Transformation Services

Patient Centered Primary Care Home (Medical Home) Development

CareSync Readiness Assessment® tools measure primary care and behavioral health providers’ cultural, technical, and clinical capacity to embrace patient-centered primary care home practice. Using these tools, we help design a transformation process that is customized to the client. We advocate the use of pilot teams and rapid change cycle testing. We incorporate formal tracking and analysis of quality improvements and costs. We help clients coordinate and integrate information technology across care settings. We suggest ways to improve outcomes through collaborative teams, including an approach to team care that maximizes the use of team members with a variety of skills and levels of training. This approach minimizes costs and disruption to provider operations, avoids costly changes to IT systems and provides the personnel and technology infrastructure needed for sustained improvement.

Strategic Planning, Business Planning & Operational Assessment

Legislative changes and economic pressures are forcing healthcare organizations to rethink their business strategy. Many are considering joint ventures, mergers, or buyouts. Strategic and business planning are core strengths of CareSync. We help organizations re-evaluate their mission, vision, and future goals. For joint ventures or mergers, we help determine capital requirements, recommend governance and organizational structures, propose equitable distribution formulas, and design integrated data management plans. Our business and organizational analysis and proposed solutions can significantly shorten the negotiation and agreement process. During the planning stage, we perform operational assessments of current business practices, clinical workflows, and work processes. These operational assessments identify opportunities for improved performance, efficiency, and productivity. We produce an actionable roadmap for these changes and assist with implementation.

Integration into Systems of Care/ACO Development

Primary care providers are implementing medical home concepts within their own practices. Equally important is care coordination across the health care system – with specialists, hospitals, and other care settings. We work with providers throughout the healthcare system to propose and test care coordination initiatives that will build trust across care teams, deliver quality improvements, and produce immediate cost savings. We help setup pilot projects focused on achieving quick results. During these pilots, we help build processes and infrastructure to support long-term change through continual process improvement and cost reduction.

Tools and Expertise to Accelerate Transformation

CareSync can assist organizations to accelerate transformation in several ways. We help develop effective provider incentives to implement and sustain behavior change. We have been successful writing grants and obtaining funding to support transformation projects. We have in-depth knowledge and experience working with rural providers. Our approach accommodates their needs during transformation and clinical integration. We have a unique on-line training system that significantly accelerates the implementation of changes needed for medical home and care integration. We have Lean Process on-line training modules with specific examples from healthcare providers and facilities. These on-line training resources not only speed transformation, but reduce implementation costs.
