From our colleagues at The SCAN Foundation: 

New Avalere research for The SCAN Foundation demonstrates the ROI potential of well-targeted care coordination programs supported by robust data.

In a new report on effective care management of high-risk Medicare beneficiaries, our Avalere experts make the case for three key best practice strategies.

1. Identify the full range of risk factors: Exclusive focus on medical conditions limits a plan’s ability to identify and manage spending for the members most likely to incur the highest Medicare costs.

2. Improve data collection with a well-developed health risk assessment: Improve risk stratification and care coordination targeting by investing in the HRA process as a source of powerful, relevant member information.

3. Implement targeted care coordination programs to drive outcomes and ROI: Our analysis has revealed the potential for substantial cost savings when transitions are managed care the care continuum of care.
