Physician Partners



Dear Colleagues, In June of 2012, I was honored to become a part of the Vision Team for the Clinically Integrated Network (CIN) here at Baptist. Many lively discussions and salutary debates have taken place since that time as we have assiduously sought to develop an infrastructure that would allow the entity now known as Baptist Physician Partners (BPP) to contend in a healthcare world destined to no longer compete on the basis of volume but on value.

Timothy Groover, MD, MBA, CPE Chair, Board of Managers

I am excited to share some recent updates and accomplishments that further advance our goal of improving quality and the continuity of care through a clinically integrated network.

During our January Steering Committee Meeting, Baptist Health CEO Hugh Greene and I had the opportunity to execute the Operating Agreement for Baptist Physician Partners, LLC. This signaled the transition in governance to the official Board of Managers of our physician-led CIN. We plan to hit the ground running and diligently work to reach our key milestones in the coming years. On January 1, 2014, BPP launched the Outpatient Quality & Efficiency Program, a phase I initiative which focuses on enhancing quality of care for Baptist employee health plan beneficiaries. To date, we have 129 Baptist Primary Care physicians enrolled in the network and participating in this program. To learn more, please refer to Dr. Fulton’s article inside. As we move ahead, our focus will be on developing an infrastructure to facilitate better coordinated care, improved outcomes and greater efficiency. This combined effort between Baptist Physician Partners and the health system will help prepare us for potential future changes in the marketplace. To learn more, please refer to Drs. Snowden & Fulton’s articles inside. I say thank you to the 40-plus physicians who were directly involved and offered support, feedback, and valuable time as we assessed the clinical integration strategy. It is because of you that we now have a roadmap to successfully position ourselves as the market shifts to total cost-of-care models. We will continue to deliver outstanding care with improved outcomes to the patients we serve, as we work collaboratively with independent as well as employed physicians and Baptist Health. At no other point in our history have our futures been more inextricably woven together than it will be as we shift from volume to value-based payment systems. No question, we will be challenged but we will have a shared success.


This truly is a physician-led endeavor and I must insist upon your feedback and input. These are exciting times in our history and I look forward to working with you as the Chair of the BPP Board of Managers in the coming year!

Introducing the clinical integration governance structure By David Rice, MD Chief Medical Officer, Baptist Physician Partners

Clinical integration (CI) can be defined as a network of entities that collaborate to improve patient care, decrease costs and demonstrate value to the market. Baptist Physician Partners (BPP), a notfor-profit subsidiary of Baptist Health, is a Clinically Integrated Network between the employed and independent physicians and Baptist Health. One of the overarching vision elements of this network, as determined by the physician-led visioning team, was to develop a physician-driven network with strong citizenship

and leadership representation from multiple specialties. Six physician-led committees have been established to drive strategy and effect change. I would like to take this opportunity to thank those physicians who have been involved, collaboratively working for more than 18 months to advance the mission and vision of BPP. Our greatest asset is our physicians and we appreciate your commitment and support. Below please find an overview of the governance structure and responsibilities. Please don’t hesitate to contact me at 904-202-3354 or if you have any questions, or are interested in learning more.

Strong IT foundation critical to Baptist Physician Partners’ success


For the foreseeable future, the new CIN-IT will perform alongside existing inpatient and office EMR platforms. Given that arrangement, it is unlikely that this will require significant hardware changes for most offices currently employing an EMR who join the CIN.

By Todd Snowden, MD Chair, Information Technology Committee

In order to improve the quality of health care delivery in our Clinically Integrated Network (CIN), we will need a reliable, comprehensive IT platform capable of coordinating care delivery across multiple care settings and various groups of patients. This capability will revolve upon monitoring multiple patient registries. For those unfamiliar with the term, a registry is a data set containing patients sharing one or more designated characteristics, such as diabetes or colon cancer. From these registries, data will be automatically extracted, allowing the IT system to track patients and their compliance with specific guidelines. It will also allow the system to track larger populations of patients and therefore measure outcomes for specific interventions.


Analytic features will be a critical component of the CIN-IT platform. We will be able to monitor costs and utilization, looking at categories including readmissions, prescriptions, imaging studies, and lab testing. Predictive modeling strategies will be used to identify higher-risk and higher-cost groups. In this way, we can identify opportunities for greater health care quality and efficiency, and eventually demonstrate value for purposes of managed care contracting.



As of February 2014

Nominating Committee

Identifies and nominates physician candidates for election to the Board of Managers, and develops and oversees election activities for committees and other leadership positions.

Executive Committee

Oversees day-to-day business, providing efficiency, flexibility and decidedness in management and oversight of the implementation of the Board of Managers’ decisions.

One of the challenges facing the IT Committee is to reconcile the needs of the CIN with the realities of the existing technology. From the outset, we acknowledged certain realities: first, contrary to the true data synchronization suggested by the name “Clinical Integration,” existing technology does not yet support the type of idealized super-EMR most of us would like to see. It may be years before the industry supports a truly unified, seamless data repository encompassing all points of inpatient, outpatient, and ancillary care. Selecting our IT solution: Baptist Physician Partners is among the vanguard of health systems currently evaluating CIN-IT solutions for improving health care delivery. After a lengthy evaluation process, BPP’s IT Committee has winnowed the list to the two most promising CIN-IT vendors. We have completed two site visits to observe how each of these IT platforms has been implemented by other CINs. A final note: It is understandable, particularly among current EMR users, that the arrival of additional IT is greeted with skepticism if not outright suspicion. Medicine is challenging enough without the clerical responsibilities of electronic record keeping. As a physician-led group, the IT Committee intends for this technology, as much as possible, to respect the existing workflow of our clinicians. No CIN can be successful without the full participation of its members. Our primary focus should and always will be taking care of patients.


Making strides in performance improvements By Jennifer Fulton, MD Vice-Chair, Baptist Physician Partners & Chair, Performance Improvement Committee It is with great enthusiasm that I share an update of the Performance Improvement Committee’s efforts as well as some highlights regarding our first program and future plans. The Outpatient Quality and Efficiency Program (OQEP) is designed to “prime the pump” for more sophisticated quality programs in subsequent years. This pilot program for primary care physicians focuses on the quality monitoring of outpatient metrics related to chronic disease management and preventative care. Listed below are the current metrics employed in the OQEP. The year 1 patient population only focuses on those enrolled in the employee health plan for Baptist Health. • Control of high blood pressure • Comprehensive adult diabetes care

important to evaluate the tracking feasibility of the proposed metrics and ability of physicians to impact results. A special thank you to Mark Stich, DO, a fellow BPP Board Member and family practice physician, for leading his primary care colleagues in the selection of these year 1 metrics. Our next area of focus is on the development of an ambulatory care coordination program. We will be forming a physicianled workgroup, as a subset of the Performance Improvement Committee, to champion these efforts. This is fundamental to developing a successful CIN and will better position us for the future. The workgroup will be tasked with developing our definition of “care management/coordination” and establishing specific, actionable and measurable objectives for the program. We look forward to hiring an experienced care coordination clinical leader to oversee the implementation. We anticipate piloting this program in a few primary care offices no later than January 2015. We look forward to updating you on the implementation and success of this program in future newsletters. It is our goal to develop a model that allows for less fragmented care and improved quality and efficiency for the patient population we serve.

• Use of appropriate medications for people with asthma • Hospital follow-up visits • Generic medication usage • Pediatric immunization schedule When we set out to define the proposed metrics for this program, it was important to identify items that would be meaningful for all participants. We reviewed current performance indicators, evidence-based guidelines and worked with key stakeholders and physician leaders to select metrics that put the patient first, focused on quality, and aligned the goals of the patients, medical staff and health system. It was

As we embark on our future initiatives, focused on improving quality and impacting total cost of care, we need your input to successfully define the specialty-specific metrics. In addition to utilizing evidence-based guidelines, these metrics should be created by the physicians within those specialties. I look forward to further dialogue and working closely with you and your colleagues to select the metrics appropriate for your respective specialty.

Identifying market readiness By Michael Erhard, MD Chair, Finance and Contracting Committee

Baptist Physician Partners has developed a vision and long-term strategy to successfully allow the independent and employed physicians and Baptist Health to improve the quality and connectivity of care through a clinically integrated network. As the chair of the Finance & Contracting Committee, it is our committee’s responsibility to evaluate our market’s development of CI payment models, identify available contracting options to fund network development and develop a distribution methodology to support network objectives. As we developed our framework and contracting strategy, our committee learned from other CI programs throughout the country. In an effort to strategically and systematically advance on a successful CI journey, it was determined that the earlier initiatives would serve as “pilot” projects to measure the impact BPP’s efforts would have on enhanced quality, improved efficiency and cost reduction.

Additionally, a shift in thinking is necessary — from episodic care to population health management, through care coordination, enhanced communication and more robust data systems infrastructure. Baptist Physician Partners is preparing for evolving payment methodologies that increase provider accountability. Markets across the country are already demanding higher accountability from its physicians, hospitals and other providers. Our Committee will continue to monitor our market to be ready to respond to similar changes when needed. In the meantime, fee-for-service payments will continue to be paid directly to physicians and hospitals the same way they are today. We need to be ready for opportunities in this market for shared saving. Of course, effective coordination of care and the resulting improvement in quality are essential to our readiness. In closing, as we move forward, our focus remains clear. Please find our strategy outlined below.

BPP Strategy

Build infrastructure & alignment: INFRASTRUCTURE: 1) Develop ambulatory care coordination model with employed & independent physicians


2) Deploy IT solution for population health management ALIGNMENT: 1) Involve specialists in design & development of metrics, model, etc. 2) Involve post-acute providers

CDC Update on Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus

Date: May 8, 2014 As you are aware, last week the first case of imported Middle East Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus (MERS-CoV) was reported by a hospital in the state of Indiana. The patient recently traveled from Saudi Arabia, where MERS outbreaks are occurring. He is now isolated and is in stable condition. The MERS-CoV virus is known to cause severe respiratory illness and death; it spreads during close contact. In order for our Medical Staff to recognize and manage any suspected cases of MERS-CoV should they present at a Baptist Health facility, we are providing the following CDC guidelines. MERS-CoV: What to Look for If a patient exhibits the following traits, it is important to get a good travel history up front. • Fever (≥38°C, 100.4°F) and pneumonia or acute respiratory distress syndrome (based on clinical or radiological evidence) AND EITHER • History of travel from countries in or near the Arabian Peninsula1 within 14 days before symptom onset OR • Close contact with a symptomatic traveler who developed fever and acute respiratory illness (not necessarily pneumonia) within 14 days after traveling from countries in or near the Arabian Peninsula OR • Is a member of a cluster of patients with severe acute respiratory illness (e.g. fever and pneumonia requiring hospitalization) of unknown etiology in which MERSCoV is being evaluated, in consultation with state and local health departments. As soon as you suspect MERS-CoV—even before you do the testing—make sure you have that patient on isolation precautions. For full details of these precautions, see 2007 Guideline for Isolation Precautions: Should Baptist have a Patient Under Investigation for MERS-CoV, we would contact the health department and collect appropriate specimens. For more details, go to: We will continue to participate in Health Department calls and keep you apprised of significant updates. In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions.

Anterior Hip Replacement Technique Has Patients Walking — and Talking Causes of Hip Pain Hip pain is a common problem, and can cause discomfort and difficulty in walking, sitting, activities of daily living, working and playing sports. Sometimes diseases that affect other joints in the body, such as arthritis, can be the cause of pain in the hip. Because there are so many causes that may result in hip pain, it can be confusing. It is important for you to see a physician who will make an accurate diagnosis.

Anterior Hip Surgery One innovative option available is Anterior Hip Surgery. Some of the benefits include: • Smaller incisions • Greater precision and safety • Quicker recovery and shorter hospital stays • Less pain • Return to normal activities sooner

Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute surgeons Dale Whitaker, MD (left), and John Von Thron, MD.

Some signs that you should see a doctor include: • Inability to walk comfortably on the affected side • Injury that causes deformity around the joint • Hip pain that occurs at night or while resting • Hip pain that persists beyond a few days • Inability to bend the hip • Swelling of the hip or the thigh area • Signs of an infection, including fever, redness, warmth The physicians at Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute are well experienced in diagnosing and treating your hip pain, whether you need a course of physical therapy or surgery.

If you’re struggling with hip pain, consider these questions before you meet with a doctor: • Are you forced to limit your activities because of your hip? • Do you have more bad days than good days? • Can your symptoms be controlled with medications?

New Option for Knee Patients Baptist Health and Jacksonville Orthopaedic Institute present the new minimally-invasive surgical procedure, Robot-Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing, called MAKOplasty. Using a highly-advanced robotic arm system, we are now able to more precisely replace only the diseased part of the knee with a small implant, leaving healthy bone, tissue and cartilage intact. JOI surgeons have performed more of these surgical procedures than any other provider in the region.

Positive post-surgery results On all key measures of post-surgery success, results for the partial knee resurfacing procedure exceeded outcomes for total knee replacements and beat target goals.
