Transitioning into risk while expanding opportunities

As LHP enters our sixth year, we are refining our contracting strategy to focus on our goals to grow covered lives, and to financially maximize relationships with payor partners. The next steps in our evolution will bring our clinically integrated network into more risk-based arrangements, and we are carefully considering how best to make the transition.

The network has not met regional and national benchmarks on some diabetes measures during the past few years. LHP will launch a multi-prong approach to help you with care coordination and clinical outcome improvement for diabetic patients this year.
