The proof is in the numbers: Legacy Health Partners is delivering value and incentive payments
Legacy Health Partners (LHP) launched its 2016 clinical integration program with nearly twice as many quality improvement measures than the prior year. In addition, LHP greatly expanded the type and number of resources and services to help providers deliver more value for every health care dollar spent.
The work and investment of the past two years produced impressive, quantifiable results:
- Legacy Health Partners met targets for 16 of 22 network measures focused on quality, efficiency and patient health.
- The network met four wellness targets for adult cancer screenings and well-child visits.
- Health plan members attributed to an LHP provider compared to a non-LHP provider were more likely to have a shorter inpatient length of stay, be screened for breast cancer, have a drug filled with a generic rather than a brand drug for tracked chronic conditions, and be admitted to an in-network hospital.
- LHP-attributed members were less likely than non-LHP attributed members to have an ED visit and be readmitted to the hospital following an inpatient stay.
The financial value produced by the network’s is also crystal clear.
- LHP realized $1.1 million in shared savings through performance on the Legacy Employee Health Plan (LEHP) contract.
- LHP exceeded the LEHP contract target for per-member, per-month expenditures by $9.
- Care Support Resources made a significant contribution to contract performance due to:
– Lower average inpatient length-of-stay (3.3 days) than the LHP clinical integration program goal of 3.5 days
– Meeting the target for generic drug utilization: 96.4% of prescriptions were filled with generic drugs for selected drug classes
– 47 fewer ED visits compared to 2015
- Based on performance, 156 practices earned $1,193,262 in clinical integration program incentive funds.
