Actionable Intelligence. Decision Support. Only From Remedy
Remedy Partners CEO Carolyn Magill was a featured speaker at the Health 2.0 conference in Santa Clara, California on September 26, 2016. More than 2,000 digital health decision makers attended to hear about the latest trends shaping the healthcare industry.
In its 2014 report, Dying in America, the Institute of Medicine identified several areas for improvement in the care of those with life-limiting illness, including inadequate advance care planning and a lack of payment systems supporting high quality end of life care. Since then, we can point to two notable achievements in support the IOM report’s call for improvement: the proliferation of bundled payment programs and two E&M codes for advance care planning. I believe these developments will make it possible for more patients with serious illness to receive palliative care, as for the first time incentives are aligned between patients’ desires and how care is paid for.

Selecting the optimal next site of care (NSOC) after hospital discharge has emerged as a core skill for physicians in the era of value-based healthcare. The challenge is that few of us have received formal training in post acute care site selection. When I meet with physicians and discuss NSOC selection, they express a clear desire for guidance on discharge planning as they work with patients, caregivers and the healthcare team. Here is a framework to assist physicians in post acute care selection within the BPCI program.
The Perfect is the Enemy of the Good
Before I started working for Remedy Partners as a Transitional Care Specialist assisting a Model 2 Acute Care Hospital Episode Initiator (EI) in identifying, engaging, and tracking BPCI patients during their episodes of care, one of the nurses preparing me for the job told me that “if you accomplish nothing else… get them to pick up the phone.” Her point was that if we are not able to speak to our patients after discharge then it will be difficult, if not impossible, to influence the outcome of that patient’s recovery. This was some of the best advice that I received but it assumed that we had already identified the patient as a BPCI patient.
Home health care has become an increasingly viable option for individuals seeking post acute care in their own homes, and the selection of home care as the next site of care when appropriate can contribute to success in a bundled payment program. Because there are nuances to the use of home health services in a bundled payment program, Remedy Partners convened two events to address the intersection of the BPCI program and home health services in Florida: the first-ever Home Health Town Hall and a BPCI & HH Symposium.
Darien, CT, May 25, 2016 — Remedy Partners announced today the appointment of Carolyn Magill to the position of Chief Executive Officer. Carolyn assumes the leadership of Remedy at a time of dramatic growth, as the Company expands its software and services to manage bundled payment programs.
