The Promise of Care Coordination
While MCN is a powerful communication system, its main benefit, however, for health plans and employers stems from reducing spiraling health costs, such as unnecessary emergency room visits, unnecessary or repetitive diagnostic tests, and medication errors, to name a few.
Here are two examples for a dramatic reduction in health costs using care coordination:
1. Failure of coordinating care costs a fortune
Defined as the waste that comes when patients fall through the slats in fragmented care. The results are complications, hospital readmissions, declines in functional status and increased dependency, especially for the chronically ill, ( 75% of U.S. health care dollars goes to treatment of chronic diseases ) for whom care coordination is essential for health and function. Lack of care coordination represented between $25 billion and $45 billion wasteful spending.
2. Avoiding unnecessary visits to ER
Patients unable to get hold of a provider admit themselves to costly emergency rooms. MCN reduces unnecessary visits to emergency rooms by enabling easy access to providers. A typical visit to ER for treating headache can be as high as $17,390, while visiting a provider is a fraction of that. In a research brief issued in 2010, the New England Healthcare Institute reported that overuse of emergency rooms “is responsible for up to $38 billion in wasteful spending in the United States every year.” The institute estimated that avoidable visits to emergency rooms “range as high as 56 percent of all visits.”
