Health disparities exposed by the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S. have everyone talking about the need—and the opportunity—to build a better healthcare delivery system for patients of all races, ethnic backgrounds and socio-economic strata. However, not everyone agrees how or even where to start that process.
Successful care management programs can help improve the health of the communities your organization serves and safeguard your organization’s fiscal health.
A great place to start is with more effective care management – managing a patient’s health care to enable them to achieve their best health possible. The challenges to effective care management are plentiful. A recent proposal from the National Quality Forum (NQF) dubbed “The Care We Need” highlights those challenges and offers a five-part plan to overcome them in order to create a better healthcare delivery system for all patients.
