The St. Rose Quality Care Network (SRQCN) is a network of physicians in southern Nevada who are united in a proactive, common-sense approach to health care reform and committed to improving quality of care and patient outcomes, as well as the efficiency and cost of the care provided. The SRQCN allows physicians to collectively negotiate with health plans while demonstrating their ability to achieve certain quality benchmarks.
SRQCN is a clinical integration organization, a collective network of independent physicians who commit to holding one another accountable for best practices in order to achieve quality and efficiency goals. Our future plans include participation with CMS (Medicare) in the Medicare Shared Savings Program (MSSP). To fulfill the intent of the Affordable Care Act, the Shared Savings Program aims to improve beneficiary outcomes and increase value of care by providing better care for individuals, better health for populations, and lowering growth in expenditures.
The Medicare Shared Savings Program (Shared Savings Program) was established by section 3022 of the Affordable Care Act. The Shared Savings Program is a key component of the Medicare delivery system reform initiatives included in the Affordable Care Act and is a new approach to the delivery of health care. Congress created the Shared Savings Program to facilitate coordination and cooperation among providers to improve the quality of care for Medicare Fee-For-Service (FFS) beneficiaries and reduce unnecessary costs.
SRQCN combines hospital and physician office data to help physicians monitor and manage patient outcomes. Physicians will be able to access and track their own performance; analyze patient outcomes and aggregate data; access multiple means of data submission; and apply custom data inputs, initiative guidelines and performance benchmarks. Among the goals of the physician-led network are reducing unnecessary and redundant tests and screenings, improving efficiency and controlling the cost of care. The program's initiatives are designed to achieve improvement in health care quality and effectiveness.
