Valley Integrated Provider Network
Located in Bakersfield, Calif., Valley Integrated Provider Network (VIPN) has experienced significant growth, adding new providers and ramping up their care coordination efforts. In 2018, VIPN added four additional members to the Board of Managers, five additional members to the Payer Committee, and three additional members to the Quality Committee and continues to obtain new employer relationships. The network is well-positioned for its MSSP application in 2019.
In 2017, enrollment in Care Coordination was primarily based on multiple ER visits/admits, multiple co-morbidities and noncompliance with treatment. This work set the stage for more robust reporting in 2018. As a result, VIPN will be able to leverage the athena platform to identify high-risk patients and to enhance disease management in 2019 and beyond.
