How the Program Works

Conversio Health's Respiratory Care Coordination Program provides a team of respiratory therapists and respiratory specialty staff who utilize a comprehensive predictive modeling assessment to determine the appropriate level of physician-directed interventions. Compliance with nationally recognized clinical guidelines, establishes a risk stratified plan of care with home delivery of respiratory medications and ongoing telephonic monitoring.

Identification and Engagement

The majority of referrals to our Care Coordination Program come from a comprehensive assessment, claims data analysis, Health Plan Nurses, and direct Physician referrals. According to the severity of their illness, identified members are placed into one of four risk categories with an individualized physician-directed Plan of Care. A medication profile is performed on every member and counseling by a clinical pharmacist is provided as necessary.

RITEMedTM Compliance Management

Our program is designed to help members comply with the physician Plan of Care, which involves several key clinical performance indicators based on national standards. While working proactively with each member we track their adherence to these standards. In addition, we track compliance with a number of interventions focused on creating a favorable program outcome along with the provision of respiratory educational materials focused on proper chronic respiratory condition management.
