Caravan’s team of accountable care experts have structured a team-based approach that helps to optimize the skills of every member of the collective health care team. By incorporating governance, change management, practice transformation, and targeted clinical initiatives, staff and providers use data and analytics along with user-friendly technology to not only enhance patient care but to also identify gaps in care and areas where there is potential to proactively intervene on behalf of a patient.

Team-based care encourages each member of the team to work at the top of their license, certification, and skill set. Front office staff, billers and coders, nurses, and physicians all have an important role. This team-based model is dedicated to preventive care. Initiatives such as chronic care management and annual wellness visits help the care team make proactive decisions which lead to fewer hospital readmissions and prevents unnecessary emergency department and hospital visits.

When team-based care is optimized, physicians have more time to spend with their patients because administrative duties are shared across the team. This value-based model of care functions differently than fee-for-service models. An ACO requires a financial investment, yet team-based care helps value-based care pay for itself. The model generate new population health revenue and helps set the foundation to achieve shared savings, quality bonuses, and more. Value-based care is the future of health care, and the team-based approach is a core component.

Caravan provides tools and resources including Caravan Coach, our technology platform that streamlines care management and patient engagement activities and Wellpepper, our patient engagement tool that helps patients maintain an accessible connection to their care team. The proven team-based care model from Caravan Health results in healthier patients and happier clinicians.

Caravan’s proven model consistently outperforms national averages which is why Caravan clients lead the nation in accountable care services. In 2019 and 2020, Caravan clients brought home $120M in share savings – dollars that were distributed to the participants doing the work. 100% of Caravan clients in collaborative ACOs received shared savings and are predicted to do the same this year.
