Status One Representing only one percent of a provider's patients, those individuals at high risk for serious illness are undeniably the most challenging of all patient populations. This small set of patients typically account for up to forty percent of actual medical costs-often at the expense of both quality and profitability. To remain competitive, health care organizations must refocus clinical care on managing patients-not providers-and partner with patients, families, and communities to prevent the need for high-cost health care. Status One is the framework for this fundamental organizational change. Status One documents one of the most successful approaches to high-risk population health management, one that creates an aggressive system delivering consistently positive results. The leading architects of this pioneering approach-Samuel Forman and Matthew Kelliher-contribute to this comprehensive guide their firsthand experience and successes from programs across the United States.
Co-published with the Healthcare Assembly Press, Status One provides health care leaders with a new strategy for improving quality while reducing costs and provides a new conceptual framework for population health management. Forman and Kelliher share proactive, practical methods with health care leaders so they can
