With a wide range of needs beyond traditional healthcare that can impact the health status of dual eligibles, organizations that serve the dual eligible population often look to community-based resources to help close social service gaps for these members.
Wellcare Health Plan Inc. has developed a unique approach to identify, connect and sustain community service agencies in its markets.
Listen to pre-conference comments from Pamme Taylor.
During Dual Eligibles: Closing Care Gaps and Engaging Members in Self-Management, an October 2, 2013 webinar, now available for replay, Pamme Taylor, WellCare’s vice president of advocacy and community-based programs, shares Wellcare’s strategy for meeting a broad spectrum of a member’s needs with community-based services and how these partnerships contribute to the engagement of duals in self-management of their care.
You will learn how Wellcare:
- Connects with primary care physicians and specialists to assess member needs;
- Uses PCPs and specialists to identify cultural and ethnic preferences to improve member engagement;
- Developed a referral tracking system embedded in the electronic health record for case managers to link members to available services;
- Expanded the referral tracking system data inputs to create a truly population health-focused platform; and
- Is working with community-based programs with constrained budgets to sustain needed services for their members.
Taylor also shares the impact of these initiatives on emergency room utilization, quality scores and gaps in care.
