Letter from the President

March Madness has begun and I am not talking about basketball! This month is one of the most significant and exciting months for activity in IHP. The claims run-out period ends this month, and we’ll soon know our results for 2014. We are also finalizing our first commercial contract, and our affiliate strategy is moving forward.

IHP Leadership has been active in aligning with providers in Duncan and Enid. IHP - Enid and Duncan Health Partners (DHP) have both completed their first year. Through better physician engagement and improved plan design, they both have been successful in decreasing their costs of care and improving their quality metrics for their respective employee groups. This represents that our proof of concept in regional outreach has produced value and works. Over the last few months, we have been engaging with the doctors and administrators in a number of other regional hospitals in our market area. Our purpose is to introduce the concept of clinical integration and to assist them in forming local clinically integrated networks. The IHP story is a compelling and innovative narrative and has shown these area hospitals that clinical integration can be successful. It’s very satisfying to see other groups respond favorably to our message of improving quality and decreasing cost through better clinical outcomes. As we continue to tell our IHP story and the results we have achieved, other groups and systems are interested in how they can explore and participate in clinical integration and population health management. It is very encouraging to see the enthusiasm of others as they learn about our model and the success we have achieved.

IHP is an innovator and market leader. Due to all of the hard work of our Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Nurses, Care Coordinators, and administrative staff, we are making IHP into a very successful and marketable network. I want to thank you personally for your engagement in this process and your dedication to deliver high quality and cost efficient care. Also, I want to thank INTEGRIS Health for their support, both financially and administratively. Their vision to support this endeavor has been instrumental to our success.

So as March madness calms down, it is time to be clear in our vision for IHP. We know where to attack the issues that affect the delivery of healthcare in our market.  We must always keep the focus of our mission on the patient. We must be their advocates in this rapidly changing healthcare environment. They are even more anxious and uncomfortable about change in healthcare delivery then we are. Just ask them – there are many forces driving change in what we do. Continue to pay attention, participate, and be a patient advocate and we will succeed.

Sincerely,

Carl Raczkowski, M.D.
President, INTEGRIS Health Partners

Pharmacy Task Force Recommendations       

Lyrica - The task force recommends gabapentin instead of Lyrica. The task force is aware that not all patients will find gabapentin to be equally efficacious or tolerable, but many will. Gabapentin is not a controlled drug – Lyrica is. The dosage range is quite wide from 100 mg twice daily to 1200 mg three times daily. At higher dosages, doubling the dose does not double the effect. 
       

Celebrex - The task force recommends etodolac or meloxicam instead of Celebrex. Both etodolac and meloxicam have COX-1 and COX-2 inhibition activity, but are more selective for COX-2 in modest therapeutic doses. This is a possible advantage over ibuprofen and naproxen without the cost of Celebrex.
    

Androgel - Please see the following Word document from Dr. John Muchmore: Testosterone Therapy in Men.

Nexium - The task force recommends Omeprazole instead of Nexium. 

Pristiq ER - The task force recommends venlafaxine HCL ER instead of Pristiq ER.

The INTEGRIS Health Partners Pharmacy Task Force has finalized the 2015 formulary. You may find it on the INTEGRIS Health Partners website.
