As the largest in Kentucky and among the leading accountable care organizations in the United States, CHI Saint Joseph Health Partners is growing rapidly. We recently reached a significant milestone, now managing more than 100,000 lives! Recognized by America’s Physician Groups as a 5 Star “Exemplary” ACO for the second consecutive year, we are working with more than 100 provider groups and nearly 2,000 providers in Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana. Collectively, we’ve raised the quality scores for all of our provider practices.
We are very proud of the results that our clinicians and facilities have achieved thus far. We have ambitious goals for the future and yet never lose sight of our charge to improve the health of Kentuckians. A component of our population health management strategy is to focus on Kentucky. Through this, we impact those health issues most critical in our state.
- Preventive Screenings
- Cardiovascular Diseases and Diabetes
- Patient Adherence to the Care Plan and Physician Compliance with Best Practices
Disease prevention is the cornerstone to the health of Kentuckians. Concentrating on preventative strategies and optimizing care for chronic conditions are equally as important. Preventative strategies include screenings for blood pressure, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes and more. Early detection through health screenings can save lives.
Cardiovascular Diseases and Diabetes
Our focus remains on improving the lives of Kentucky residents with emphasis on chronic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressures, cardiovascular disease/ischemic vascular disease and heart failure. Direct collaboration with Kentuckians who have been diagnosed with a chronic disease is a proven way to help them learn to manage the disease.
Patient Adherence to the Care Plan and Physician Compliance with Best Practices
Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) coupled with a compassionate patient-centered approach generally leads to the best health outcomes for patients. But there are also other factors that affect a patient’s health. One of the most critical factors is patient adherence – whether the patient follows the care plan. We assess patient adherence by monitoring medication compliance and through annual physician office visits. Coupled with our ability to track patients with chronic conditions, this information helps us support patients along a healthier path.
As a clinically integrated network located in a state with major health issues, CHI Saint Joseph Health Partners has focused on these critical health conditions and is making an impact.
