In this 45-page resource, learn how the identification of high-risk patients, meaningful distribution of healthcare data and collaborations with like-minded organizations are increasing medical home profitability for three healthcare organizations including one that has been touted as "the gold standard for healthcare reform:"

Get inside details on Grand Junction, Colorado's shared savings model an approach that first gained notoriety when The New Yorker contrasted its low-cost, high-quality delivery with one of the most expensive healthcare systems in the country. Grand Junction hospitalist, family physician and healthcare consultant Dr. David West shares the four strategies that have helped to hone the area's cost efficiencies in the face of physician shortages, high numbers of uninsured and many of the same challenges faced by healthcare systems around the country.

Dr. Jeff Schiff, medical director of Minnesota healthcare programs for the Minnesota Department of Human Services, describes the state's risk-adjusted reimbursement model for medical homes. Dr. Schiff dissects the risk-adjusted methodology at work in Minnesota, where health plans are required by law to include healthcare or medical homes in their networks. The delivery system has a built-in payment reform that reflects the patient's complexity and the time required by the medical home to care for complex patients. This novel approach to management of chronic disease is showing early returns of improved outcomes and reduced costs.

Sharing lessons learned from Colorado's nearly three years of participation in a multi-state multi-payor medical home pilot is Julie Schilz, co-chair of the Center for Multi-Stakeholder Demonstrations and IPIP manager for the Colorado Clinical Guidelines Collaborative. Ms. Schilz describes four key considerations for a multi-payor medical home program from establishing demonstration guidelines and gaining stakeholders' support to considerations for payment reform and alignment of demonstration goals. Drawing upon the benefits of her experience since initially presenting the multi-payor pilot in 2007, Ms. Schilz also addresses the practicalities of practice recruitment and screening, the pilot's three-pronged reimbursement model and the challenges of integrating paricipating practices into a medical home neighborhood.
