DE0711: Diabetes Online CDE: Case Management: Practicing Population Health to Engage Patients as Partners in Care [Live & Recorded]
Primary care case management includes activities that integrate additional support to help patients achieve goals within primary care and/or coordinate care needs that are dependent upon services beyond those offered in primary care [e.g.; specialty care, community services]. Health coaching is a model of chronic disease health education that can be readily integrated into team-based primary care. Health coaching occurs in a coach-patient relationship, providing tailored, culturally appropriate education and self-management support. In this presentation we present two Chinle IHS programs which health coaches utilize case management to extend their help of patients. For the past 11 years, we provided diabetes education in primary care clinics using bilingual, bicultural health coaches. The coaches target higher risk patients, including individuals with new onset diabetes, poor glycemic control, or insulin use. The health coaches connect patients to other clinical services [e.g.; Medical Nutritional Therapy, Native Medicine]. For a selected group of patients, the health coaches provide additional case management services to help patients maintain continuity. With the support of the Diabetes Program, a second program of case management with health coaching was developed, focusing on patients with complex care needs.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Define case management and health coaching, and examine how case management programs may improve patient-centered clinical services, primary care infrastructure and population health.
2. Describe how team members can be mentored to develop case management skills.
3. Identify high risk patients in a population, including those with a diagnosis of diabetes, utilizing tools such as RPMS, ICare, and Audit analytics.
