Allina Health improved the quality of the lives of its patients with complex medical conditions, while saving its community $11.2M annually through innovative care management in a value-based environment. A challenging task for any population but especially notable when accomplished in support of a high-risk, high-cost population.
With approximately 15 percent of United States’ citizens affected by disability- Allina Health’s Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute (CKRI) was established to support patients with disabilities, injuries, and complex medical conditions in achieving the highest possible degree of health, functioning, and quality of life. CKRI leaders knew that in order to achieve these goals they needed to create a multidisciplinary, collaborative care model that focused on the whole person—one that looked beyond the medical to address vocational, social, and emotional needs.
This two-hour session will cover CKRI’s journey in developing an innovative care management model that used analytics to improve and measure patient and financial outcomes in a value-based, at-risk environment.
