Realizing the Potential of Post-Acute Care

Listen to Gary Jacobs, Executive Vice President of Strategic Relationships of CareCentrix, as he discusses the importance of realizing the potential of post-acute care partnerships. 

Post-acute care (PAC) can account for approximately 40% of a Medicare Advantage plan's cost for a 90-day episode of care. However, an integrated PAC solution has the potential to reduce total per episode costs by as much as 25%. Today, a number of systemic issues impede health plan efforts to reduce post-acute care costs, improve quality and simplify the administration of these services. But that is about to change with the introduction of new health plan and PAC partnership models built on value-based payment approaches. 


  • About the challenges health plans face in managing PAC delivery and costs. 
  • The value-improvement opportunity presented by an integrated PAC partnership model. 
  • Details on the critical features of a health plan / PAC partnership solution. 

Reducing Readmissions and Costs through an Integrated Approach to Post-Acute Care

Successful transitions reduce readmissions by integrating services, including care management, the use of data analytics for patient stratification and site of care selection, high performing networks of post-acute care providers, transitions coaching, a single-point-of-contact care management team, and a technology platform that connects the patient and caregiver and providers to each other. In this way, the people, processes, and technology can work together to help patients heal in a supportive, cost-effective home-based setting. 


  • How to drive value by placing the home at the center of patient care.
  • How an integrated approach can close care gaps, improve patient outcomes, increase cost savings, and increase member satisfaction.
  • How to apply this approach to Commercial, Managed Medicaid, Medicare Advantage, Exchanges, Marketplace, and ACOs.
