On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Krisda H. Chaiyachati, MD, MPH, MSHP, about the study he co-wrote entitled “Economic Outcomes of Insurer-Led Care Management for High-Cost Medicaid Patients.” In the study, Chaiyachati and co-authors aim to evaluate the impact of the Community-Based Care Management program on total costs of care and utilization among adult high-need, high-cost patients enrolled in a Medicaid managed care organization. The program included teams of community health care workers and nurses who coordinated care for this cohort.

Chaiyachati is an assistant professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine and a clinical innovation manager at Penn Medicine’s Center for Healthcare Innovation

The study was published in the July edition of The American Journal of Managed Care®.
