New clinical approaches for high-need, high-cost individuals

November 24, 2015 § Leave a comment

Are today’s clinicians prepared to deal with the complicated non-medical issues facing high-cost, high-need patients? The Center for Health Care Strategies put this question to a number of clinicians and health experts, including Commonwealth Care Alliance’s Chief of Medicine Toyin Ajayi, MD, and John Loughnane, MD, Senior Vice President for Medical Services.

In a video, Ajayi and Loughnane explain how Commonwealth Care Alliance has managed to improve health outcomes and reduce hospital visits through partnerships with social service agencies and risk-adjusted capitated contracts with MassHealth and Medicare. They also describe how many innovative approaches to care are not usually taught in medical school, but are developed through hands-on experience with patients.
