Unmatched and scalable outcomes 

Unmatched outcomes are achieved at scale because of our ability to identify and enroll families into our proven Digital Caregiver Activation Program (DCAP).

The following outcomes are based on responses from caregivers enrolled in Ceresti’s DCAP, from claims data of the care-recipient (member) and from engagement in our tablet-based program.  Many of these results are statistically significant (p < 0.05).  The outcomes below are only a subset of all of the outcomes we track.  Please contact us for details about our most current outcomes. 

Increase activation and improve caregiver wellness

Ceresti’s Digital Caregiver Activation Program (DCAP) is optimized to increase the knowledge, skills and confidence of family caregivers in caring for an aging loved one (i.e., your member/patient). The impact of activation on member outcomes is highest when caregivers feel more supported, engage in self-care, and feel better about their mental and physical health. ​

Outcomes from monthly assessments completed by caregivers in the first 180 days of their DCAP’s highlight significant increases in activation and improvements in caregiver wellness. ​

Increase caregiver activation

Ceresti’s DCAP increases caregivers’ understanding of their loved one’s care plan increases, increased caregivers’ ability to recognize changes in member condition, and increases caregivers’ confidence to address emerging member health issues.

Increase caregiver wellness

Heart-icon

Ceresti’s DCAP increases caregivers’ feelings of being supported in their role as a caregiver. Caregivers also reported high satisfaction with their DCAP (net promoter score = 80). In addition, caregivers reported fewer mental unhealthy days (in the last 30 days), fewer physical unhealthy days and fewer days of loneliness. 

Reduce hospitalizations by 80%

We completed the first-ever study demonstrating, with statistical significance, that activating family caregivers reduces healthcare cost for members (care recipients) living with dementia.

A summary of third-party validated outcomes, determined versus a propensity-matched comparison group, is provided in this validation report.

Cost savings

Based on our validated outcomes, gross savings of $6,500 per enrolled member per year (PEMPY) are attributable to Ceresti’s Digital Caregiver Activation Program (DCAP). 

Increase RAF accuracy

Activated family caregivers are able to detect changes in a loved one’s condition, before they worsen.  As caregivers become more knowledgeable and confident in addressing emerging issues on behalf of their loved one (i.e., your member/patient), their ability to effectively engage the health care system increases.  Activated caregivers are more likely to adhere to their loved one’s care plan. They are also better at accurately communicating the status of a loved one’s medications and chronic conditions during an office visit.  

For providers whose patients are supported by an activated family caregiver, we observed the following using claims data:

  • An increase in the accuracy of coding for persistent risk-adjusted conditions (e.g., conditions, like dementia, that don’t go away)​
  • An increase in the accuracy of coding for newly diagnosed risk-adjusted conditions

Activated caregivers increase the RAF accuracy for (care recipient) members. Ceresti’s Digital Caregiver Activation Program (DCAP) will drive incremental revenue of $5,000 per enrolled member per year (PEMPY).

Process metrics

Caregivers who participate in their Ceresti programs spend an average of 40 minutes per week engaging in health education, coaching calls, messaging, assessments and other content, and complete an average of 2.2 remote risk assessments per week.  More than 90% of caregivers engage on a monthly basis.  The average month-to-month continue rate is 97%, and a typical caregiver remains enrolled for 6.6 months before graduating.

“I feel like I have been on a journey with this program and I hate to see the journey end...I have been learning a lot.”

Adult Child Caregiver

“Your dementia caregivers program is a wonderful support system, which is a great help to anyone caring for a loved one. The Ceresti program is designed to be very easy to understand and work with. Dementia is a very difficult illness to understand. I have and will continue to encourage anyone in a situation like mine to contact you and look into joining your program.”

Spousal Caregiver

“I want to thank Ceresti Health for all the help and knowledge they have given me to take better care of my husband. It has been a wonderful learning experience...our coach was always concerned with his and my health. It was a pleasure working with her.”

Spousal Caregiver

“I wanted to share with you our praise for the Ceresti team. My friend is so appreciative of your support each time she talks to you. She feels the training program has really made a difference and gives her affirmation she is doing the best she can for her husband. Her daughter, a general practice physician, is very impressed with the program as well.”

Family Friend

“I’m so much calmer, not as stressed. I’m not afraid of the unknown, and that’s a big part of it. Ceresti has helped me so much, and you have been such a big help…even when things were a little off center, you were right there and let me know that somebody is there. Not being afraid, is huge. I’m not afraid anymore, and the anxiety isn’t there like it used to be.”

Spousal Caregiver

"You know, I have told everyone that I know that has [Health Plan] about your program, and I feel that [Provider] should make this resource available to anyone that has a loved one with dementia/Alzheimer's. There are a lot of us here, and I really think it would be helpful. I also told the [Provider] nurse about the program and how it should be offered WORLDWIDE. This has changed my relationship with my mom so much. I have learned a LOT, especially things I did not realize I was doing. My stress level is way down, way less -- there is just so much less I have to deal with. This program has changed my life, even more than it has changed my mom's life."

Adult Child Caregiver

“The past two days have been challenging. My mom is sleeping more and doesn’t want to get dressed or changed out of her wet depends. She seems agitated, and won’t answer the simplest of questions. I have had to take a step back and let her decide when she is ready... I can tell you that without the Ceresti program, I would not be in the best place mentally. I have been able to change my reactions to her actions. I feel so much better about the care I am giving with the help of this program. I will be forever grateful for the tools Ceresti has given me."
