One of the greatest challenges in health care is the improvement of outcomes for high-risk, complex populations – a group that drives an overwhelming share of utilization and spending.

As health plans, health systems and physicians look to address this population’s needs through greater emphasis on care management programs, they are discovering that it is essential to interact directly with patients in their homes. Extending care management into the home gives these organizations the ability to improve the effectiveness of the care they provide by:

  • Developing a true, comprehensive view of a patient’s needs, based on their condition, lifestyle and their environment, revealing key drivers impacting care management
  • Allowing clinicians to identify and develop approaches to address non-clinical barriers to improved care, such as functional, cognitive and social needs
  • Improving alignment and delivery of home-based care services – most notably, home care – which can reduce the need for expensive institutional utilization
  • Addressing long term care services and support needs
  • Empowering and engaging the patient, family and caregivers by providing self-management tools and training support

This home-based component, especially for those with complex needs, is the crucial link of connectivity for care management efforts.

Univita’s comprehensive care model extends the effectiveness of care management activities into the home.

Our comprehensive approach to home-based care management addresses and manages the complete array of a patient’s care needs – including both clinical and non-clinical drivers of health outcomes. By coordinating and managing ongoing care for patients with the most complex needs – whether the population is managed Medicare or Medicaid, commercial, or dual eligible – we’ve delivered improved health outcomes and lowered health care costs.

To learn more about how we extend care management into the home, roll over each of the key components of Univita’s cost-effective and scalable care model.

These programs can be used individually to address gaps or expansion strategies, or together to deliver focused and integrated support for health plans, long-term care insurers, at-risk providers and other population risk managers.
