Description

Aetna's Compassionate Care Program, a case management program that specifically targets patients with advanced illness, has had an enormous impact on the number of inpatient stays, average length of stay, emergency room visits, ICU days and hospice selection rate for the patients it serves, according to a study published in the Journal of Palliative Medicine.

During Advanced Illness Care Coordination: A Case Study on Aetna's Compassionate Care Program, a 45-minute webinar on June 13, 2012, now available for replay Dr. Joseph Agostini, senior medical director, Aetna Medicare, shares the key features of the Compassionate Care Program at Aetna, along with the impact the program has had on healthcare utilization and quality outcomes.

You will learn:

  • How providing information, tools and resources contributes to higher quality of care for those with advanced illness;
  • Best practices and barriers that commonly arise during the care of advanced illness patients;
  • Patient identification and engagement techniques, including the use of motivational interviewing to improve communication and goal attainment;
  • How a member centric system, which includes case management and other clinical assessments helps case managers address the holistic needs of the patients; and
  • Results from the program that illustrate the program's impact at the best intersection of quality and cost.
