Palliative Illness Management - PIM™

Structured, Consistent Approach to Community-Based Palliative Care

Drawing upon more than 20 years’ experience in managing over 5 million patients suffering from serious or advanced illness, Turn-Key delivers high-quality community-based palliative care to health plan members. We do this by executing on a strategy of identifying, convening and standardizing:

Identify members earlier in their disease progression who are likely going to be overmedicalized during the last 6-12 months of life using claims data and predictive analytics / AI.

Convene, train and manage local and national networks of palliative care trained nurses and social workers to engage effectively with identified members.

Standardize, monitor and report on palliative engagement through our proprietary palliative EHR using Turn-Key Health’s Palliative Activation Scale (PAS), which is the measure of a patient’s propensity to adopt a palliative care approach.

This rapidly scalable solution seamlessly integrates with, and extends, existing case and utilization management programs, to deliver a solution that improves quality of life and decreases cost.

Moving Patient-Focused Palliative Care to the Home

Facilitating the palliative medical home, our care model provides an extra level of supportive care to the patient and caregiver where they live.

Extending the reach of care management and enhancing care coordination, the PIM™ network identifies and assists in filling gaps in care, conducts palliative care assessments, establishes goals of care and advance care plans, and communicates with both health plan case management and primary treating physicians.

Delivering a solution that is patient-centered, data-driven and evidence-based, PIM™ helps members suffering from a serious or advanced illness remain at home
