Collaboration between care team members across the continuum was key to keeping him out of the hospital.
Hal’s COPD and heart disease had resulted in 8 ED encounters and 5 inpatient stays within a year. He’d been prescribed an inhaler, but his problems persisted.
With the Collective platform, Hal’s care manager was empowered to help. She was notified the next time he was in the emergency department with a flare-up and was able to intervene in real time, learning from the ED physician that Hal hadn’t obtained his prescribed inhaler because it was too expensive and wasn’t covered by his Medicare plan. She collaborated with Hal’s primary care physician and a clinical pharmacist to get an override through his plan and add insights about his needs to the platform.
Hal now has his inhaler, is well educated about his needs, and hasn’t required a trip to the hospital for his COPD since.
