2017 CCHN Annual Report


FRIENDS Dear Friends:

I am pleased to be delivering this annual report to the community after another successful year at CompleteCare Health Network. As we make our way into 2017, a year that will be uncertain for healthcare, I want to highlight the value that health centers like CompleteCare offer and the vital role they play across the country, as well as right here at home. In 2016 CompleteCare once again made a significant impact on the health of our community by providing affordable, accessible, high-quality healthcare to 59,391 patients for a total of 247,678 patient visits. Part of our growth was due to our mission of creating additional access for new patients by opening our state-of-theart health campus in Vineland, opening a new and expanded Medical Professionals office in Glassboro, and extending our hours in some locations to create more evening and weekend appointment availability. In addition to providing quality patient care, our expansive programs and services also continued to make a mark in our service area, committing to patients for more than just their medical care. Many will

be outlined throughout our annual report, but a few highlights include: Introducing Reach Out & Read to our pediatric centers; a program stressing the importance of literacy. Creating asthma management classes for kids to learn how to better control their illness. Continuing our work on the Affordable Care Act, helping to enroll almost 10,000 patients into coverage. Expanding our Smile Smart program to kids needing dental care to 28 local schools. I am extremely thankful to all of our staff for their hand in our successes, especially our volunteer board, hardworking executive and management teams, and each and every employee who truly believes in and works towards the CompleteCare mission each and every day. We are fully aware of the potential challenges the year is going to bring, including pending changes to the Affordable Care Act and possibly the way community health centers are funded. But, no matter what direction healthcare takes in the country we know there will be sick and underserved patients in our communities in need of quality, affordable healthcare and CompleteCare will be there to meet their needs. We look forward to your continued support. Sincerely,

J. Curtis Edwards/President & CEO

WHAT’S NEW? Vineland Health Campus, 58,630 Patients Served In 2016, CompleteCare opened the state-of-the-art Vineland Health Campus on Sherman Avenue in Vineland. This flagship facility houses 27 exam rooms, 10 dental chairs, phlebotomy services, and a pharmacy providing one-stop medical shopping for our patients. Services at this location include adult medicine, pediatrics, dental, women’s health, podiatry, counseling services, and more. In one year the site has already seen 25,652 patients for 58,630 visits.

Growing in Gloucester County Expanding access to quality healthcare for more patients is part of CompleteCare’s mission. Since opening their first health center in Gloucester County in 2005 the number of patients coming for care has steadily increased, signaling a need for CompleteCare to grow in the county. In August of 2016, CompleteCare split up its medical and dental services into two locations, giving patients more access to appointments and providers. Medical Professionals, Glassboro is now located in the Collegetown Plaza, just a short ride from its former home. The site has increased capacity with 12 exam rooms, a larger waiting area, and on-site phlebotomy services. The site sees patients for adult medicine, pediatrics, geriatrics, podiatry, counseling services, and more. CompleteCare hopes to expand services at this location later this year. CompleteCare Dental Professionals remains in the same location on Delsea Drive, but has expanded to include more dental chairs, as well as more dental providers, including dentists and hygienists. The site continues to see patients for all of their dental needs from preventive care and cleanings to restorative dentistry.

’s IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY 2016 DENTAL Our dental program is growing fast! The five sites combined had over 61,840 visits in 2016, with a 5% increase in visits with the dentist and a 7% increase in visits with our hygienists.

REACH OUT & READ Incorporating the importance of literacy into our pediatric practice, Reach Out & Read is a new program for CompleteCare. Last year over 1,560 kids between the age of six months and five years received a book at their pediatric wellness visit.

SCHOOL-BASED SERVICES Teaching the importance of good health begins at a young age, that’s why CompleteCare’s five school-based health centers are so important. Last year these sites helped 1,723 students access primary care, dental and mental health services, as well as linked them into programs to support a healthy future, including career planning, tutoring, college prep and more.

COUNSELING SERVICES The need for mental health in our communities continues to grow and so do CompleteCare’s services. Our Counseling Services team had more than 3,675 visits in 2016, a 28% increase from the year before.

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT CompleteCare continues to work to fulfill the mission of the ACA by helping as many people as possible get insurance coverage. In 2016 the team completed 1,450 applications and assisted over 13,700 people. Our Access to Care Counselors also helped 7,336 patients apply for NJFamilyCare eligibility.

SMILE SMART Transporting kids from local schools to the dentist for preventive and restorative services is a big part of CompleteCare’s Community Services team. This incredible program recorded over 1,480 visits in 2016, helping to brighten so many smiles in our community!

OUTREACH & MARKETING CompleteCare’s outreach and marketing teams work hard to highlight CompleteCare’s services to the community. Last year CompleteCare saw over 17,975 new patients due in part to their efforts.

PODIATRY Our patients enjoy a variety of specialty services at CompleteCare, including podiatry. Last year patients had 6,435 visits with a CompleteCare podiatrist.

FARMWORKERS CompleteCare’s roots are in serving the migrant and seasonal farmworker population that is essential to our community. Last year over 7,640 farmworkers were served at CompleteCare health centers for a variety of services.

WOMEN’S HEALTH Healthy moms make healthy babies. CompleteCare’s Women’s Health services in conjunction with their Baby Love program continue to work to lower the infant mortality rate in our service area. Last year our women’s centers had over 15,266 visits, many of those for prenatal services.

Programs that Improve Our Communities CompleteCare Continues to Be Recognized for Performance Improvement In 2016 CompleteCare continued to receive monetary recognition for our Performance Improvement work which is focused on improving quality and outcomes while driving down the cost of care. We received shared savings from United Healthcare as we decreased unnecessary inpatient and emergency department hospital use, ensured timely access to care for both medical and OB patients, and improved care and results through increased coordination and care management offerings. Additionally, HRSA recognized improvements in the metrics they use to measure efficacy by providing a one-time funding increase to support ongoing performance improvement activities and trainings.

Breathe Better Asthma Program In 2016 CompleteCare introduced their Breathe Better Asthma program as a result of a grant from the Horizon Foundation of New Jersey. Staff created a series of classes throughout CompleteCare’s service area for children living with asthma. The course helps kids learn tips for controlling their illness even during high-activity times like allergy and cold and flu season.

Shared Savings CompleteCare Health Network works in partnership with major insurers in the region on Accountable Care and Shared Savings Initiatives designed to promote value based care with  the aim of improving patient health, increasing patient satisfaction, and reducing healthcare expenditures. Our efforts include promoting preventive care and reducing preventable hospitalizations and emergency room visits.

Population Health CompleteCare’s Population Health Department manages and improves the health outcomes of CompleteCare patients with the following chronic diseases:

• Hypertension

• COPD/Asthma

• Diabetes


• Abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels

• Hepatitis C

PCMH Certification CompleteCare is proud to have once again received the Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® for Primary Care Medical Home (PCMH) Accreditation. To earn this distinction, CompleteCare Health Network underwent a rigorous, unannounced onsite survey. During the review, a team of Joint Commission surveyors with expertise in ambulatory health care, evaluated compliance with ambulatory care standards related to a variety of areas, including coordination of care, infection prevention and control, management of medications, and patient education and training.

Patient Assessments CompleteCare has implemented three new surveys to assess patients, hoping to help them get more out of their healthcare visits. Health Literacy, which determines how much a patient understands about healthcare and helps providers and staff cater information based on that knowledge. Learning Needs Assessments which focus on determining a patient’s cultural and religious beliefs, emotional barriers, motivation, physical and cogitative limitations, and works to understand how these things will impact the patient’s health and healthcare. Finally, Self-Management Goals, which ask patients to work with their healthcare provider to set measurable short-term and long-term goals and action plans for their health. When combined these offer the patient a better experience and help them both receive better care and understand their next steps. 

2016 HIGHLIGHTS • Reorganized CompleteCare’s Care Management Team to empanel care managers within our health centers and assign them to specialties that best match their talents.

• Acquired $258,227 in additional Ryan White Funding. • Expanded HIV and Hepatitis C treatment services to our Wildwood Medical & Dental Professionals office.

• Refocused team goals to help meet PI objectives and Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) measures.

• Worked to identify ten new patients with HIV and helped get them into care.

• Acquired the Gilead Focus Grant for Hepatitis C Virus testing and linkage to care.

• Reached a total of 87% of patients with HIV having a suppressed viral load.

Increasing Empanelment Rates for Better Patient Care At CompleteCare we want our patients to get to know their personal care team, including doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical assistants. To help facilitate this we will focus on provider empanelment, working to achieve the goal of having 80 percent of our patients empaneled with their team by the end of 2017. Empanelment is essentially having patients see the same primary care provider and care team each time they visit, helping to: • Build trust between patients and providers • Help providers create more comprehensive care plan for their patients • Give patients a team they can communicate with when needed CompleteCare has created color-coded empanelment teams at each of their locations to make the empanelment process easier to implement and recognize. The hope is that patients will embrace this positive change letting them establish a relationship with their team while working together to achieve their personal healthcare goals.

CompleteCare Focuses on Tech to Improve the Patient Experience

Looking Ahead Kiosks Create Accuracy in the Registration Process

Translation Stations Bring a Much Needed Update to Patient Communication

All of CompleteCare’s health centers took a major step towards creating a more accurate and efficient registration process in 2016. Kiosk computers were installed to check patients in when they arrive for their appointments and also collect insurance information, copays, and update patient records with new information. All machines are secure and offer patients the opportunity to ensure all of their information is correct and up to date in our system.

Twenty-two percent of CompleteCare’s patients report that they speak a language other than English, however an even larger number see better levels of understanding when receiving information in their native language. To help communicate more accurately and effectively with these patients CompleteCare will introduce InDemand translation stations to many of their health centers in 2017. This technology connects patients to a HIPAA protected, live translator in their preferred language who can help increase their understanding of what is happening during their visit by translating for the provider.

New Software Keeps Patients in the Loop Missed appointments are often missed opportunities for both patients and health centers. CompleteCare loses the ability to open access to other patients in need of appointments and scheduled patients miss their much-needed provider visits. To help combat this CompleteCare introduced SolutionReach software in 2016, giving them the ability to communicate more effectively with patients where they spend most of their times – on text and email. The new software lets CompleteCare not only remind a patient about their scheduled appointments, but it also gives them the opportunity to prompt patients about other necessary testing and screenings, such as flu shots, wellness exams, and blood work.

Secure Printing Capabilities Increase Security Security is often something companies worry about in email and online communication, but rarely think of when they print or fax documents from one person to another. In 2017, CompleteCare will introduce secure printing and faxing capabilities to their offices, letting individual users control when and where their documents are printed or faxed with a simple click of their badge. Faxes can also been transmitted without ever touching a piece of paper, reaching the intended recipient on their personal computer instead. The goal of this project is not only to be more environmentally friendly by saving on paper and ink costs, but also to help reduce the risk of personal information being received by the wrong person or department.

In 2015 CompleteCare founded the CompleteCare Family Health Foundation to act as a fundraising entity for CompleteCare Health Network’s many programs and services. This includes things like:

• Smile Smart • Baby Love

• Care Management

• Reach Out and Read

• Migrant Services

In 2016 the company was pleased to host multiple fundraisers including two handbag bingo events, raising more than $37,000. In early 2017 Stephanie Shelton was hired as the foundation’s director and she has plans for multiple events throughout the year. The foundation has set a goal of raising $50,000 for 2017.
