Health Homes have been implemented in at least 22 states under the federal Medicaid Health Home state plan option, and initial results illustrate the potential for meaningful improvements in the quality and cost of care associated with serving individuals with chronic physical, mental, or behavioral conditions.
During this webinar, HMA experts discuss some of the key lessons learned in these early Health Home initiatives, with a special emphasis on the experience in New York and the District of Columbia. The webinar also provides practical solutions for the successful development, implementation, and refinement of Health Home care models.
- Understand the key components of a successful Health Home, including the monitoring of care transitions, early patient engagement, and integration of physical and behavioral health care.
- Learn how to work effectively with external stakeholders such as managed care plans, hospitals, community agencies, and other partners.
- Find out why the lessons learned from Health Homes programs are germane to any effort to improve the care of high-acuity patients.
- Obtain lessons learned from existing Health Home efforts in New York and the District of Columbia, including the potential for improvements in utilization, cost, and quality.
- Understand why Health Homes are an effective way to address behavioral health needs, substance abuse disorders, and social determinants of health.
