Morning breakout: Lifesprk Partners with North Memorial Health

The Star Tribune: North Memorial Partners With Elder Care Provider To Screen Patients For Problems  A new care coordination program to predict and address the health needs of North Memorial’s elderly patients is different from prior attempts, its leaders said, in one key way. …Under the new program, a group of North Memorial’s elderly patients is screened for risks of chronic diseases and complications, and high medical spending. High-risk patients then receive home visits from Lifesprk nurses to identify solutions to maintain or improve their health, even if those solutions have nothing to do with medicine. (Olson, 12/14)
