Onsite Clinical Support
The Care COORDINATE solution provides onsite clinical support to operationalize our programs in collaboration with the provider’s existing teams. Care Navigation Services has designed proprietary, proven models that optimize case management, social work and care transition teams across the continuum.
Registered Nurse (RN) Transitional Advocate
Care Navigation Services staffs acute and post-acute facilities with an RN Transitional Advocate to improve overall patient experience. The RN Transitional Advocate facilitates a personalized and seamless transition to the next level of care.
Our acute model aims to enhance case management efficiency by providing a resource to manage hard-to-place patients transitioning to skilled nursing. This timely post-acute referral placement positively impacts avoidable inpatient days. In the post-acute setting, the RN Transitional Advocate is focused on engaging patients in their own self-care by providing disease-specific education, personalized clinical-quality coaching and post-discharge coordination.
The RN Transitional Advocate program guarantees patients have access to necessary resources and tools, empowering them to take a more active role in their recovery process and ongoing disease management.
On-site one-on-one time between Transitional Advocate and patient enhances overall quality of care and patient satisfaction, while reducing unnecessary returns to an acute care hospital.
Address value-based goals and elevate overall quality of care
Care Navigation Services staffs RN Navigators to facilitate patient education and care coordination for alternative payment programs including Bundle Payment for Care Improvement – Advanced (BPCI-A), Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) and other value-based initiatives. In collaboration with providers, the Nurse Navigator proactively engages the patient to support the entire risk period (30-90 days) with strategies such as clinical coaching and “teach-back” methods, patient-specific education, and follow-up phones calls at home.
The Care Navigation team can help manage preferred provider networks within the program to promote a value-based culture throughout the network. We’ve found that well-engaged clinical teams is a key component for long-term clinical-quality and financial success of alternative payment models.
Program outcomes demonstrate overall reduced average length of stay, unnecessary healthcare utilization, and hospital readmissions, ultimately reducing cost of patient care and generating savings for our clients.
