2016 CI program performance
How did the LHP network perform on the 2016 clinical integration performance measures? How did my practice and providers do on their measures? When will I know if my practice has earned an incentive?
Answers to your questions are coming. Here’s what we’re working on:
- Ensuring accurate and complete claims data is critical to our ability to track and report network improvement on the quality measures. Claims data is accepted through April, so performance on the LHP network quality measures won’t be finalized until then. Stay tuned.
- Later this month LHP will be emailing practices their preliminary scorecards showing provider/practice measure performance, along with information about an appeals process if you believe our records of your practice/provider measures are inaccurate.
- Practices will receive any earned incentives this summer after all data has been finalized. You can read the Pay for Value document posted on the LHP team site to understand the basics of the incentive fund design methodology. (LHP team site access is restricted to LHP members.) We also published a story in the September 2016 newsletter.

MACRA survey results
LHP recently asked practices to complete a MACRA impact survey to give LHP some insight into how prepared network providers feel in terms of their practices’ ability to respond to the requirements of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act. The survey highlighted several areas of particular interest and/or concern from LHP practices and now LHP is preparing resources to support practices. Read more here.
New program supports patients at risk for readmission
Care Support Resources (CSR) recently launched a new care management program—called Transitions of Care—that provides hands-on support for at-risk patients following discharge from a Legacy hospital. An R.N. case manager works with patients for 30 days following discharge from the hospital to aid in their recovery and reduce the risk for readmission. Eligibility for this service is based on insurance coverage. Read more here.
