Comprehensive Health Assessments
Impacting Member Health (Part 1 of 6)
Health-related New Year resolutions frequently top everyone’s lists! It’s never too early to start thinking about meeting your quality goals for 2019 and engaging members at a time when their health is top of mind. Remember that you can have a direct impact on your members current and future health. Matrix Medical Network (Matrix) is ready to deliver Comprehensive Health Assessments (CHA) in-home or on one of our mobile health clinics to help drive your objectives. Leading Medicare Advantage, Managed Medicaid, Exchange and Commercial Health Plans trust the expertise and readiness of Matrix.
The Matrix CHA qualifies as an annual wellness visit and is a focus for HEDIS and STARs gap closures, addressing or impacting up to sixteen quality measures, but insight gathered is more detailed than a traditional provider setting.
Live the Story
As shared by a Matrix Nurse Practitioner:
During nurse practitioner Laura’s visit, the member said that she was becoming concerned about shortness of breath, even when she was on her oxygen. She said it was something she was going to mention at a future doctor’s appointment.
In providing a very thorough exam, Laura discovered the woman had a heart murmur, blockage in her carotid artery and an abnormally fast heart rate.
Laura called the woman’s primary care physician who said that all of Laura’s findings were new symptoms. The doctor shared her gratitude for the phone call and promptly scheduled an appointment for the member.
Follow our posts this month as we walk through our approach with CHAs, ‘Live the Story’ and share some outcomes.
