According to the World Health Organization (WHO) depressions are predicted to become the second most frequent illness diagnosis in the year 2020. The continuous increase for psychiatric and psychosomatic illness leads to high cost expenditures for the health care sector.
To avoid the occurrence of inappropriate health care services in the outpatient area, chronicity, relapse, intensive and long-term cost-of-illness, we orchestrate a care management approach that merges different health care aspects to deliver:
We investigate the health care insurance provider’s potential for case-control and care management regulations. The results are transformed into specially tailored concepts and delivered to providers of reimbursement services, insurance consulting services, validation services and case and care management.
We recognize early illness indicators, such as work incapacity and sick-pay cases. In the initial stage of the illness the patients are approached to ensure they receive the most optimal care and that a speedy recovery for returning to their work environment is guaranteed. In effect, an increase in morbidity and cost intensive follow-up treatments are avoided.
We examine inpatient psychiatric and psychosomatic treatment in hospitals and secure the patient’s subsequent discharge into a stable outpatient environment. Our aim is to optimize hospital care by interlocking efficient economic standards with the best medical treatment.
We provide acute consulting and intervention services for health care recipients, who have consumed comprehensive health care benefits over a long period of time. This includes managing the patient’s immediate medical environment by working together with hospitals, health care insurance providers, medical and social service providers as well as offering telephone support hotlines for specific outpatient needs. In this way, we initialize the process for a fast occupational rehabilitation and thus achieve a stabilization of the illness.
