Connect Care Plus: For Faster Implementation and Lower Start-up Costs
The greatest barriers to ACO success are start-up costs and staff positions to perform Chronic Care Management (ccp). ACOs face increased initial costs in healthcare IT and staffing.(6) As such, many ACOs are looking outside of their organizations to contract with third parties, such as Connect Care Plus. With healthcare IT and trained care coordinators already in place, Connect Care Plus offers a faster path to implementation.
Second, although ACOs have accomplished much in traditional healthcare services, they are still inadequate as key support service providers. Frequently, social
components prevent treatment plans from being effective. For instance, issues with food and housing insecurity and lack of transportation are social barriers to healthcare that Medicare patients face.(7) Connect Care Plus facilitates the connections these patients need to local and federal resources that ameliorate obstacles to good health outcomes.
