Care Coordination Team Update from Joan Snyder, RN, MS
We’ve been working together for the past few years on making sure
that our patients complete annual screening and other tests, based on
evidence based guidelines – the “gaps in care” that
you review each quarter. We are excited to report that for our Aetna contract,
we achieved a quality score of 82% for 2017, which is our highest score
to date. In addition to the work you did all year, in late December we
asked for your help getting a group of patients in for lab work before
the end of the year – and it clearly paid off! The Alliance also
earned 45.7 out of a possible 50 points for a quality score of 91.4% in
our Medicare program for 2017 (MSSP chart abstraction and reporting done in 2018).
These preventative screenings are important to our patients’ health,
and these results directly reflect the hard work that your team provided
under the Commercial Care Coordination program.
Thanks to all the Alliance practices for your hard work and congrats to
your team for what we were able to achieve!
