The RITZ calls for concurrent change at three levels:
- Service Delivery Operations
- Financial Agreements
- Executive Leadership
In order to fill the gaps in the regional health care system, partners come together and work collaboratively at each of the three organizational levels.
AIMM has been working with communities for several years testing new and improved methods for bringing the RITZ model to people who can benefit. Studies have shown that effective medication management can reduce the use of emergency departments, lower the rate of inpatient admissions, and reduce the percent of people re-admitted within 30 days of hospitalization. This helps reduce the total cost of care to the U.S. health care system.
