The LHP team site was designed specifically for members of the LHP Network. If you’ve completed this year’s Clinical Integration Education (complete by June 30 for full points), you’re aware of the team site’s value as your one-stop shop for information and tools relevant to every aspect of our clinically integration network.
The team site now has a new look: information is clearly categorized and easier to find and timely action items are showcased in the upper right. Use your mouse to hover over each of the category headings and a description appears of what you’ll find in that category.
If you haven’t yet visited the team site, take a look. We think you’ll be impressed at the variety of resources available to support you. If you’re a frequent visitor, we know you’ll appreciate the crisp-looking home page and ease of finding what you’re looking for..
Care Support Resources delivers quantifiable benefits
"Care Support Resources has been an incredibly helpful service to my highest-need patients in coordinating their care, taking a load off our clinic staff and myself. Laura Cirotski has been wonderful to work with."
It’s clear from this comment from an LHP primary care provider that LHP’s Care Support Resources program is hitting on all four cylinders of the Quadruple Aim: Better health, reduced costs, enhanced patient experience and greater provider satisfaction. A few specifics: CSR patients eligible for colorectal cancer screenings were 1.8 times more likely than non-CSR members to have received an exam, and patients with diabetes were 2.5 times more likely than non-CSR members to have received the appropriate HbA1c screening. The CSR program also produced a reduction in ED visits and in-patient admissions. Read the whole story.
Special invitation: Orthopedic Pearls for Primary Care Providers on May 24
This is a special invitation for family and internal medicine providers in the LHP Network to come together to talk about musculoskeletal imaging. Data shows that LHP Network providers order more CT scans and MRIs than similar-sized health systems when we compare ourselves to benchmarks. What can we do to address this?
In the spirit of collaborative problem-solving, LHP is launching a new Clinical Collaboration Series. These evening educational meetings are an opportunity for PCPs and specialists to learn from and talk with other providers about best practices for patient co-management between primary care and specialty. Topics for the series will focus on clinical areas where we have an opportunity to decrease unnecessary variation, control the cost of care or improve clinical quality. The first in the series will focus on shoulder, hip and knee imaging. CME credit is available.
