Full LHP members (physicians and independently practicing Advanced Practice Providers) must complete the LHP orientation by the end of this month to qualify to receive any earned incentive payout at the end of the pilot. You can complete the orientation online through Legacy’s E+ education portal or attend one of the three remaining in-person orientations. Questions? Email Kristin Gilmer or call 503-415-5109.
EMR data strategy approved
Integration of electronic medical records (EMRs) is vital to LHP’s ability to support future performance measures and scorecards that will give providers better, more meaningful information than is currently available through payer scorecards. The Data and Systems Committee recommended and the LHP Board approved a strategy that allows LHP to pull data relevant to clinical integration from a majority of LHP primary care providers over the next few years. Practices with more providers will be prioritized.
LHP will begin connecting with PCP practices that are on:
- GE Centricity
In addition, the strategy includes pulling data from Wellcentive, a hub that will allow LHP to connect to multiple pediatric care sites with a single connection.
