My name is Lori Jackson and I am the case manager on duty at Common Health. I have a Master’s degree in Gerontology with a concentration in Professional Geriatric Care Management. I have extensive background in Long-Term Care Managed Care practices being a former employee of Humana; which involved coordinating the development of acute and long-term care plans for patients by meeting with patients, healthcare providers, and appropriate individuals to assess needs and integrate services required to effectively meet the patients skilled and unskilled services. In my current role at Common Health, my goal is to target the facilities that have a high number of hospitalizations and to work with the medical staff at these facilities to assess the patients needs. I strongly believe that when a patient’s needs are met by having the proper services in place; this helps the patient to avoid unnecessary hospitalizations, while also helping the patient to properly age in place.
