“We’re training our 380 care coordinators on Athena Forum — among our 80 med groups all over Minnesota. This is 21st Century convenient!”

“We’re forecasting a 100 X ROI for one Athena Forum tuition of about $125 per person. This ROI is expressed as forecasting about $12,500 in reduced hospitalizations in a year.
–Assume one care coordinator gains better health coaching skills from Athena education,
–Assume that same care coordinator has a panel of 4,000 seniors,
–Assume that same care coordinator helps only ONE Medicare severe asthmatic to asthma-proof her home,
–Assume that Medicare asthmatic avoids one asthma hospitalization in a year.
The ROI then of avoiding one hospital admit at ~ $12,500 is then 100 X the Athena tuition of $125.00. Scale that to 100 people and you’re saving $1.2M in cost containment strategy. And this ROI could be conservative.”
