Log in to E+ using the same login you use to access your dashboard. The New Member Orientation is now available too. This 14-minute video is a great educational overview for new members and a helpful review for anyone.

What does the LHP Dashboard Manager do?

If you are your practice’s designated LHP Dashboard Manager (previously called Scorecard Manager), here are some tips for helping your providers be successful in the clinically integrated network:

  • Distribute important information from LHP to your practice providers
  • Serve as the primary point of contact for the LHP Member Relations Coordinator and your LHP Field Operations Adviser
  • Communicate any provider/practice changes (e.g. providers who have joined or left the practice, changes in address, email, etc.) to either the Member Relations Coordinator or your Field Operations Adviser
  • Attest to the quality measures in the dashboard on behalf of the practice and possibly on behalf of providers within the practice
  • Read the LHP monthly newsletter and any "Hot Topics" to stay on top of important news and information

Getting to know you - Results from 2015 payor and access survey

Last year LHP members were asked to fill out a payor and access survey (one of the 2015 performance measures.) The information helps LHP better understand the current contracting environment, member preferences and provider business practices. A sampling of LHP members, representing 109 practices, answered the survey. 

Current LHP practice contracts:
13% capitation
20% partial capitation
9% bundled payments
27% shared savings

LHP practices prefer to move toward:
70% preferred commercial shared savings
13% preferred commercial capitation
13% preferred Medicare Advantage

Access (business practices):
Majority of survey respondents reported having coverage after hours and weekends
Majority of survey respondents reported providing between 6 and 8 same-day appointments
