Blue KC Care Management Team Helps Employees Keep Health on Track

September 2022

Blue KC supports your employees wherever they are in their health journeys. One way we do this is through the Blue KC Care Management Team and Blue KC Care Management app.

Support to help employees feel their best

Our Care Management Team includes clinical nurses, social workers, patient advocates, and other healthcare professionals ready to get involved. They can help employees manage chronic health conditions, provide support and encouragement after a diagnosis, offer resources for a healthy pregnancy, transition after a hospital visit, share inspiration to achieve wellness goals, and answer health questions. The team personalizes a plan based on each employee’s unique objectives

Behind the scenes, for each employee that connects with the Care Management Team, the team continuously monitors a dashboard. The dashboard surfaces insights about preventative health needs, such as flu shots or annual eye exams, and flags employee survey responses related their health, wellness, and nutrition. Our team then works with your employees to schedule care and offer real-time support.

Tap into the Care Management app

One of the best ways to connect with the Care Management Team is with the Blue KC Care Management app. The app empowers employees to:

Chat with our Compassionate Care Team

Secure, two-way messaging ranks as our app’s most popular feature. Employees can ask questions and get fast answers from someone trained to discuss their care management program, medications, symptoms, and health concerns. If a question needs to be escalated, the Care Team will immediately pull in a nurse.

Measure and own health goals

In addition to a built-in physical activity tracker, the app’s “Me” tab shows completed tasks, medications taken, progress made within a care management program, and information about upcoming procedures. Real-time metrics can help motivate employees to reach their goals.

Research health questions

The “Library” tab curates a collection of educational articles to read or star for later. Articles may be specific to a procedure, condition, or medication as well as general wellness tips. Every article is reviewed by a medical professional to ensure it is current and accurate. 

Join a targeted program

Connect to programs developed by clinicians with expertise in diabetes, smoking cessation, weight loss, and chronic kidney disease. Our app helps hold employees accountable, so they stick with a program.

Stay organized
Get daily to-do items in a checklist, such as medication alerts, reminders to schedule appointments, check-in surveys, and suggested reading. Real-time prompts help employees stay on track and allow Care Managers to intervene, if needed.
