We rely on validated approaches to evaluate existing disease management strategies. We establish appropriate evaluation frameworks and then compare programs to others that are already validated in order to refine or redesign programs to yield greater clinical and cost outcomes.
One of our most common engagements with health plans is helping design programs to measure and engage members in healthy behaviors, often described as weight management. After identifying target populations, we work with our clients to determine the most appropriate healthy lifestyle programs, including self-help, coaching, medical, surgical, and alternative strategies.
Opioid Use Treatment Integration and Coordination of Care
We help design programs to coordinate care, provide community education, psychosocial services, interventions and recovery support to support long term improvements in care. We also provide a framework to allow for more effective provider collaboration in coordinating care among patients undergoing treatment. We provide assistance calculating Return-On-Investment valuation of existing and proposed systemic treatment strategies so that payers and brokers can advise employer customers of most sustainable programs.
Patient Engagement and Social Determinants of Health
Karna’s understanding of engaging populations based on where they are born, live, learn, work, play, worship and age enables us to create programs specific to meet their needs. We have seen a dramatic effect on health outcomes by reaching members where they are and creating engagement to impact their health in a manner that is culturally and linguistically appropriate. By providing evidenced-based approaches to patient engagement, we ensure that the right plans are applied to the right members at the right time and in the right manner.
