Results and kudos - 2016 Clinical Integration Program results

In a word, the LHP network’s performance in 2016 was OUTSTANDING. 

We met 16 of our 22 network measures, including 4 wellness targets for adult cancer screenings and well-child visits. $1,193,262 in Clinical Integration Program incentive funds were earned by 156 practices, and LHP realized $1.1 million in shared savings through our performance on the Legacy Employee Health Plan contract. 

For a quick overview of our collective impacts on quality, cost and population health, read the LHP 2016 Impact Summary.

In addition to the results highlighted in the Impact Summary, we achieved these quality outcomes:

Members attributed to an LHP provider compared to a non-LHP provider were more likely to:
• Have a shorter inpatient length of stay 
• Have a well-child visit for all the age bands tracked (0-15 months, 3-6 years, and 13-17 years)
• Be screened for breast cancer
• Receive an eye exam and an HbA1c blood test (diabetic patients)
• Have appropriate asthma and CAD medication utilization 
• Have a drug filled with a generic rather than a name brand drug for tracked chronic conditions
• Be admitted to an in-network hospital

In addition, LHP-attributed members were less likely than non-LHP attributed members to:
• Have an ED visit
• Be readmitted to the hospital following an inpatient stay

Cost savings

The $1.1 million in shared savings realized through our performance on the Legacy Employee Health Plan contract was due in part to:
• More than 20% year-over-year savings for LEHP contract lives managed by Care Support Resources 
• Lower average inpatient length-of-stay (3.3 days) than our Clinical Integration Program goal of 3.5 days
• Meeting our 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

Positive cost trends demonstrate LHP’s impact

• Legacy Employee Health Plan costs stayed stable in 2016 after two years of increasing costs
• Legacy Employee Health Plan medical costs fell in 2016 after two years of significant increase
• Legacy Health Partners performance on per-member, per-month expenditure was favorable to target by $9
