Cat 3 Data and Other opportunities

Dear RHP 6 Performing Providers,

 April reporting is quickly approaching. Remember that if you plan to report achievement of a milestone in April, it must be completed by March 31, 2016. Roughly 30 projects will be reporting Cat 3 measures again. Unlike DY4 where you earned half your incentive for reporting, in most cases the entire Cat 3 incentive for DY5 is tied to achievement (partial payment and carry forward are still available).  Our Cat 3 results for DY4 are shown below. Congrats to all who fully achieved their goals. Did you hit your target? Are you making progress toward your DY 5 target? Last Sept/Oct we held Cat 3 Learning Collaborative webinars on selected domains so participants could share challenges, lessons learned, and ask questions. If you are interested in participating in another round of these, please let me know of which domain(s) you are interested and I will schedule them.

 Invitation to Participate

Mental Health America of Greater Houston (MHA Houston) is coordinating a collaborative systems-change initiative focused on integrated health care (IHC) – specifically, on financing IHC and preparing medical and behavioral health providers for IHC.  The initiative brings together stakeholders to seek system-level solutions in these two areas to help advance IHC in Texas.  Currently, work on the initiative is focused on information-gathering regarding the current state of financing and provider preparation for IHC in Texas, as well as on promising practices throughout the country.  Later this year, stakeholders participating in the initiative will use this information to develop consensus recommendations for advocacy at various levels, from legislative to institutional.

 As part of the initiative’s information-gathering and research process, MHA Houston has developed a survey to collect input from stakeholders throughout the state.  They’d like to have responses to the survey by the end of the month, though they will continue to accept responses afterwards. If you feel comfortable, could you please share the survey links below with your Region? Feel free to use the brief description above for reference, or simply forward this along. Thank you in advance!

Learn how the Primary Care Innovation Center (PCIC) in Houston/Harris County decreased utilization and costs while improving quality of life for super-utilizers of EMS systems. This presentation covers:

(a) Our clients
(b) Our intervention
(c) Outcomes
(d) Data & dashboards
(e) Collaborations

The PCIC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve quality and reduce cost through coordination of care for “super-utilizers”, the most costly and vulnerable in our health care system. PCIC has built collaborative partnerships with the City of Houston, Fire and Police Depts., Harris Health System, Harris County hospital district, MHMRA, several insurers, & other non-profits to gather data, develop analytics, and implement interventions across systems. Through data sharing, we successfully developed an overlap analysis heat map of Harris County depicting multiple site use for super utilizers throughout the healthcare system. The PCIC is working with Medicaid MCOs on effective super-utilizer payment models.
