Accountable Care Organizations (ACO)
Analysis and stratification of a patient population often identifies numerous high-risk groups that can drain all potential financial gains of a risk-share endeavor. While automated reminders and targeted electronic messages are a low cost method to reach these patients, real impact requires a combination of human-to-human interaction with a strategic, and consistent, communication strategy. NexusConnexions empowers ACOs to orchestrate these initiatives with a significant ROI though:
- Customizable communication plan templates that provide care coordinators with tactical communication actions and due dates, like reminder calls with clinical teach back, specific to each patient.
- Automated assignment, or stratification, of communication plan templates based on patient’s clinical condition(s) and other factors.
- Communication activity coaching for care coordinators with suggested scripts that change based on patient response and empower non-clinical staff to effectively influence patient behavior.
- Customizable reporting and dashboards of care coordinator and patient performance that provide key operational insights to care coordinators and management teams.
