SHARE is now collaborating with Arkansas Total Care BH PASSE (Provider-owned Arkansas Shared Saving Entity) in providing access to daily reports for Medicaid eligible residents of Arkansas when those patients are admitted and discharged from the Emergency Room and Inpatient Encounter Discharges in the last 24 hours. At Arkansas Total Care, they are driven by a singular purpose, to transform the health of the community one person at a time. The experience their PASSE Partners bring offers a person-centered approach, designed to address whole-life needs, not just medical needs and SHARE is now assisting with this approach. By collaborating with the individuals they support, along with their families, caregivers, providers and guardians, their experience has demonstrated we can collectively improve quality of life of those we serve through access to community-based support, ultimately improving medical and behavioral outcomes.

LOCAL APPROACH & PARTNERSHIPS FOR BETTER OUTCOMES 

Arkansas Total Care understands that the best support is close to home.  That’s why they are managed and staffed locally—with local participants and providers serving as our chief advisors.

Arkansas Total Care works closely with advocacy groups and providers to help them implement person-centered, outcomes based care programs, manage cost and improve the overall quality of care delivered to their participants. Their local staff helps participants access care, coordinates referrals to health and social services, and addresses participant concerns and questions.

HIGH-TOUCH INTEGRATED CARE FOR INDIVIDUALS 

When it comes to providing quality support to people who need it most, Arkansas Total Care doesn't believe in a one-size-fits-all model. They know that to best serve their participants, Arkansas Total Care need to understand them and their individual needs, with a quality-of-life focused, inclusive approach. In fact, their participants are the most important part of their own team. Their person-centered planning approach puts participants at the head of their care coordination and decisions. 

Arkansas Total Care embraces a whole-health approach to care management and service coordination. They use advanced technology to provide care teams and providers with a unified view of their participants’ medical, social and functional needs. Their integrated approach allows us to connect traditionally fragmented services while linking participants to appropriate medical and non-medical community resources.
