COMMUNITY CARE MANAGEMENT
Project Title: Enhancing Patients’ Lives through Community Care Management
Piedmont/Kaiser collaboration provided health care and community resource linkages to low-income, non-Medicare Charity
Care-eligible patients with complex, chronic diseases at or below 200% of the Federal Poverty Level to reduce avoidable
hospital readmissions and emergency room visits by 20%.
Impact and Lessons Learned
17

The project served 352 patients and 324 caregivers (proposed 961 patients and 961 caregivers). Only 3% of program
participants were readmitted to the hospital within 60 days. The hospital’s average readmission rate is 11%.

Over 11,000 telephone support calls, 270 home visits, almost 1,000 contacts with physician offices and made
transportation arrangements, community resource linkages and provided pharmacy assistance.

Patients’ health was positively impacted as demonstrated by improved PHQ-9(Patient Health Questionnaire) and PAM
(Patient Activation Measure).

Clients needed help addressing their social barriers to accessing care.

Telephonic model didn’t work well, so Piedmont switched to a social medicine model of care, which focused on the
sociological factors that contribute to illness.

Patients are able to manage their own care when given the necessary tools.

Low-income patients are more quickly labeled “noncompliant”
ATLANTA SAFETY NET COLLABORATIVE
•
•
Kaiser Grant for Grady Walk-In Center and Patient Navigator Program
– New site on Grady campus for “walk-ins” (Considered FQHC management)
– Patient navigators located in the walk-in center, all 4 FQHCs and Grady primary
care
• 7 navigators
– Navigators provided patient education regarding PCMH and scheduled follow up
appointments to FQHCs or a Grady clinic
– Challenge in getting patients to leave Grady System
• History/culture
• Co-pays
Impact
– While program did not drive down ED volumes as anticipated, ambulatory
sensitive conditions decreased as a percent of total volume
– Program created a platform for further collaboration among safety net
ATLANTA SAFETY NET COLLABORATIVE
• United Way Community Health Worker Program
– Building on Navigator Program, the CHW program targets high-utilizers from the
emergency department
• 5 CHWs
• 2 year program
– CHW’s trained for home visits and ongoing support outside of clinical visits
– With underlying behavioral health conditions of high-utilizers, program was redirected to focus on patients with high-risk for re-admissions
– Continue to have the goal of referring patients without a medical home to the
FQHCs and Grady clinics
• Impact
– One year into the program, initial results indicate reduced re-admission rate for
patients assigned a CHW
– No determination of impact on patients adopting PCMH
MODEL FOR REPLICATION
New Program developed – Sams Care Program
Primary goal: To increase access to necessary care for uninsured community members in Piedmont’s
service communities, avoiding preventable emergency department re-encounters, building upon
successes and lessons learned through Piedmont/Kaiser collaboration
Primary activities:
•
Deploy EPIC into three charitable clinics – Fayette CARE Clinic (Fayetteville), Coweta Samaritan
Clinic (Newnan) and Hands of Hope (Stockbridge)
•
Provide for midlevel staffing to expand clinic capacity
•
Provide for licensed medical social worker to address socioeconomic issues
•
Create streamlined ED referral process
•
Measure and capture patient care outcomes, impact on hospital, impact on community
•
Establish sustainable funding for program
•
Deploy “phase two” components – disease management, further ED integration
