populations for transitional care (cancer and multiple physical ailments, psychiatric conditions);
  • Relative impact of different face-to-face patient encounters on readmissions among TC priority patients;
  • Examples of lower intensity transitional care support;
  • Going beyond readmission metrics to measure impact of transitional care;
