Twenty-five years ago, Regional HealthPlus was founded primarily to help physicians negotiate contracts with insurance companies. Today, it’s so much more.
The healthcare landscape is changing. Data collection and sharing, regular training and standardized and streamlined coding are essential to surviving and thriving in light of these changes. And Regional HealthPlus has worked tirelessly to ease that burden.
As a leader for value-driven healthcare, Regional HealthPlus has sought to be a steady hand in this ever-changing environment – an innovative and transformative force that enables and assists our physicians in caring for their patients in the most efficient and effective ways, and does so in a way that aligns patient care with provider payments.
Our goal has been to make the transition to value-driven healthcare as seamless as possible by engaging both patients and physicians. Our staff of dedicated professionals do their jobs so well that at times it becomes invisible – operationalizing quality improvement measures that result in healthier patients and an even more efficient healthcare environment.
With so many things competing for our providers’ precious time, the work Regional HealthPlus does behind the scenes so that physicians can maximize the time they spend with their patients and deliver the best care that’s in line payers’ performance-driven indicators strengthens our regional healthcare system and the populations we serve.
With more than 1,200 providers in our network, we have built a solid foundation, and look forward to a bright future.
Regional HealthPlus is a physician-hospital organization established 25 years ago.
As a leader in value-based healthcare, Regional HealthPlus has sought to be a steady hand in an ever-changing environment – an innovative and transformative force that enables and assists our physicians in caring for their patients in the most efficient and effective ways.
Our goal has been to make the transition to value-driven healthcare as seamless as possible. Our team of dedicated professionals works to engage both providers and patients to close care gaps, improve quality of life, and quantify the results.
We provide services in three areas – physicians, patients and businesses. The three go hand in hand.
Regional HealthPlus works aggressively on quality improvement initiatives through targeted physician engagement, office staff training and mid-level provider training. Many of our efforts focus on removing obstacles to improve provider workflow and targeting specific performance indicators for improvement. The RHP Engagement and Performance Team regularly conducts site visits to member physician offices. We have established a performance incentive pool to encourage physician improvement. And we have an online education platform, RHP Insight, which added 15 new training courses just last year.
When it comes to patients, our focus is on whole-person support, not just clinical support, which helps patients to better manage chronic conditions and strive toward a healthier lifestyle. Our CarePlus Care Coordination Team makes calls on behalf of physicians to get a more thorough account of a patient’s health profile, taking into account any existing conditions and social determinants that may affect their health.
Our goal is to see partner businesses rewarded for safe, effective and innovative care. Our heightened focus on personal health and wellness helps realize this, as it positions the patient in the best way before, during and after their visits.
With so many things competing for our providers’ precious time, the work Regional HealthPlus does is largely behind the scenes so that physicians can maximize the time they spend with their patients and deliver the best care that’s in line payers’ performance-driven indicators. This strengthens our regional healthcare system and the populations we serve.
As a founder and 20-year chairman, I’ve been fortunate to watch Regional HealthPlus succeed where others have failed. A patient who is more engaged with their care team is healthier and happier. As our staff builds relationships with patients, we see them start to take initiative for improving their own health. And witnessing that improvement is simply wonderful.
As an original member, I have been privileged to witness Regional HealthPlus shower value on the doctors, on the nurses, and on the healthcare system our organization serves. To be sure, the lives of us physicians have been made easier by RHP’s educational and quality improvement initiatives and by our recent Performance Incentive Pool. ‘Rewarding’ is the best word to describe the physician relationship with Regional HealthPlus.
Regional HealthPlus really upped its game this past year with physician engagement, adding a bevy of new educational modules through RHP Insight and video blogs about timely topics via RHP Connect. We are particularly proud of the success garnered in the Get2Goal quality improvement initiative that played a part in us exceeding state and national quality benchmarks with our largest managed population— a first-time accomplishment for us. Initiatives like this pave the way for a bright future as we meet the challenges of population health management.
