Casenet®, LLC, a leading provider of extensible care management solutions, today announced the release of TruCare® 6.0 which delivers advanced integrated care management capabilities for the holistic management of members’ medical, behavioral health and ancillary services. By providing a platform that enables effective care coordination between all disciplines and across the entire continuum of care, Casenet’s integrated care management solution enables care teams to completely address critical member needs cost effectively and efficiently resulting in better outcomes.
Traditional integrated care management solutions support both medical and behavioral health management needs. Casenet solutions go beyond traditional integrated care management capabilities and also include nonmedical services support. The seamless integration of nonmedical services with medical services enables care teams to create a comprehensive plan of care based on all of a member’s needs including attainable goals for that member. TruCare 6.0 includes advanced features like sophisticated problem libraries that allow care managers to select from both medical and nonmedical options when creating an integrated care plan. As a result, TruCare 6.0 delivers a more complete and better coordinated view of the member which when coupled with automated TruCare workflows, makes care teams more efficient and effective. The new platform will empower payers and their care teams to deliver person-centered support for long-term care, disability, chronic, and other high-risk, costly dual-eligible population initiatives resulting in healthier populations.
TruCare 6.0 similarly benefits commercial plans which are focused not only on managing medical conditions but also on meeting member-driven goals and influencing behavior and lifestyle changes. The new and advanced assessment capabilities in TruCare 6.0 automatically drive care plan, task and appropriate service request creation to ensure organizational and evidence-based guidelines are being followed in the plan of care. The generation of care plan recommendations directly from an assessment eliminates the work of having to go back to review assessment responses to identify problems, member preferences, barriers and recommended interventions. This reduces mistakes and omissions while driving better outcomes and efficiencies through the use of evidence-based guidelines and automated workflows.
“Regardless of the care management program, each authorized care team member now has easy access to the relevant information for that member regardless of whether the information is medical, behavioral health, lifestyle changes or long-term services related. You won’t find this capability in any other care management system in the market. TruCare 6.0 empowers your care managers to meet all needs of the member the first time, ensuring better care quality and improved outcomes,” said Dr. Robert LoNigro, chief medical officer, Casenet.
Other high-level benefits of TruCare 6.0 include:
“Truly integrated care management ensures all disciplines are working together to provide holistic care coordination regardless of where a member is along the care continuum,” stated Peter Masanotti, chief executive officer, Casenet. “TruCare 6.0 enables effective care team coordination and delivers unique workflow automation which improves care team efficiency, increases effectiveness and reduces cost.”
