Greetings, Legacy Health Partners community. Legacy Health is inviting LHP providers to sign up for Spōk Mobile, a secure messaging application being provided at no cost to all Legacy credentialed medical staff. You’ll receive all the details plus help from your Field Operations Adviser beginning next week, but I wanted to offer a preview to whet your appetite if you don’t already know what Spōk Mobile can do for you. Read about my experience here.
Did you see the story on new contracts?
In case you missed it, last week we sent a Hot Topic about the new contracts for 2018. The PacificSource Medicare Advantage plan will begin enrollment in October. The UnitedHealthcare and Aetna contracts represent 50,000 lives currently attributed to LHP providers. LHP will be responsible for managing the quality and total cost of care for these members.
September 30 deadline for CI education
Completing Clinical Integration Education by September 30 is doubly important this year: 1) It’s a requirement to be eligible for ANY incentive payout, and 2) per a new LHP Board policy, providers must achieve a minimum clinical integration score to maintain membership in LHP. Completing CI education and other provider and practice measures puts this new 50% minimum score threshold within easy reach. For easy-to-follow directions for using E+, see the June 29 Hot Topic.
Is LHP living up to your expectations?
That was the question posed to practice administrators at three meetings in August held at Emanuel, Meridian Park and Salmon Creek. About 20 administrators shared their thoughts about a host of topics, from communications to Clinical Integration Education to the LHP Dashboard. Read a summary of the actions steps we have taken or have planned on the LHP team site.
