Expand therapeutic capacity within the PCP offices to improve access and decrease cost for patients
A core outcome of WCHHA is to improve access to all pediatric providers. To achieve this goal, we strive for the following:
- Expansion of psychological and mental health services
- Next day subspecialist referrals per best practice protocol
- Telehealth for appropriate specialty consultations
- Develop chronic disease management to facilitate appropriate utilization of service to manage costs
Improve quality by measuring outcomes across a population and coordinating physician behaviors to improve clinical outcomes
By aggregating data from disparate EMRs, WCHHA has the ability to implement care protocols to direct care to high quality, low cost providers; saving money for patients, insurance companies, and employers.
Establish evidence based standardized care protocols for pediatrics
Every practice that has joined WCHHA has at least one person on the Quality committee. The committee meets regularly to establish best practice guidelines and implement care protocols designed to improve care.
Reduce cost by eliminating duplication of services
By measuring and monitoring care delivery in real time through a care management platform, we can help practices deliver care to avoid duplication of services.
Reduce costs by utilizing condition-appropriate site of care
Through effective care protocol development, WCHHA can help practices and patients direct care to the most appropriate site of care.
Engagement with independent practices
WCHHA has care managers tasked with engaging with each practice to support them with the care management services that they need to transition to value based arrangements.
The WCHHA has helped me collaborate with other like minded individual physician practices in my area – a chance I rarely had before”. The opportunity to work together has been extremely rewarding.
Joining WCHHA has allowed me to think about population health in a whole different manner. Without WCHHA, I would never have had the chance to review data in the way that we can in WCHHA.
The data that WCHHA can pull from my EMR is remarkable. The dashboard is terrific and really helps synthesize data into a meaningful dashboard.
