Magellan Healthcare, Magellan Health, Inc. (Nasdaq: MGLN) today announced a collaborative care management solution for health plans and providers that will enhance behavioral health care services provided in physical health care settings.
Developed with NeuroFlow, a key partner in Magellan’s digital transformation, this solution enables primary and specialty care providers to identify and manage low to moderate risk behavioral health conditions before they progress. Increase access to behavioral health care and exams.
Providers will be better supported by the Magellan clinical team, which will leverage Neuroflow’s cloud-based platform to deliver:
• Patient data integrated into existing provider electronic medical records and practice workflows
• Artificial intelligence that identifies members at risk, allows real-time feedback, and reports on results such as symptom reduction and remission.
• Integration with a member application that provides self-care activities and personalized clinical content feeds the results recorded by the patient to a registry for monitoring and risk stratification.
It addresses the growing challenge of limited access and availability for high-tech and high-tech solution providers. According to a report by the New American Economy, 60% of counties in the US have a shortage of psychiatrists, and by 2025, Americans will have an estimated shortage of 250,000 mental health professionals. Additionally, members with low to moderate risk behavioral health issues may experience undiagnosed/underdiagnosed conditions that go untreated.
The Collaborative Care Model
Collaborative care is an integrated approach to care that provides a referral system as well as a human health system as well as a team system for treating patients with behavioral health and health issues within the framework of primary care.
Collaborative Care Delivery Teams work with nursing technology assistants and psychiatrists to help primary care nurses integrate health care into their primary care setting. This is a closed-loop device and has been shown to promote quality depression management while helping to provide 6: 1 feedback markers.
Although many years of research support the effectiveness of social care, it comes at a high cost and in the long run. Magellan Solutions uses NeuroFlow technology to overcome these barriers, enabling efficient mobility and integration between departments in days to weeks.
How Magellan’s CoCM Solution Works
Patients complete a well-planned medical exam using a mobile device or tablet when they arrive at their provider’s office. Test results are reviewed and submitted to the dashboard integrated into the patient’s medical record. The provider can discuss the result with the patient during the visit and recommend social care for those at risk.
Magellan’s caregiver integrates the NeuroFlow cloud database to monitor his patients and prioritize those who need them. The caregiver acts as a link between the provider and the Magellan psychiatrist who recommends the best practice. The patient benefits from NeuroFlow-based clinical content during and after treatment to manage their condition through programs such as journaling and psychoeducation. The use of gamification within the app also allows patients to engage.
“Data from a completed questionnaire on the NeuroFlow platform highlights the health impact of a multidisciplinary hospital; 67% of patients in intensive care received a 50% reduction of depression within 4-8 months. We help team members achieve transformative results. “
