Insignia Health's Patient Activation Measure now available through CaseTrakker care management solutions to streamline care coordination

CaseTrakker® Dynamo incorporates Insignia Health’s Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) survey directly into its care management platform to help build and track personalized care plans that increase activation and improve health outcomes.  

CaseTrakker and Insignia Health are excited to announce their partnership allowing for the seamless integration of PAM directly into CaseTrakker Dynamo’s care management platform.  CaseTrakker Dynamo offers a unique, customizable, web-based interface that has been designed to allow the integration of external care management tools directly into its software.  This allows case managers to provide excellent care management using a wide variety of industry tools without leaving the application. 

Health plans, hospital systems and health service organizations using CaseTrakker software can now administer PAM to their members and receive a PAM score and level within seconds.  This capability provides case managers with seamless access to actionable information for generating tailored care plans that enhance condition management strategies for their members.

According to Michael Simpson, founder and CEO of CaseTrakker Software, “The CaseTrakker Software team works to evolve our product to offer customers a solution that exceeds the needs of the continually changing Health Care market.  Partnering with Insignia Health to build PAM into CaseTrakker’s care management platform suite further expands the efficiencies available to manage members across the continuum of care.” 

CaseTrakker also captures a historical record of successive PAM scores and levels, allowing case managers to evaluate the effectiveness of each member’s goals and action steps toward increasing activation.  Activation level, as revealed by PAM, has proven to be one of the strongest predictors of health behavior and outcomes.  PAM is also an NQF-endorsed performance measure. 

“We know that low-activated individuals utilize more healthcare resources and have the most to gain from health support programs,” said Craig Swanson, President of Insignia Health.  “The integration of PAM within CaseTrakker provides access to an important vital sign that case management professionals can reference to guide the support that they provide to their members.”

“With over 70 organizations using CaseTrakker daily to meet their medical management needs for Medicare, Medicaid, Special Needs and Commercial groups, I am confident that together CaseTrakker and Insignia Health can improve the quality of care that individuals receive and help case managers work more effectively and efficiently,” concluded Michael Simpson.
