1. Care Coordination
    • Inherent in design, not layered on top or outside system
    • At risk – care coordination benefits financially from better outcomes
    • Frequent, constant interaction & physical location of providers & residents

  2. Shift transfers level of care risk from Medicare/Medicaid programs to WELShift

  3. With expansion of Medicaid program contemplated by WELShift, vastly more middle-class people can receive needed services when needed rather than after it is too late

  4. WELShift taps into home equity of participants in responsible, non-threatening way and assures individuals can never run out of funds

  5. Post-acute services and bundling are at core of WELShift program design

  6. Medical home model is at core of WELShift program design

  7. With primary care physicians and practitioners on site every day, hospitalizations should be dramatically reduce and more targeted – true emergencies and specialized needs

  8. WELShift, through collocation of services and housing, significantly increased likelihood of residents receiving
    • Appropriate interventions, follow ups and timely services
    • Successful and rigorous prevention activities and programs

  9. Capitated payment methodology allows WELShift flexibility to use funds where best spent

  10. WELShift has no interest in providing more services or procedures than appropriate, with incentive to:
    • Reduce volume of services that are not proven or necessary
    • Drive quality initiatives and eliminate internally caused complications such as rehospitalizations
    • Focus on long-term, not short-term, health and needs of residents
