  • HealthPlus of Michigan is an independent, not-for-profit company that offers health care coverage services in mid and southeast Michigan. It offers commercial, Medicaid, and Medicare Advantage HMO, commercial PPO, and Third Party Administrator (TPA) services to over 200,000 members. The majority of members (approximately 140,000) are served through one of HealthPlus&apos; HMO products. The HMO products are based on a model in which most care is directed by a primary care physician (PCP). As of March 2008, HealthPlus had approximately 72,000 commercial HMO members and contracts with over 900 PCPs in the state of Michigan. HealthPlus&apos; Medicare Advantage and Medicaid HMO physician networks are primarily subsets within the commercial HMO group, limited mostly by the smaller geography for those products and a lower rate of PCP participation. All commercial HMO PCPs are part of HealthPlus&apos; PPO preferred physician network. All three HMO products have been recognized by NCQA as &amp;quot;Excellent&amp;quot; in each of the last 10 years. HealthPlus generally contracts with PCPs through physician group organizations, such as Physician-Hospital Organizations (PHOs), Physician Organizations (POs), and Independent Physician Associations (IPAs). Currently, HealthPlus also contracts with approximately 40 PCPs outside of these physician organization structures for its HMO commercial product only.
  • Fielding Patient Experience Survey(s): HealthPlus has fielded the CAHPS C-G survey to evaluate care provided by primary care providers (PCPs) to its commercial HMO members for the past three years (2005, 2006, and 2007), and plans to continue doing so. HealthPlus administers the adult C-G CAHPS survey once per year (each fall). Since 2005, HealthPlus has also fielded 16 additional QI items (developed with RAND during CAHPS2 and fielded in the initial survey in the fall of 2005). The QI items were designed to identify specific actions that are associated with physician-patient interaction and information exchange during the visit. In the fall of 2006, 5-6 more QI questions were inserted into the survey. HealthPlus administered the pediatric ACES (Ambulatory Care Experience Survey) survey from Tufts New England Medical Center in 2005 and 2006 to the parents/guardians of pediatric patients, in keeping with the same survey fielding cycle as the CAHPS C-G surveys (ie, fall). In 2007, HealthPlus shifted completely to the new CAHPS C-G Child survey instrument. Reporting Patient Experience Data: HealthPlus has reported data to individual physicians once per year (each spring/early fall) starting in 2006. Reports are distributed to physicians in hard-copy format via regular mail. The template of these individual physician feedback reports was developed with RAND during CAHPS2, and has undergone some minor revisions in subsequent reporting cycles based on experience/feedback received. HealthPlus has not yet reported data to physicians from the CAHPS C-G Child survey, pending the resolution of analytic, formatting, and survey-transition issues (i.e., trying to retain continuity during transition from ACES to CAHPS survey). Since December 2007, HealthPlus has reported CAHPS C-G data to consumers at the individual physician level on its website which is available to the public. Individual, group, and PHO-level data are also reported to and reviewed by HealthPlus staff and Senior Management on a regular, on-going basis.
  • HealthPlus is currently engaged in 7 interventions primarily intended to improve physician-patient and office staff-patient communication. For physicians in this demonstration, HealthPlus is focused on PCPs. Some individual interventions also have other improvement goals, such as improved efficiency, and consumer empowerment for healthcare decision-making, but improved communication is the central goal of all interventions. A description of each intervention is provided below. Interventions were not launched simultaneously; therefore an unique start date is listed in parentheses after each one. 1. Medfusion: A computer software intervention that supports communication with patients through a secure web portal. HealthPlus is sponsoring a 6-month pilot program with 10 volunteer PCP practices affiliated with several, different PHOs. It will likely be followed by another 6-month pilot with 5 more PCP practices. Pilots start times will be staggered to accommodate individual practices. (First pilot launch Spring 2008) 2. Physician-Level Pay-for-Performance: HealthPlus’ P4P program was launched in February 2006. The first payout was made in Fall 2007 (lump sum based on 2 yr rolling averages, 2005-06). 2008 is the first year that payment will be made based on CAHPS scores. In 2008, there are 4 parts to the P4P program: a) clinical, b) patient experience (CAHPS), c) access, d) IT (electronic prescribing this year; Medfusion might qualify in subsequent years). CAHPS counts for 20%. (First payout Fall 2007) 3. Transparency: HealthPlus posts adult CAHPS C-G scores at the individual physician level on a public website. It is in the process of re-designing this website (re-launch scheduled for Spring 2008). This intervention is intended to provide consumers with information for decision-making, and also to encourage physicians to want to improve their scores. This intervention will be dynamic, with new information posted to the website periodically, and data refreshed to keep it as current as possible. (Individual physician scores first posted December 2007). 4. Physician training: In-person workshops facilitated by outside experts will be offered to a sub-set of PCPs. (Not yet started; still in planning phase at this time.) 5. Learning Networks: Telephone learning networks will be offered to physicians and their office staff in between the in-person training sessions, facilitated by outside experts. (Not yet started; still in planning phase at this time.) 6. Educational materials/performance reports for physicians: This intervention includes individual feedback reports as well as other educational materials for physicians. In CAHPS 2, RAND and HealthPlus co-designed a template to share CAHPS C-G survey data with individual physicians. This template has been used for two years (2006 and 2007). Along with the report, HealthPlus has sent a summary of interviews RAND conducted with high performing physicians in CAHPS2; this document also outlines best practices as determined in the literature. HealthPlus will continue to design other educational materials to share with physicians. (First report 2006). 7. Patient Education: Quarterly newsletters have been sent to HealthPlus members for many years. As part of the intervention focused on communication, HealthPlus has been promoting the “AskMe3” questions in recent newsletters, and it recently released its “Cost/Quality Booklet” (Feb 2008) which encourages consumers to approach health care choices much as it does other decisions (e.g. planning a trip, buying a car), and provides guidance for doing so. HealthPlus will continue to develop resources for consumers. (On-going; started prior to CAHPS3).
  • UCLA Faculty Practice Group (FPG) Basics: Authorized in 2005 to support physician faculty members, especially in clinical service delivery, the UCLA Faculty Practice Group (FPG) is a provider organization whose members participate in the various Departmental compensation plans of the UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine. FPG faculty and UCLA Medical Group affiliates provide clinical services in multiple hospitals and more than 70 ambulatory clinic settings in the UCLA Health System. The FPG and the UCLA Hospitals (The Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital, the Lynda, the Stewart Resnick Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, and the Santa Monica UCLA Orthopedic Hospital) together make up the UCLA Health System. The FPG provides financial, technical, quality, and support services to its physician members, including approximately 1,200 clinical faculty and approximately 200 clinical affiliates. On behalf of the clinical faculty, the FPG negotiates contracts with payors for professional services, provides complete billing services for professional fees (inpatient and outpatient), supports human resources and health information technology functions, collects and shares performance and quality information with members, provides training and quality-improvement support, and a host of other services. As of June 2008, the FPG contracts with approximately 50 unique health plans. The UCLA Medical Group is the contracting entity for the UCLA FPG. This includes HMO, PPO, and other types of service contracts. The FPG is the organizational home for the UCLA Medical Group and its activities. UCLA Medical Group activities in support of its HMO contracts include utilization review, quality management, credentialing, and affiliate contracting. UCLA Medical Group currently has approximately 50,000 members. In all, the FPG serves about 220,000 unique patients annually. UCLA FPG physicians provide clinical care – primary, secondary and tertiary care – in a complete array of primary and specialty care services that are organized in the following Departments within UCLA’s School of Medicine: Anesthesia Family Medicine Medicine Neurology Obstetrics and Gynecology Oncology Ophthalmology Orthopedics Pathology Pediatrics Psychiatry Radiation Oncology Radiology Surgery Urology In addition, the UCLA FPG is the Departmental home for a community primary care network called the Community Physician Network (CPN), whose physician providers include both UCLA Faculty and Clinical Affiliates.
  • The PCHI network is organized into Regional Service Organizations (RSOs). In each RSO the physicians coordinate medical care for their patients, share in financial risk or performance incentives in managed care contracts, and provide representation to PCHI&apos;s decision-making bodies. The RSOs vary greatly in size and structure, ranging from a small RSO of 14 physicians in group practice to a physician organization with more than 250 primary care physicians working in an academic medical center.
