What are the key services and delivery messages for organizations offering care coordination to stay relevant?
Over the course of the last eight years, Medicaid has moved away from traditional care management and evolved into a ‘learning center’ for whole-person care coordination models such as health homes and certified community-based behavioral health clinics. These models can—and will—change how consumers receive care and understand treatment and how provider organizations deliver care and bill for services.
As organizations are taking on this more complicated role—which includes technology linkages to other organizations, population health management, care teams, outcomes reporting, and value-based payment models—it is imperative that they have the right technology. Without technology, the time spent managing these processes and the inability to course correct will eventually lead to failure.
This white paper provides an analysis of the role technology plays in value-based health care and care coordination, and how it relates to health homes and CCBHCs. To help the reader fully understand how the value-based model fits this topic, Streamline provides a breakdown of CCBHCs and health homes—similarities, differences, and what they offer to consumers. This white paper also addresses important next steps and guides the reader toward looking at the “bigger picture” when considering technology, data, and the value-based model for care coordination.
