PHILADELPHIA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Turn-Key
Health
, the market leader in end-of-life population health
management, is partnering with the National
Hospice and Palliative Care Organization
(NHPCO)
and Enclara
Pharmacia
to host the Executive
Business Summit “Positioning for the Future
,” Wednesday, April 20,

Co-sponsorship of the event further elevates Turn-Key Health to create a
network model that aligns community-based palliative care providers and
payers, with patients. This model uses technology and process to solve
the problem of poor quality, low satisfaction, and extreme high cost
during the last 18 months of life.

Greer Myers, president of Turn-Key Health and chief development officer
of Enclara Pharmacia, says, “The strength of our model lies in the
partnerships and collaborative spirit that we have engendered with
hospice and palliative care providers to deliver advanced illness
management to payers and health systems. Nationwide, these organizations
rely upon our proprietary predictive analytic solutions to identify
patients who are likely to receive futile care during the end-of-of-life
and informs how these patients should be cared for using scientifically
validated interventions. The result is improved quality of life, higher
member satisfaction, and decreased expense for the member and payer.”

Turn-Key Health is grounded in clinical and financial models that
demonstrate that four percent of Medicare patients will experience
greater than $24,000 in avoidable excess care every year. This $20
billion price tag on suboptimal care presents a significant opportunity
to increase patient and caregiver satisfaction, improve quality of care
and decrease healthcare expenses. Multiple controlled studies indicate
that this approach will decrease hospitalizations by as much as 43
percent, total spending by 33 percent and 30-day re-admissions by 31
percent.

“Our proven solutions access payer claims data and use predictive
analytics to identify those patients who are likely to die within 18
months,” explains Myers. “We then utilize this data to populate our
mobile palliative care, acute illness management platform. Our partners
get real-time dashboard views that can guide their patient assessments
and interventions, enabling the highest quality care while avoiding an
‘over-medicalized’ end-of-life experience that so many people want to
avoid.”
