The ROI of Care Management Solutions

In today’s ever-evolving healthcare landscape, payers are constantly searching for the right balance of providing exceptional care while keeping costs in check. Care management platforms have emerged as a solution to address both sides of this equation. However, measuring the return on investment (ROI) associated with care management solutions is not easy, given the complexity of healthcare operations and the multifaceted nature of care management.

Care management teams are given a tall order: Provide the highest-risk members with the most complete, whole-person care plans possible, all with the expectation that these members will adhere to their care plan and experience better health outcomes at a lower cost of care. Care managers are feeling pressure from every angle, struggling to balance the expectations of all stakeholders, including providers and care team staff, member families, government entities, and the health plan that employs them.

The reality is that care management is hard work. Care managers often work with the most complex and challenging members who are often hard to reach. These populations are multidimensional, meaning psycho-social factors and social determinants of health are almost always in play. In order to deliver whole-person care successfully, they have to build trusting relationships with these members, which is easier to do with access to the right data or the right technology solutions that can bridge communication gaps.

From an operational perspective, coordinating care across multiple, siloed care settings and community services is also difficult since most systems don’t talk to each other, and care managers have to log into multiple disparate systems to find the information they need. These outdated care management solutions hinder care manager productivity and efficiencies as caseloads continue to rise.
