March 18th, 2016 by Melanie Matthews

Hospitals and integrated health delivery networks (IDNs) are continuing to invest in new technologies that support collaborative care across the continuum, according to 2013-2015 surveys conducted by HIMSS Analytics on behalf of Philips Healthcare, depicted in a new infographic by Philips.

The infographic examines the major goals of connected care and how these hospitals and IDNs are looking to cloud-based technology to tackle scalability and cost challenges.

Collaborative Health Systems (CHS), the largest sponsor of Medicare Shared Savings ACOs in the United States, manages 24 ACOs, nine of which generated savings of nearly $27 million in 2014. While data analytics and integration is one of the greatest challenges for most accountable care organizations, the capture, analysis and reporting of data is the key to ACO success in improving quality, reducing costs and generating savings.

During Data Analytics in Accountable Care: Strategies and Case Studies, a 45-minute webinar on January 27th, now available for replay, Elena Tkachev, director of ACO analytics, Collaborative Health Systems, shares her organization’s experience in using data analytics effectively to improve ACO results.

6 Criteria for Remote Patient Monitoring Applications in Managed Care

July 10th, 2014 by Cheryl Miller

Among the six criteria that Humana uses to evaluate vendors for remote patient monitoring applications are reducing medical costs and generating a positive ROI at a program level, says Gail Miller, vice president of telephonic clinical operations in Humana’s care management organization, Humana Cares/SeniorBridge. Applicants have a tough bar to pass, because programs not only have to work, they have to work better on those already being care managed.

First, we put together criteria for what we wanted to do in a managed care application. We were looking at reducing medical cost and generating positive return on investments (ROIs) at a program level. Our studies are more difficult to set up because all these people are under care management. Whenever anyone is going to work with us, they have to understand that they have a tough bar to pass, because not only does the program have to work, it also has to work better on someone who is already being care managed. We are looking for that incremental lift that we could get from remote monitoring.

Everything has to be customer friendly and easily adaptable to our members’ lifestyles. We want our members to feel rewarded by their efforts to monitor their health. We want to involve the members, physicians, caregivers and families so that everybody in the care circle is included, and we want to test with little disruption to our large organization.

We have more than 2,000 nurses and social workers on the telephone. This is something that you have to consider to introduce new pieces of technology, in addition to considering how you are going to put it into your operational stream. We have been able to do that. We decided to move forward with this new care management model using all of the tools that we had and to extend our reach by using remote monitoring.

We were specifically looking for remote monitoring technology to help our members manage their conditions, to reduce hospitalizations, and to improve their consumer experience. We have nine remote monitoring care management pilots underway. We have a tenth pilot that is in development. People have to consent to both care management for Humana Cares as well participation for the pilot.

The member selection for our remote monitoring program was based on complex clinical analysis. There was no additional cost to our members to participate in these pilots, and the equipment that we use is considered a loan to the member for the duration of the pilot or as long as they are members of Humana if that pilot is rolled out.
