Care management is a key strategy for health care organizations taking financial risk for their patients' costs and outcomes. Yet, many organizations struggle to answer the question: "What impact is our care management program having?" Given the investment in these programs, they deserve an answer.
A novel analysis by Evolent has isolated the impact of our partners' care management programs.

In fact, across three Medicare accountable care organizations, its impact was greater than 50% of their overall shared savings.
