Alison Chavez is one of our lead field support specialists dedicated to Osler practices.
Alison, a highly experienced and trained care coordinator, will be visiting practices and working closely with care coordinators and population health staff members to help them identify and implement process and workflow improvement opportunities.
Her job is to bring her expertise to you and to support you. She will work hard to ensure that you are equipped, enabled, empowered, trained and supported to succeed to the best of our ability. Many of you may already know Alison, who comes from one of our own, Heights Medical. She has shared her expertise in using clinical analytics to optimize care coordination, population health and transitional care management in our peer to peer meetings.
Osler Health is making this investment to maximize shared savings under the new, empirical shared savings determination methodology Osler has negotiated with Horizon BCBS to start on January 1, 2017. The new methodology replaces the old, flawed system of using comparison groups, and increases Osler’s shared savings portion by 50%.
For this new program to be sustainable, we must effectively eliminate waste, efficiently provide high quality, and, most importantly, identify and manage chronic disease, which represents 76% of our non-Medicare costs and over 95% of our Medicare cost.
Osler’s investment in field support aims to maximize the value delivered to our practices, as well as to better equip and enable you to succeed in value based care, generating its maximum benefit to all. This means that you will be seeing an Osler support person about once per week, and more often as necessary. It also means that, in addition to enhanced support and training, you will have additional resources including state of the industry blended clinical and claims analytics as Osler deploys the Optum analytic system.
If you have immediate needs, questions or would like to schedule a meeting. Alison’s direct line is 201-426-6526 x 710 and email, firstname.lastname@example.org
