We share four benefits of introducing technology and automation to your care management program.
What often gets in the way of providing truly effective care management? The usual suspects are sluggish manual processes, poor quality data and inadequate workflow technologies. But when you leverage actionable data, introduce smarter workflows and use evidence-based solutions that bring industry-leading automation to care management, everyone benefits. Here are four ways:
1. Achieve the Goals of Your Care Management Program
Solve many of the challenges care management teams and those in charge of them face:
- Timely identification of individuals who will most benefit from care management
- Proactive engagement across the care ecosystem
- Continuity of care along the entirety of the patient journey
- Collaboration among all members of the care team
- Effective care management for multiple comorbidities
- Ability to demonstrate the impact and benefits of care management
- Coordinate care while controlling costs
- Job satisfaction and retention of care managers
2. Improve Patient Outcomes
With a 360-degree view of an individual’s health, shared across the care ecosystem, care teams can make better data-driven decisions. The right care gets to the right people at the right time. And patients feel guided and empowered to take a more proactive role in their health, which can improve health outcomes and build brand loyalty.
3. Boost the Bottom Line
Optimized workflows help the organization meet regulatory mandates for quality and timeliness, avoid penalties, prevent wasteful spending on operational inefficiencies, and reduce network leakage. Plus, with greater efficiency, organizations can scale care management programs and serve more consumers while keeping costs contained.
4. Drive Provider and Consumer Satisfaction
Introducing automation wherever possible reduces administrative burdens, allows teams to focus resources where clinical judgment is truly needed, and ensures care teams and providers can operate at top of license. It also reduces the wait time patients experience for services, approvals and referrals. In turn, this can improve consumer satisfaction, which can translate into more positive scores on customer satisfaction surveys like CAHPS.
