Acerca de


Poor prognoses, the loss of functional capabilities, and the need for advanced care planning are just some of the emotionally charged challenges of caring for individuals with advanced illness. This resource examines Aetna's Compassionate Care program, a case management approach for this population. The payor's initiative breaks down barriers commonly encountered in this highly sensitive stage of the health continuum while positively impacting both healthcare utilization and spend. In this 30-page resource, the senior medical director of Aetna Medicare shares the key features of the Compassionate Care Program at Aetna, along with the impact the program has had on healthcare utilization and quality outcomes. He also answers a range of questions on the initiative, including the role of palliative care, strategies for educating and engaging both providers and patients in care management for advanced illness, transitioning patients to this stage of care management, and the ideal traits of the Compassionate Care case manager. Additionally, a managing partner with Clarion LLC draws upon her 10 years of experience in care and case management of oncology patients to share the case manager's perspective. In a Q&A interview, she, not associated with the Compassionate Care program, describes some of the challenges of the field, including the shifting definition of care management and an emerging trend in oncology care management, care of the survivors. This resource provides details on the following: * How providing information, tools and resources contributes to higher quality of care for those with advanced illness; * Best practices and barriers that commonly arise during the care of advanced illness patients; * Patient identification and engagement techniques, including the use of motivational interviewing to improve communication and goal attainment; * How a member-centric system, which includes case management and other clinical assessments helps case managers address the holistic needs of the patients; and * Results from the program that illustrate the program's impact at the best intersection of quality and cost.
