I had an opportunity to work with a system that has been proven throughout the industry in managed healthcare.
Pros: Work from home with some travel.
Cons: Numerous spreadsheets and changes throughout the program
My typical work day may begin at 4 a.m. - early riser. As a Care Manager, I reviewed all pertinent patient information as retrieved and entered into the Care Management Program. Constant communication with my team of nurses, social worker, physicians, ACO Executive Director, and ACO Medical Director allowed us to manage those patients at highest risk. Quality data retrieval illuminated the needed quality improvements for continued care. I enjoyed this new endeavor. I regret that as a management team, we did not have enough time to prove that this ACO management program would absolutely improve quality care and improve utilization.
