The Race to Value Podcast

30-10-2023 • 58 min

In the Race to Value, we must recognize that quality of life is the ultimate currency of healthcare, and this aim is all the more important in senior living facilities.  Transforming health outcomes for skilled nursing and senior living populations is not just a goal; it's a commitment to providing the care and dignity our elders deserve.  This week, we profile a leader in the value movement who leads a company on a mission “to improve the health, happiness, and dignity of senior living residents”. We are joined by Mark Price, CEO of Curana Health – a leader who lives by the mantra that “extreme passion” is the single most important ingredient to reform the American healthcare system. Curana Health is a provider of value-based primary care services exclusively for the senior living industry, including in nursing homes, assisted/independent living facilities, CCRC/life plan communities and affordable senior housing communities. Curana Health serves more than 1,100 senior living community partners across 30 states and participates in the MSSP ACO, ACO Reach and Medicare Advantage programs with CMS. Backed by more than $300M in venture capital funding, the organization is poised to disrupt care delivery in senior living on a meaningful scale through innovative care models and applied analytics. In this episode, you will learn about how to transform health outcomes for skilled nursing and senior living populations through extreme passion.  We cover such topics as how to leverage APMs such as MSSP and ACO REACH in the senior living setting, the performance results of Curana Health across their value-based portfolio, technology innovation, palliative care, the state of the nursing home industry, and future trends in the shift to home-based care delivery. Episode Bookmarks: 01:30 Introduction to Mark Price, CEO of Curana Health. 03:45 An estimated 27M more people are aging into the 75+ cohort through 2050, resulting in rising age and higher health acuity levels of residents moving into senior living. 05:00 Curana Health has achieved a 39% reduction in 30-day hospital readmissions and a 37% reduction in total hospital admissions among Medicare Advantage I-SNP members. 06:00 “There are many subsectors in the industry where value-based care can succeed.  The important thing is ensuring that your people have an extreme amount of passion for making it work.” 07:00 Founding story of Curana Health based on how we would want our loved ones to be cared for at the end of life. 08:45 The majority of Americans will spend some time in senior living or skilled nursing in the final years of their life. 10:00 Elite Patient Care ACO performed in the top 1% of ACOs in its first year of operation, achieving PBPY savings amount of $2,235—the highest PBPY for any first-year MSSP ACO since 2012. 11:30 Curana Health also has one of the top performing ACO REACH and risk-based MA I-SNP programs in the country. 11:45 “Our core business is not a payment model.
