‘Surrounding’ frail patients with care


Read how CareMore, a Southern California insurance plan, has cut costs and improved outcomes by providing direct care for its frailest elderly patients.

AJMC reports the plan has developed “an integrated patient care delivery system designed to surround patients with care. The system is based on extensivists, hospital-based physicians who also see patients for 1 or more follow-up outpatient visits; a cadre of nurse practitioners who manage specific chronic conditions by protocol; and a corps of nurse care managers who manage banks of remote home monitoring data and develop trusting relationships with patients.”
