Letter from the President

Dear colleagues:

Taking care of those less fortunate than us is usually a very satisfying endeavor. INTEGRIS Health has always been very active in our community efforts to improve the lives of those we serve. The call to serve has been a core principal of INTEGRIS since its inception.

It is easy to become jaded and give up when we see numerous categories of health statistics in which Oklahoma is ranked near the bottom. Diabetes, smoking, obesity and opioid addiction all come to mind. What can we do about this? The burden of our state’s poor overall health rankings affects all of us either directly or indirectly.

INTEGRIS just received a grant to help expand a mobile clinic offering throughout the state. This mobile clinic can help improve the situations of some of our most needy neighbors through health screenings, education and basic medical care. By taking the services to the patients much can be achieved.

I know many of you have been on medical missions and do a lot of charity work and volunteer care in various free clinics and other settings across the state. I recently asked, “What is the next step required for INTEGRIS to broaden its scope of impacting care to the underserved?” The answer: YOU.

You may not know this, but INTEGRIS has multiple offerings and opportunities that could use your expertise. Getting back to the basics of what medicine is about by creating a healthy community to live, work and play in is a noble goal. I suspect that all of you answered “to help others” when asked why you wanted to be a doctor. Unfortunately, many days we don’t feel like we are helping anyone, and we’re just a cog in the machine. Giving to others is a way to change this feeling.

Please consider offering your time and talents here in the state of Oklahoma by reaching out to participate in some of our community work. Click on the link below to learn more about what INTEGRIS does to improve the community we live in. https://integrisok.com/about-integris/serving-our-community

We really changed a lot of lives in this community with our 5/50 program and subsequent utilization of our free clinics. We can do much more. We all benefit when we work improve our community and its health standing. Please strongly consider reaching out to help by contacting Steve Petty, system administrative director of community wellness, at 405-717-9874 or stephen.petty@integrisok.com if you’re interested in helping.

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

INTEGRIS Promeds Specialty Medication Program

The INTEGRIS Promeds Specialty Medication Program has a dedicated team of experts to provide prior authorization (PA) services to you, your staff, and most importantly, your patients. This will ensure that your patients’ specialty medications are approved and filled in a timely manner. Utilization of the INTEGRIS Promeds Specialty Medication Program will shift this PA process workload from your staff to the specialty medication team.

They provide personalized care and exceptional service to each patient in several ways. They navigate the PA process with all insurance companies and will communicate progress back to your staff throughout the process. They go above and beyond to research and apply any co-pay assistance program available. In the event the insurance company requires a specialty medication to be filled with only their mail order pharmacy, the team will forward the prescription, approval, and any co-pay assistance onto the mandated, filling pharmacy.

The INTEGRIS Promeds Specialty Medication Program also provides an adherence service where patient receive monthly reminder calls to ensure they are staying compliant on the medication(s) prescribed. In the event there are any issues or the patient discontinues a medication, the prescribing physician is alerted. They also offer free delivery and mail order services to patients. For more information call 405-951-2442.
