By identifying changes in functional status, which lead to decline among the elderly population who have various chronic illnesses, healthcare organizations can intervene to prevent emergency room visits and hospital inpatient stays.

Fallon Community Health Plan (FCHP), along with the Fallon Clinic are not only reducing healthcare utilization through this strategy, but also maintaining optimal function and preventing or delaying further decline for these patients and reporting a healthy return on investment on program costs. Identifying Functional Decline in Chronic Care Patients To Reduce Preventable Healthcare Utilization

During Identifying Functional Decline in Chronic Care Patients To Reduce Preventable Healthcare Utilization, a 45-minute webinar on April 27th at 1:30 pm Eastern Time, you’ll hear from Patricia Zinkus, director of case management, and Susan Legacy, senior manager of case management at FCHP on how they identify Medicare Advantage members at risk of high utilization, the strategies they’ve implemented to reduce this utilization and the outcomes and cost savings achieved by FCHP.

You will get the inside details on:

  • The key identifiers of frail elderly patients at high risk of preventable healthcare utilization;
  • The critical components of the FCHP "Home Run Program" that keeps these patients in their home and improves their functional living status;
  • The collaborative, risk-sharing model for the program that includes the health plan, Fallon Community Health Clinic and a local VNA that creates a multi-disciplinary team to meet the needs of the patient; and
  • The program's impact on patient satisfaction, emergency room use, hospital and skilled nursing facility admissions and readmissions and cost savings.
