As Aspire Health is being decommissioned, ensure you are setting your patients up with the Enhanced Community Care Management (ECCM) team for specialized care coordination, palliative, and supportive care. The ECCM team helps members living with serious illness live their best life possible while maintaining their independence in the community regardless of homebound status or specific skilled need.
ECCM’s interdisciplinary care team, including physicians, advanced practice providers (NP or PA), nurses and social workers, are all trained in motivational interviewing, health literacy, and how to help those struggling with social determinants of health (SDoH). Clinicians provide team-driven care directed by whole-person centered outcomes. Care is focused on activating members in engaging in the self-management of their chronic conditions, quality of life, symptom burden, emotional well-being, advanced care planning, communication, continuity of care and caregiver burden.
ECCM is a free, flexible program that reduces disruption for the member, family, and caregiver by streamlining communication across health care settings to ensure the member’s needs are matched with the appropriate resources. The team also provides closer oversight of the member and their illness (through virtual and in home care – including nursing facilities) while working with the member’s doctor and health care providers.
For more information on this program and how to refer members to the ECCM team, review the ECCM page on the Provider Resource Center under Care Management Programs.
