In Hospitals in a Medical Home: Partners in Enhancing Access, Health Status and Cost Avoidance, the director of a medical home network demonstrates how hospitals can partner with medical homes to deliver patient-centered care to uninsured and low-income patients while reaping the financial benefits associated with decreased utilization and duplication of services.

Richland Care Director Marcus Barnes describes how Palmetto Health, the largest healthcare system in South Carolina, developed and launched a network of 12 medical homes that achieved an average cost avoidance of $707,000 per 12-month period. Barnes explains how eight-year-old Richland Care provides an integrated healthcare delivery system for low-income uninsured residents of Richland County improving access to care, creating a healthier community and lessening the bottleneck in the ED.

In this 25-page special report, Barnes describes how Richland Care functions as a health navigator, guiding patients to the specific health resources they need to help keep them healthy from two hospital systems in Richland County as well as satellite behavioral health, substance abuse and community agencies.
