Lori Tishler, MD, CCA’s Vice President of Medical Affairs, was a panelist at the 14th Annual World Health Care Congress, held April 30-May 3, 2017, in Washington, DC. She and the other panelists, national healthcare executives and stakeholders, discussed ways to improve care for the population of patients who are dually eligible for both Medicaid and Medicare benefits. Reporting on the Congress, The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) notes Dr. Tishler’s comment that “coordination disconnects persist beyond just Medicaid and Medicare for this population.” The AJMC also reports that CCA’s program “uses a high-touch approach that looks at each member’s whole needs, including social determinants of health, and forms partnerships with community-based programs that can help the Alliance’s community health workers fit healthcare into the lives of the patients.” On the subject of telemedicine, Dr. Tishler was quoted as saying that “technologies shouldn’t drive the process, but processes should support technology.”
