PHILADELPHIA – April 29, 2019 – Care N’ Care (HMO/PPO) Health Plan, a Medicare Advantage plan in North Texas, announced today a partnership with Turn-Key Health, an Enclara Healthcare company that delivers a community-based palliative solution to health plans, provider organizations and their members with a serious or advanced illness. Through this partnership, Turn-Key will provide Care N’ Care members and their caregivers with its home-based Palliative Illness Management® (PIM) solution, which improves symptom management, establishes goals of care, promotes shared decision-making, and reduces unplanned and non-beneficial healthcare.
“We’re confident that this collaborative partnership will benefit our members who need additional support, strengthening the medical home, improving quality of care, and focusing on pain and symptom control while respecting their wishes regarding their care,” says David J. Sand, MD MBA, Chief Medical Officer of Care N’ Care. “PIM goes beyond traditional care coordination to address Social Determinants of Health in its approach, which results in better patient-centered care plans. The combination of Care N’ Care as a trusted healthcare partner and Turn-Key’s highly structured and consistent PIM® solution will effectively address the needs of our members who are struggling with the physical, psychological and social challenges of a serious illness.”
Greer Myers, President, Turn-Key, says, “We are very excited to be collaborating with the Care N’ Care team to expand their scope of supportive member services to include community-based palliative care. We continue to execute on our parent company’s (Enclara Healthcare) goal of simplifying complex care through our innovative, high-touch, home-based program, which engages members and caregivers to better align goals of care with individual treatment preferences.”
