The New Care Transformation Unit
PSCN is launching a new business unit within the organization: the Care Transformation Unit (CTU). At the heart of the CTU’s development is the Triple Aim Model, a framework focused on care/service integration and social determinants of health, through which the team will function and carry out its mission:
- Better Care for Individuals: integrated wellness model across time and location
- Lower Per Capital Costs: potential to take risk and gain-sharing
- Better Health for Populations: older persons with chronic conditions
The new staff of the CTU will be a dedicated team of experts, focused on the identification, development, implementation, and commercialization of transformational and scalable care management programs and services. The CTU will fundamentally shift care delivery for vulnerable seniors. The team of the CTU will function as the mechanism to seek and evaluate new business opportunities that have the potential to transform the care experience for seniors in the community at-large and the region, while rebalancing the PSCN portfolio of services and corresponding revenue. To maximize learning and strengthen the entire organization, the CTU will engage with existing service lines throughout PSCN, elevating Care Management and Managed Care readiness and potential opportunities to innovate by leveraging existing assets, competencies, and collaboration across the broader health care ecosystem.
