Infographic: Blueprint for Complex Care

January 11th, 2019 by Melanie Matthews

The United States spends more on healthcare than any other industrialized nation, and much of that spending is concentrated on a small percentage of individuals with complex medical, behavioral, and social needs, according to a new infographic by the Center for Health Care Strategies.

The infographic highlights recommendations for advancing the field, based on input from stakeholders across the country.

Care Coordination of Highest-Risk Patients: Business Case for Managing Complex Populations Asked by its C-suite to quantify contributions of its multidisciplinary care team for its highest-risk patients, AltaMed Health Services Corporation readily identified seven key performance metrics associated with the team.

Infographic: How Housing Affordability Matters in Healthcare

January 9th, 2019 by Melanie Matthews

Housing affordability is a social determinant of health. A lack of affordable housing contributes to housing instability and homelessness, both of which are strong predictors of higher healthcare costs and poor health outcomes, according to a new infographic by the State Health Access Data Assistance Center.

The infographic breaks down the issue of unaffordable rents and explores how state Medicaid policy can alleviate the burden of unaffordable rents.

Homelessness and Healthcare: Creating a Safety Net for Super Utilizers with Medical Bridge HousingChronic homelessness and chronic illness often go hand in hand; individuals struggling with housing insecurity frequently suffer a range of health problems that require hospitalization. Unfortunately, lacking stable housing where they can recuperate renders these newly discharged patients more likely to return to the hospital.

Recognizing that housing is healthcare, many healthcare organizations, particularly hospitals, now seek ways to address this social determinant of health (SDOH) by identifying housing barriers in their communities and developing initiatives to improve housing availability.

Homelessness and Healthcare: Creating a Safety Net for Super Utilizers with Medical Bridge Housing spotlights a California partnership that provides medical ‘bridge’ housing to homeless patients following hospitalization. This recuperative care initiative reduced avoidable hospital readmissions and ER visits and significantly lowered costs for the collaborating organizations.
