Description

After experiencing a 40 percent year-over-year increase in uncompensated care costs, Baptist Health of Montgomery, Ala., threw out its old healthcare playbook and began to tightly manage uncompensated care for five chronic diseases through a medical home approach.

Using a “three-legged stool" approach that includes a medical home, free medications and case management, Baptist has quickly achieved a 2-to-1 return on investment with this patient-centered approach.

Listen to pre-conference comments from Dr. Ricardo Guggenheim and Robin Barca.

During Reducing Uncompensated Care Costs for the Chronically Ill Through a Medical Home Approach: A Health System Case Study, a 60-minute webinar on July 16, 2009, now available as a CD-ROM, via On Demand Web access or as a training DVD, Robin Barca, senior vice president and chief operating officer for Baptist Health, and Dr. Ricardo Guggenheim, vice president of care management services at McKesson Health Solutions, described how, with a small up-front investment, Baptist was able to manage its health system costs more effectively and provide care for these chronic diseases in more appropriate settings.

You’ll hear how Baptist stratified individuals for participation in the pilot, overcame challenges presented by patient distrust and engaged patients enrolled in the program. You’ll also learn about future plans for the program including how Baptist sees the program positioning itself for the future healthcare system.
