This partnership will enable PCHP to deliver elite care management by focusing on productive, dynamic engagement with targeted, impactable members. This approach meets members where they are to drive positive behavior change with the goal of achieving the triple aim – impacting cost, outcomes, and the member experience. It takes a multidisciplinary care team approach to deliver our condition management services. The team includes clinical and nonclinical professionals, including registered nurses, social workers, health coaches, enrollment specialists, a pharmacist, respiratory therapist, and a diabetes educator.

“After a comprehensive evaluation process, we selected HGS AxisPoint Health because of their National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) accredited Population Health Management and Disease Management programs, scalability and experience in Texas,” said Mark Clanton, Chief Medical Officer, Parkland Community Health Plan. “We knew about AxisPoint Health’s Medicaid work with the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. We are looking forward to partnering with them to help our members lead healthier lives.”
The disease management program is a care management service that will bring PCHP additional cost savings through lower cost of care. The programs focus intensively on a member’s gaps in care that, left open, result in high-cost near-term events and poorer health outcomes.
