Geisinger Health Plan's Health Navigator Program leverages the partnership between the payer and primary care physicians, putting nurse care managers on site with primary care in a medical home model. These care managers focus proactively on transitions of care, home safety and patient-empowering self-management action plans. Geisinger reports an approximate 20 percent reduction in readmissions for those enrolled in the program.

The Geisinger Health Plan Case Study can be found via the AMGA website here: http://www.amga.org/wcm/PI/Collabs/COPD/Compendiums/201213/geisinger.pdf.
