Coordinating the Care Coordinators
A complex patient can have numerous care managers, case managers and care coordinators at any given time with payers, hospital systems, primary care offices, behavioral health providers, social service providers and others offering care coordination services to reduce unnecessary utilization of services. There is a need to systematically identify all of the players and improve communication to reduce duplication and cost of care, improve care quality, and create a better experience for the patient.
The Steadman Group has worked with care coordinators from disparate community organizations to systematically improve communication among primary care, behavioral health, social services, home care, hospice and others, thereby reducing fragmentation and improving the patient experience.

Patient Centered Medical Home
Improving access to comprehensive primary care in rural areas is critical to improving health outcomes and lowering costs.
The Steadman Group has developed and implemented models for improving access to advanced primary care practices in rural areas. Our staff participates in nationally-recognized medical home development efforts for safety-net populations to improve care and optimize use of resources.
Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment
"..the opioid epidemic has created a seismic shift in the way our healthcare system treats substance abuse..."
Overdose is now one of the 10 leading causes of death in the United States. The unprecedented rise of the opioid epidemic has created a seismic shift in the way our healthcare system treats substance abuse.
The Steadman Group works with health systems, health plans, providers, nonprofits, and public health agencies to improve the systems that address substance abuse. Our staff have experience from primary prevention-- provider education and community interventions to preempt substance abuse in the first place-- to tertiary prevention, helping improve treatment options for people experiencing substance abuse disorders. We have designed and implemented comprehensive substance abuse prevention and treatment models for healthcare plans.
We keep abreast of current developments in substance abuse policy and funding both locally and nationally. We work to apply integrated care models to substance abuse treatment. Many of our staff have clinical experience in behavioral health and social services, helping to actualize our clients’ vision to improve care for these devastating, multi-faceted conditions.
