People with complex health needs face challenges such as chronic conditions, behavioral health issues, trauma history, food insecurity, and homelessness. When high-need patients require medical services, they often encounter a health care system that is poorly coordinated, inefficient, and expensive. All too often, they experience poor outcomes due to avoidable emergency department visits and hospital stays that do not improve their health.
Meeting the needs of these patients is an economic necessity. Help your organization improve care and costs for high-need patients with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IH) Virtual Expedition, Redesigning Care for Patients with Complex Needs, beginning January 11, 2018.
What You'll Learn
At the end of this Virtual Expedition, each participant will be able to:
- Understand the specific needs of their target population
- Match effective interventions to meet needs of their target population
- Describe how to use the 5x Method to redesign their care model and grow their program to scale
- Identify their organization’s strategic considerations so that sustainability drives care redesign
This IHI Virtual Expedition is approved for a total of
continuing education credits for physicians, nurses and pharmacists.
