MinuteClinic and Lifespan Agree to Clinical Collaboration in Rhode Island

MinuteClinic and Lifespan announced that they have entered into a clinical collaboration agreement. The affiliation will enhance access to high quality, affordable health care services at MinuteClinic walk-in medical clinics opening inside select CVS/pharmacy stores in Rhode Island beginning later this week. The new Rhode Island clinics, opening this fall and in 2015, will be located in Cranston, East Greenwich, North Smithfield, Providence, Wakefield, Westerly and Woonsocket. The collaboration encourages interaction between Lifespan and MinuteClinic providers to improve coordination and access to care for patients seen at MinuteClinic locations. Toward that end, both organizations will integrate their electronic medical records to further promote exchange of clinical information, with patients' permission. For those patients who do not have regular access to primary care, MinuteClinic provides assistance in finding a primary care physician. MinuteClinic locations in Rhode Island will be open seven days a week, offering weekday evening hours with no appointment necessary and most health insurance accepted. The clinics will be staffed by nurse practitioners and physician assistants who provide treatment for common family illnesses and administer wellness and prevention services, including health-condition monitoring for patients with chronic diseases. Both MinuteClinic and Lifespan will eventually use the Epic electronic medical record to streamline communication around all aspects of each patient's care. MinuteClinic will electronically share medical histories and visit summaries with the patient's primary care provider at Lifespan. MinuteClinic will also send patient visit summaries to primary care providers who are not affiliated with Lifespan via fax or mail with the patient's consent. MinuteClinic will also participate in Current Care, the state's health information exchange.

Lifespan and Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island Collaborate on State’s Accountable Care Model to Improve Patient Care and Reduce Costs

Lifespan and Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) have announced an innovative collaboration that will transform the way health care is delivered to over 35,000 patients and includes more than 110 primary care providers. The three-year program is the large risk-sharing agreement in Rhode Island, and includes Medicare Advantage and commercially insured patients. This initiative is the first step in moving away from the traditional fee-for-service model and demonstrates how health systems, insurers and providers are finding new ways to work together to better coordinate care, improve quality and contain health care costs. Throughout the partnership, BCBSRI and Lifespan will jointly invest in programs that support care transformation by coordinating all aspects of a patient’s care – from office visits to hospitalizations. In addition, the new payment model will reward physicians for meeting quality performance and outcome goals. The three-year agreement will affect 35,000 commercially insured and Medicare patients. It will involve more than 110 physicians; 40% of the physicians are affiliated with patient-centered medical homes and 35% are Lifespan physicians.
