Key Dimensions of Dual Eligible Integrated Care Program Development

»Scope and flexibility of benefits - more than M&M fee-for-service

»Quality management and accountability - unified, broad, CQI

»Financing and payment - flexible, aligned incentives

- Integrating Information

Quality Methods and Measures

Primary Care / Chronic Care Management


Slide12 l.jpg

Quality/Consumer Focused Care Is the Key:

Look at quality from various perspectives (i.e., consumer, provider, payer)

Look at entire picture

Consider structure, process and outcomes


Slide13 l.jpg

Key Micro Strategy: Primary Care Teamwork

Focus on holistic approach encompassing health and welfare (e.g., psychosocial, economic, environmental, social supports)

Monitor ongoing health status for early detection of problems

Emphasize health education and prevention

Support chronic care self management

Increase opportunities for communication

Summary Thoughts for Discussion

Integrated Care Programs need to be expanded and replicated.

Special Needs Plan represent both opportunity and challenge to IC.

Continuous Quality Improvement Evaluation is necessary going forward.
