Adherence Management (AdM) Process

BEARS Adherence Management (AdM) "pronounced ADAM" Coaching® is the process of promoting patient adherence to their care plan to aid in reducing unplanned hospital readmissions. AdM Coaching begins on admission with identifying at-risk patients. AdM Coaches, with their patients, look for patient perceived "punishing consequences", develop a patient centered Adherence Improvement Plan and follow their progress after discharge. The power of positive reinforcement is used in support of new habit initiatives built in their plan of care. Adherence Management will effect everything from medication adherence to physical therapies and diet changes. AdM Coaches® continue the work of patient adherence where everything else is left on discharge, at the hospital doors.

How does it effect my Bottom-line?

Our comprehensive process starts at admission and follows at-risk patients through the post-discharge to help promote adherence and produce healthy habits.

Your hospital group or private practice can see a significant positive change and a reduction in unplanned readmission rates. This, in turn, can reduce "quality" hold-back amounts from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (and potentially from third-party payers). For many hospitals, this may represent savings of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Larger hospitals may appreciate several million dollars per year.
