RAM Technologies, Inc., the perennial leader in the development of enterprise software for Medicare Advantage and Special Needs health plans, is pleased to announce the availability of a new report as part of the “Sharing Knowledge to Improve Healthcare Administration” (SKIHA) program. This month, members of the SKIHA program (free registration) are granted complimentary access to the RAM report, Reducing the Impact of Social Isolation for Seniors During and After COVID-19.
The COVID-19 pandemic has precipitated sweeping social distancing measures aimed at slowing the spread of the virus. These restrictions have changed life for most Americans, particularly seniors, who are both more vulnerable to the virus as well as being a more socially isolated demographic prior to the outbreak. Approximately $6.7 billion in Medicare spending each year is due to factors related to social isolation, providing MA insurers with tangible incentive to address this silent malady.
During this unprecedented time, families, friends, payers and community organizations have risen to the challenge, finding new and innovative ways of reinforcing connections with seniors. These strategies run the gamut from sending a letter in the mail to technology to enable remote interaction. As social isolation continues to be an ongoing concern, health plans can learn much from these interventions to support physical and mental health. This article takes a deeper look at the ways in which healthcare payers can facilitate increased support for their members.
