Showcases Opportunities to Improve Quality, Impact Cost
PHILADELPHIA – October 16, 2017 – Turn-Key Health (TKH), a population health management (PHM) company serving payers and their members with advanced illness, announces Ian Duncan, FSA, FIA, FCIA, FCA, MAAA, adjunct associate professor, Statistics & Applied Probability, University of California Santa Barbara, Matthew Harker, MBA, MPH, associate director, Health Policy Hub, Duke Clinical Research Institute, and Terri Maxwell, Ph.D., APRN, chief clinical officer, Turn-Key Health, will present “Understanding End-of-Life Issues for Actuaries” during the SOA Annual Meeting & Exhibit, Oct. 18, 2017, 8:30–9:45 a.m., Hynes Convention Center, Boston.
“Patients spending their last days away from loved ones are often connected to machines or undergoing therapies of low value that can be misaligned with patient/family preferences,” says Dr. Maxwell. “Predictive models now are capable of identifying persons appropriate for palliative care and new population health and payment models are emerging to allow for more widespread delivery of palliative care.”
Attendees will learn about new models that focus on individuals with advanced illness and offer a process-driven approach to population health management (PHM). Discussions will include the role of predictive analytics to proactively identify patients, the value of a uniform approach to delivering community-based palliative care, and new payment models to support these initiatives.
To help payers better understand end-of-life care challenges, Turn-Key Health has released the first installment of its three-part white paper, “Effectively Addressing the Impact of Advanced Illnesses.” Download part one, “Recalibrating Population Health Management to Include Community-Based Palliative Care.”
