Merit Health is pleased to partner with the National Rural Accountable Care Consortium (NRACC) and Caravan Health to offer our members the opportunity to participate in theTransforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI) funded by CMS. The support, training and resources, that you have learned about during our September webinars, all provided at no costthrough the TCPI program, will allow your practices and clinics to establish the necessary framework and infrastructure for implementing population health, prepare for value-based payment models and lower overall costs, while increase the revenue of your practice.
The goals of the NRACC Practice Transformation Network and Caravan Health are closely aligned with Merit’s approach to offer physician practices varying mechanisms to improve reimbursement methods, enhance care coordination, quality, and efficiency to manage our patients' health throughout the entirety of their care experiences. The objective of this partnership is to leverage the following TCPI education and resources provided through NRACC to implement a population health strategy beginning with your Medicare beneficiaries:
1) LIGHTBEAM HEALTH DATA SOFTWARE: Implement Population Health Tools and Quality Improvement using Lightbeam data analytics software,
2) CARE COORDINATION: Train and mentor Care Coordinators with Clinical Health Coach training (26 hours online)
3) CHRONIC CARE MANAGEMENT: Setup a billable Chronic Care Management (CCM) Program, as well as Transition of Care Management Services (TCM) with direct access to Lightbeam’s 2.0 Care Planning Software and a 24/7 evidence-based Nurse Advice Hotline,
4) PATIENT EXPERIENCE: Improve Patient Satisfaction Scores with tablet computers programmed to receive feedback on patient experience,
5) PATIENT CENTERED MEDICAL HOME: Prepare your practices for Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) through Practice Assessment and Clinical Practice Improvement strategies to better promote population health,
These efforts support Merit’s proactive response to the pressure on our independent providers during an era riddled with evolving value-based reimbursement methodologies, provider and payer consolidation, and relentless regulatory uncertainty; not only to survive, but to thrive!
