The Integrated Care Team (ICT) supports and coordinates care on day 1 for your highest risk employees. Unlike standard case management, which begins at hospital discharge, the ICT gets involved upon admission to identify each patient’s condition early on.
The ICT works to empower utilization management nurses, case managers, and medical directors to manage care more holistically, thereby responding to each high-cost member’s care more efficiently.
On average, this early intervention can save over $800 per case.*
The Integrated Care Team uses a proprietary, artificial intelligence Member Listening System to identify early employees who have higher risk factors. In real time, they begin intensive case management to enhance their inpatient experience and provide for a more appropriate level of care.
Here's how the Integrated Care Team works:
When your employees have care advocates, they feel empowered and supported. Plus, your company can drastically lower its medical costs by reducing length of stay, inappropriate care settings, readmissions, and most importantly, creating an atmosphere for a higher degree of accuracy in forecasting risk. This enables your employees to be more productive and get back to work and life much sooner.
Better care means more savings opportunities.
