Clinic demonstrates improved quality of care resulting in cost savings for Medicare
Date:8/8/2011

ices to achieve shared savings in each of the five performance years. Those sites, besides Marshfield Clinic, that received performance payments this year include Park Nicollet Health Services, St. Louis Park, Minn.; St. John's Health System, Springfield, Mo.; and University of Michigan Faculty Group Practice, Ann Arbor, Mich.

"The Clinic is receiving a shared savings payment of about $15.83 million which will be used to fund further changes and improvements in how Marshfield Clinic delivers care to all of our patients," Praxel said. "The performance payment Marshfield Clinic receives will allow us to continue beneficial health care activities that are not currently reimbursed by most insurers right now."

Marshfield Clinic has made substantial investments to develop needed tools to improve quality of care delivered to patients, even prior to this project. For example:

  • a well-developed electronic health record (E.H.R.) and is a leader in information technology. All Clinic physicians have access to patient records from all Clinic centers through the E.H.R., which helps to eliminate duplication of services, like lab tests and imaging. The E.H.R. helps plan visits; addresses care at the time of the visit; and assures appropriate monitoring of chronic conditions is performed.
  • a 24-7 telephone nurse line for advice and triage for patients who have their primary care provider within the Marshfield Clinic system
  • anticoagulation clinic
  • congestive heart failure clinic programs
  • cholesterol management programs
  • a well-established telemedicine initiative

Changes implemented as a result of participation in the demonstration project are applied to all Marshfield Clinic patients, not to just Medicare beneficiaries.

"The entire Marshfield Clinic organization is committed to doing the hard work as a team to improve the value we deliver for all patients, and I would like to thank each individual for his
