How We Can Help
For anyone who has navigated our current health care system first-hand, you know that it can be a difficult process. At Brightpoint Health, we realize this is true even more so for individuals with complex chronic conditions. Our team of care management experts understands the challenges chronically ill persons are faced with, and we’re here to bridge the communication gap between patient, caregivers and health care providers. We have implemented our Health Home model in order to streamline the process and ensure superior services for our patients. Consequently, through better care coordination and service integration, we can improve the outcomes for the at-risk and underserved population while reducing their Medicaid expenditures.
What is Health Home?
Health Home is an innovation that grew out of the Affordable Care Act's provision and the New York State Medicaid Redesign Team, offering additional federal support to states to develop and implement a person-centered system of care that improves quality of care and patient outcomes while reducing Medicaid costs. This care management model ensures that all clinical decisions are guided by the patient's values, including his/her cultural traditions, personal preferences, family situation, social circumstances, and lifestyle. The model recognizes that significant social determinants can greatly reduce an individual's ability to engage in care, therefore, our staff are uniquely trained to address these barriers in conjunction with our patients' health needs.
