SWHR works with Landmark Health to boost care of medically complex patients

Medically complex patients, such as older patients with multiple chronic conditions, are a driver of medical service utilization, including hospital admissions and emergency department visits. Introducing medical services in the home through Landmark Health in partnership with SWHR can drive down utilization rates and improve clinical outcomes.

Landmark uses predictive analytics to help patients receive the right care providers at the right time to decrease hospitalizations, said Pamela Sullivan, MD, Chief Clinical Officer at Landmark.

SWHR’s partnership with Landmark is expected to reduce the total cost of care for SWHR’s medically complex patients, said Jason Fish, MD, Chief Medical Officer and Senior Vice President at SWHR.

 

“With a busy practice that has 2,000 to 2,500 patients and a set of complex patients, this partnership serves to reduce the risk of burnout among our providers,” Fish said.
