As a result of the high energy, emotionally charged and well-attended (65 persons representing 27 medical practices and organizations) November 20, 2014 Primary Care Renewal Collaborative meeting the IPA has decided to help facilitate the effort to address referral issues that surfaced during that meeting.  Beginning in January 2015, in addition to providing this resource page, the IPA will:

 

  • Provide practice coaches to be available for practices involved in making changes
  • Provide regular updates on our medical community’s referral reform efforts
  • Work to bring together those who signed up to work on referral reform in Humboldt
  • Assist practices that wish to pair up with a primary or specialty care office to work on referral reform
  • Explore the possibility of a centralized referral system with the community
