A network of support to benefit your employees
Colorado Health Neighborhoods (CHN) approaches health care differently, with health in mind. Network providers concentrate on quality instead of quantity. It’s a thoughtful approach, providing value to your employees and their dependents.
As part of Centura Health, the region’s leading health care network, CHN offers the most choice in providers, and access to the experts, specialists, facilities and technology to help your employees become engaged in and navigate their health care journey.
Proactive, Personalized Care
Patients with chronic conditions benefit from CHN’s care coordination program. The care coordinator partners with the patient’s primary care provider (PCP) in creating individualized care plans to manage the patient’s complex health needs.
Care coordinators check in with patients each Friday to see how they are feeling, if they have medication for the weekend, and if they need to be seen. When their PCP isn’t available, high-risk patients are encouraged to first call their care coordinator before heading to an ER.
The proactive, personalized approach works. CHN has reduced admissions and ER visits in several patient populations.
- Asthma: 26% reduction in admissions
- Congestive Heart Failure: 71% reduction in admissions
- COPD: 52% reduction in admissions
- Coronary Artery Disease: 88% reduction in admissions
- High ER-utilizers: 71% reduction in visits
Advancing Quality Care
CHN knows reducing cost is as important as optimizing health. Through several initiatives to support population health and high-risk patients, CHN has been able to demonstrate positive results.
The integration of health care teams supporting quality programs has resulted in a reduction for total cost of care. This is based on risk stratification to better analyze gaps and improve care through data analytics, evidence-based guidelines for disease management programs, and enhanced clinical pathways (care plans) to include care coordination.
