Models for Helping High-Need, High-Cost Patients


Read the latest two profiles in our series examining care models for high-need, high-cost patients:

  • At the University of New Mexico, experts with Project ECHO—short for Extension for Community Health Outcomes—are using videoconferencing to train primary care teams in rural and underserved communities to treat beneficiaries dealing with substance use, mental illness, and physical health problems, often compounded by poverty and social isolation.
  • Since 1971, the Program of All-Inclusive Care for the Elderly (PACE) has helped thousands of frail elders “age in place” in the community; now a proposed federal rule would give program administrators greater flexibility in staffing while reducing their regulatory burdens. Learn how the PACE approach promotes independence, supports family caregivers, and reduces the need for costly acute care.
