    4. Atrius Health Core Competencies

    5. Why Participate in Pioneer ACO? “Reason for Action”

    6. Key Features of Pioneer & Performance Measures

    7. Quality Measures: Key Features

    8. Atrius Approach to Pioneer Secondary Drivers Primary Drivers Tight coordination of 5% highest risk patients Outcome Integration of home-based care and community supports Stratified, population-based, geriatric model of care Longitudinal management of chronic conditions Population-based outreach and preventative care High Value Care for Medicare Patients Discharge process that includes standard Atrius Health elements Aligned hospital relationships Bi-directional access to medical records Concurrent reporting of admissions, discharges, ER visits Collaborative care improvement and performance incentives Effective network of facilities and providers Coordination of post-acute care and care transitions Consistent and appropriate documentation and information exchange Shared SNF coverage with other Boston Pioneers

    9. Addressing the Gaps in Home-Based Care Accountable for managing care, cost and quality of Medicare services in the home setting. • Costs are substantial across dozens of post-acute providers. • Patients have choice and are geographically distributed. • Poor transitions result in unnecessary readmissions and other wasteful costs, harm, and errors. • No standard model of home-based care across Atrius Health, no standard measurement ASAPs, while not currently Medicare providers, can be an important resource in closing these gaps.

    10. ASAP Strategy: Link Primary Care to Community Home Care Services Achieve triple aim objectives by linking primary care practices to community resources • Reduce costs through prevention and/or reduction of unnecessary utilization of health care services • Improve health outcomes through better care coordination and patient education • Improve patient experience and satisfaction by aligning with goal of remaining functionally active at home Community CareLinkagesSMA Division of Mass Home Care

    11. Community CareLinkagesSMMass Home Care Community Care Linkages is a strategic initiative that effectively integrate services of the Massachusetts Aging Services Access Points (ASAPs) with the evolving healthcare delivery system. ASAPs (AAAs) are a valued partner in moving health reform efforts forward: • CCTP/Section 3026 (care transitions) • Self Management Supports/CDSMP – Healthy Living Center of Excellence, • The Community Living Program - Partnering with SCOs, ACOs, PCMHs and Integrated Care Organizations (ICOs) to serve dual eligibles

    12. Atrius Health – ASAP Collaboration • Expansion of the “Care Team” to include the patient’s home and community-based networks • Requires: effective communication for timely and efficient referrals, hand offs, and “closing the loop” • Results in: patient centered care plans with realistic goals and resources for implementation • Collaboration through: • Practice-based Pilots • Population-based Interventions Community CareLinkagesSMA Division of Mass Home Care

    13. Atrius Health/ASAPs Practice-Based Pilots • HVMA Chelmsford & Elder Services of Merrimack Valley • Southboro & BayPath • HVMA West Roxbury & Ethos • HVMA Wellesley/Watertown & Springwell Currently expanding to new sites Community CareLinkagesSMMass Home Care

    14. OUR PARTNERSHIPS • Practice-based pilots and population-based interventions of varied intensity • Creation of patient centered care plans with resources for implementation • Development of standard work processes for optimal care coordination Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates- Wellesley and Watertown with Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates- Chelmsford with Southboro Medical Group with Enhanced care coordination to “close the loop” on services provided On-site ASAP Social Worker integrated into the practices Direct communication between practices and ASAPs with secure e-mail PROGRESSION OF SERVICE DELIVERY Community CareLinkagesSMMass Home Care

    15. Atrius Health and ASAPs: Progression of Integration

    16. A New ParadigmThe Patient-Centered Medical Home • Southboro & Framingham Pilot • Goals: • Reduce hospital and ED utilization • Improve quality scores above rest of department • Bring in new patients • Compare performance of both practices with ASAP Social Worker as “authentic member of care team” • Methods: • 5 hours/week/FTE of Physician management time (Southboroonly) • Care manager for ACO/TMP patients; monthly physician meetings • Team-based Diabetic and High Risk Roster reviews • Monthly all-staff meeting and patient discussions • Use of NPs in a collaborative care model (Southboro only) • Financial incentives for exceptional performance

    17. Results of Pilot • Hospitalizations and ED use were significantly reduced in 2012 for all of adult medicine. • In terms of utilization, the Framingham pilot performed better than non-PCMH physicians, and Southboro performed better than Framingham. • When the physicians were asked for the single aspect of the program that made a difference they stated the Care Management team. • Spread model pending the full analysis (including patient experience, quality scores, provider satisfaction, net financial impact, etc.).

    18. Value Proposition for MD PracticeASAP as Authentic Member of Care Team • Quicker and "more economically feasible" to buy • Better access to ASAP services through embedded staff in practice (vs. standard I&R) • Improved care management that reduced duplication of handoffs • More patients access ASAP network services through relationship • Opportunity to focus on prevention, develop innovative model for best practice • Align with ACO measures • Reduces burden on MD practices “wish she was here 5 days per week” “Our staff can focus more on care management and less on the details or making arrangements” Community CareLinkagesSMMass Home Care

    19. Opportunities • Build sustainable relationships beyond individuals • Continuous learning together = innovation • Demonstrate Value = Clinical and Financial Commitment • Introduce new services and technologies Challenges • Not fast enough • Pilot to Scale • Too many changes • Data timing • Utilization & Costs • Quality measures • Integration into primary careprotocols • Work flow changes • Education

    20. Lessons Learned ASAP Collaboration • Build relationship with one point of contact and spread • Allow time for MD practice staff to “experience” value of ASAP, one patient at a time • Participation in case “roster” review is powerful External/CMS • More unknowns than expected, more risk • Pioneer is more than Medicare - federal agencies have a stake • Potential conflicts AND/OR opportunities with other initiatives • CCTP, MSSP ACOs, Bundled Payment Pilot Internal Atrius Health • MD engagement drives change • Care Managers are key to everything • Atrius Health level contract creates a burning platform
