CareSource Selects Pure Healthcare to offer its Innovative Model of Care to Southwest Ohio Members with Chronic Health Conditions
The partnership between Pure Healthcare and CareSource represents a significant step forward in improving care management for individuals facing chronic health conditions such as cancer, cardiovascular or respiratory disease. With a focus on proactive symptom management and community-based interventions, the partnership will help individuals achieve better health outcomes and live each day to the fullest.
CareSource will identify members within a 12-county region of Southwest Ohio who are most in need of chronic care coordination. Pure Healthcare will then provide each member with a dedicated care manager, care coordination between the member and their healthcare team, guided education based on the member’s health needs, medication review, care management tools, personalized care plans, access to community resources, and support towards self-management of a patient illness.
“We are excited to partner with CareSource to demonstrate the value of proactive symptom management and community-based interventions for members facing chronic health conditions,” said Anthony Evans, President of Pure Healthcare. “Our mission is to help individuals overcome the challenges of living with a chronic illness, and this partnership provides us with the opportunity to reach our full potential in a value-driven environment.”
Pure Healthcare is committed to improving the lives of individuals facing chronic illnesses by providing proactive symptom management and community-based interventions. Through this partnership, CareSource will be able to leverage Pure Healthcare support to help their members achieve better health outcomes. Pure Healthcare and CareSource will work together to provide evidenced-based care for the most vulnerable of our population that addresses the physical, emotional, and social needs of patients, leading to better health outcomes and improved quality of life for CareSource members.
