BHM Spotlight on Medical Homes Featured in Case in Point
BHM Healthcare Solutions is breaking news again, this time in relation to Medical Homes in Dorland Health's publication, Case in Point, publishing the article titled "Integrating Medical Homes and Hospitals to Reduce Avoidable Readmissions" in
St. Louis (I-Newswire) August 6, 2013 - Medical Homes have been making the news as one of the most popular and promising models of healthcare in the face of expansive healthcare reform, and on the eve of implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Benefits of the model include lowered costs, improved quality of care, and healthcare integration between physician and mental illnesses. This is an important aspect of reform following the Mental Health Parity Act which strives to provide equal coverage for behavioral health conditions. It is also an area that BHMs team is familiar with due to their roles as Healthcare Management Consultants. Medical Homes are undergoing a substantial amount of change and development right now, from implementation to URAC Medical Home Accreditation, to analysis and operational improvement. By understanding the admissions problem, and putting safeties in place early in the transition process, Medical Homes can see a healthy improvement in their bottom lines.
Though enormous strides are being made within the Medical Home Model, these organizations still struggle to reduce avoidable readmissions. These readmissions are costly to both patients and providers. This is the topic of the article that BHM experts tackle in the July edition of Case in Point. Readers of the publication will find out why readmissions are a problem - from cost to impact on care quality- and what can be done to achieve reduction in these cases. Recommendations are based on the expertise of BHMs healthcare financial consultants, and are based on actual strategy application. Well versed in Medical Home implementation and transformation, BHM associates utilize their in depth insight coupled with strategies for success that have been implemented for clients to present solutions which are viable, sustainable, and can help Medical Homes improve their financial stability while maintaining a high level of care for consumers.
"We are always excited to share tips on healthcare organization improvement based on positive results our firm has achieved for similar organizations" stated Linda Ringquist, Associate Consultant at BHM Healthcare Solutions.
In fact, BHM has been expanding its outreach efforts, providing valuable guidance to organizations through a number of recent publications. BHM's experts have shared their insight in a number of recent publications both in print and online. These publications have included: M2 Inspired, Medical Home News, Dorland Health's Case in Point, Advance Magazine, MHA Programs, NAMCPs Journal of Managed Care Medicine, Televox, Executive Insight, and Siemen's Healthworks Collective.
This supports BHMs mission of providing valuable insight to healthcare organizations, and sharing knowledge to increase quality of care and decrease cost of care. BHM is appreciative of the relationship formed with Dorland Health and wishes them continued success with their publications.
