Care N’ Care Health Plan Partners with Industry’s Leading Companies to Positively Impact Members’ Health and Well-Being

Innovative R.E.A.C.H. Program Provides Members with Chronic
Conditions the Additional Support and Resources They Need to Better
Manage Their Health

FORT WORTH, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”” target=”_blank”gt;#REACHlt;/agt;–Care N’ Care (HMO/PPO) Health Plan announced today the launch of a new
program designed to provide members with chronic conditions the
additional support they need to manage their health and maintain active
and fulfilling lives.

Under the new “Resources for Enhanced Access to Community Health”
program—or R.E.A.C.H.—Care N’ Care is assembling some of the nation’s
best-known and most widely respected healthcare companies to provide
value-added services and resources to Care N’ Care members. When fully
amassed, these industry leaders will provide everything from on-demand
medical care at home, behavioral health, and home healthcare to
radiology services, advanced illness decision support, palliative care
and much more.

“The creation of R.E.A.C.H. is part of our continued focus of looking
for new and better ways to positively impact a member’s health and
well-being and to remind members of the importance of consistent
self-care so they can live life to its fullest,” said Care N’ Care Chief
Medical Officer David J. Sand, M.D. “The clinical partners we are
assembling under this unique program all share our philosophy and
mission and, as trusted partners, greatly expand the scope of supportive
member services we are able to offer.”

Charter partners in R.E.A.C.H. include:

  • AdhereHealth – A leading healthcare technology company focused
    on medication adherence, AdhereHealth will help Care N’ Care members
    better manage their medications. Using data analytics, AdhereHealth
    will identify individuals who may not be taking their medications and
    work directly with members and their doctors to resolve adherence
    challenges. Assistance may take the form of regular medication reviews
    with licensed clinicians, synchronizing the delivery of multiple
    medications directly to members’ homes, coordinating transportation to
    the doctor or pharmacy, and addressing the high cost of medications
    and other barriers to care.
  • Medtronic Care Management Services – As part of one of
    the largest medical technology, services and solutions companies in
    the world, Medtronic Care Management Services will provide at-home
    daily health checks and clinical monitoring for members as Care N’
    Care’s Connected Health program. Remote patient monitoring can
    play a role in impacting the health of members with common chronic
    health conditions, including congestive heart failure, chronic
    obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, coronary artery disease and
    high blood pressure by delivering insights to help address patients’
    unmet needs at home and intervene before an acute event.
  • Turn-Key Health – Recognized nationwide for providing
    exceptional community-based palliative care solutions to health plans,
    provider organizations and their members, Turn-Key will support Care
    N’ Care members and their caregivers with its Palliative Illness
    Management® solution. This home-based program improves
    symptom management, establishes goals of care, promotes shared
    decision-making, and reduces unplanned and non-beneficial healthcare.
    Going beyond traditional care coordination to also address social
    determinants of health results in better patient-centered care plans.
  • Vital Decisions – The leading organization in advance care
    planning and alignment for members with serious illness, Vital
    Decisions will provide Care N’ Care members and their families
    personalized support with medical decision-making. The telehealth
    program Living Well™ is delivered over the phone or video session by
    specialists trained in healthcare decision-making and counseling. The
    program is offered over multiple sessions. The goal is to ensure that
    an individual dealing with a complex medical situation has a process
    for considering how their unique values and wishes are understood,
    communicated and ultimately reflected in their healthcare. Further, in
    the event of a medical emergency, others are equipped to make sure
    that care that is delivered is aligned with the member’s wishes.
    Advance care planning documents are also made available as part of
    this process.

“This new era of collaborative partnership is designed for those Care N’
Care members who need additional support confronting challenging
healthcare issues,” said Dr. Sand. “Our goal is to go beyond the
historical role that health plans have played and instead be much more
proactive in truly being the member’s healthcare partner in providing
resources, education and solutions when they need them most.”
