At Advanced Care Management Solutions (ACMS) we deliver clinically
managed interventions to navigate the inequities of Social Determinants of
Health for the vulnerable patients we serve.
Scope of Need
All levels of healthcare seek care management solutions to inclusively engage patients and resources to achieve high-quality outcomes while curtailing inefficient spending. Our services enable patients to comply with medically sound care solutions. The individuals we seek to serve are predominantly elders and others living with physical and/or behavioral health challenges.
We understand the reality that patient compliance in regard to following healthcare guidance is based upon their ability to access community resources. Unfortunately, many patients may be adversely impacted by the inequities described as social determinants of health. We live in the communities we serve which affords us in-depth knowledge of navigating these barriers to more appropriately assist each patient and ensure their needs are met.
UDS focuses on improving patient outcomes by providing assistance for non-medical needs in conjunction with medical collaboration. When these items are unmet patients’ health may worsen and drive up costs. When assistance is provided for non-medical needs we see improved health and quality of life. That is what UDS is all about.
