Incorporating nutritional risk screening with case management initiatives.

Abstract

Keystone 65, the Medicare Program of Keystone Health Plan East, has designed case management programs around the needs of America's seniors. Keystone 65 utilizes a health risk assessment tool to aid in determining a member's health risk profile. This tool, the Health Risk Assessment Form, consists of the Short Form 36, the Nutrition Screening Initiative Nutrition Checklist, self-reported disease questions, and questions related to the health plan. Preliminary analysis has led Keystone to believe that the use of such an assessment tool will aid in identifying those members who need proactive case management and intervention. The increased use of the Checklist may provide the case management department with an important element in the assessment of Keystone 65 members.
