Identifying the right members for care management can make or break a care management program. For these programs to be successful and yield sustainable, positive returns on investment, it is critical to identify members who would benefit most from the program: members whose risk and engagement trajectory best match the services offered by care management services.
Decision Point’s supports both field and traditional care management activities with independent member identification algorithms that proactively evaluate members based on their clinical, behavioral and engagement risk.
For field care management, Decision Point identifies members with a high probability of avoidable, high-intensity resource use, high probability of functional status decline and low predicted provider engagement. These members would benefit most from home-based care management resources. For traditional care management, it is simply not enough to predict members who are predicted to have the highest cost: Decision Point predicts members that are predicted to have an undesirable disease trajectory, predicted to be actionable, and predicted to be high clinical risk.
Decision Point’s approach is unique: we provide solutions which help ensure timely care matches an individual’s actual needs with available programs and resources. We do this by rapidly identifying the health care profiles and needs of individuals, matching those needs with available resources and care improvement programs, and providing tools to track, manage and evaluate the care provided to these individuals. In short, we ensure that the right individuals are targeted for the right care at the right time.
