PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Turn-Key Health, a population health management (PHM) company serving payers and their members with advanced illnesses, announces Terri Maxwell, Ph.D., APRN, chief clinical officer, Turn-Key Health, will participate in a panel discussion, “Innovations in Models of Care and Care Transitions,” 4:30 p.m., Tuesday, March 14, 2017 at Strategic Solutions Network (SSN) Best Practices for High Risk Populations, Care Transitions & Palliative Innovations, March 14-15, 2017, Omni Orlando Resort, Championsgate, Orlando, Florida. Panelists will focus on alternative care models for improving the care and quality of life for patients with advanced illness.
“This panel explores opportunities to better address the needs of high-risk, high-utilizers of healthcare, the costliest population cohort that is usually battling multiple chronic illnesses,” says Dr. Maxwell. “Our Palliative Illness Management™ -- PIM™ model focuses on the importance of predictive analytics within PHM programs to identify these patients early on in the disease trajectory. It then extends the value of PHM by introducing community-based palliative care teams to engage these members and caregivers in informed decision-making that avoids non-beneficial treatment."
She points to PIM™ as an innovative approach that taps the expertise and experience of specially trained nurses, social workers and clinicians. They provide symptom management, medication reconciliation and a layer of support that has traditionally been missing in care delivery for this fragile population subset. Additional psychosocial services and advanced care planning encourage people to consider, discuss and document their future wishes for care.
SSN focuses on issues related to meeting Triple Aim initiatives through coordination, integration and partnerships. Moderated by Jatin Dave, chief medical officer, New England Quality Care Alliance, the upcoming panel also includes:
- Parag Bharadwaj, M.D., FAAHPM, chief, Palliative Care Medicine, Sentara Healthcare
- John E. Burich, vice president, Strategy and Growth, Passport Health Plan
- Matthew Harker, associate director, Health Policy Hub, Duke Clinical Research Institute.
