Does Consolidation Impact the Triple Aim? UW Medicine and VMC: • Access to commercial ACO contracts • Access to clinical expertise • Access to research opportunities • Sharing of best practices within the system • Sharing of best practices with community providers
Are delivery systems changing? ----The VMC Experience • Changed RN Focus to Care Management (2013) • RN Care Manager Training (AAACN) • Evolved Disease Management to High Risk Holistic Care Management (2014) • Re-Aligned Quality Metrics • Re-Aligned Team Metrics • Focused on Patient Experience (2013) • Created RN Panels (2014) • Medical Home Recognition (2015) • Risk Scoring Imbedded in EMR • Healthy Planet/Registry Development • Shadowing/Teaming with IP Care Mgt
Challenges…. Open Medical Staff (ex. 60 -65% of patients seen in urgent care and specialty care have PCP out of network) Alignment of leadership Changing demographics: South King County increasing obesity, low income, low literacy, more diversity Provider burn out (ex. too many clicks) Complicated and overly prescriptive care management contract specifications Conflicting ACO contract(s) objectives RN Care Manager panel growth and management (65 -200 patients/RN) And more………. .
Challenges…. • Fee For Service/Volume/Visit orientation in Shared Savings arrangements • Reliance on downstream revenue • How to fund population management infrastructure • Pot at the end of the rainbow? • Volume based Chronic Care Management? • Capitation?
Challenges… Is it getting better? You tell me.
