RISK ASSESSMENT TOOL
• The clinical team provides integrated health care management with a
strong primary and preventive care focus to treat acute and chronic
conditions.
– All I-SNP members receive a comprehensive history and physical
exam and care plan within 30 days of enrollment and
comprehensive visits at least once a month, thereafter. Care
coordination and care transitions support is provided to all
members, as needed.
• Nurse Practitioners (NPs) utilize a risk assessment tool that rates
each member’s medical condition on a scale of 1-5: Level 1-HOT,
Level 2 and 3- WARM, Level 4 and 5-COLD
– Risk score dictates the NP’s visit schedule
– Average NP visits per day – 8
– Risk score framework used at each visit and tracked over time via
encounter data

CARE TRANSITIONS PROCESS
• The Cigna-HealthSpring NP, PCP and the member’s caregiver are to be
notified of every acute care transition. Prior to the member’s transition, the
SNF completes a checklist/packet that includes: the member’s
comprehensive history and physical notes, the most recent comprehensive
or episodic note, consult notes, the medication list, and advanced directives.
• Upon return to the SNF, the NP must see the member within 1 business day.
A comprehensive visit is performed; discharge summary is reviewed and
signed; medication reconciliation is performed and a call is placed to the
caregiver and PCP. If the NP is unable to reach the caregiver, a postcard
note is sent to the caregiver with the NP’s contact information.
• During the weekly plan-level Interdisciplinary Care Team (ICT) call, the
dedicated NP assigned to the hospitalized member updates the ICT on the
member’s status and transition plan.
