Networking

Perhaps you're a solo practitioner in a small town; or the newly appointed medical director of a multi-specialty clinic in a growing community and busy practice; or a lab manager trying to write a policy to keep your facility's lab in compliance with mounting regulations...or the busy administrator responsible for human resources, billing, practice management, purchasing - the list goes on. We're all trying to do so much more these days with less. Integrity Health realizes people need a place to recharge - to be able to ask questions and learn among peers. We offer a number of groups within our organization to help our busy clinic staffs continue their education and network:

  • Advisory Committee
    A committee of administrators and physicians whose purpose is to advise the Board of Governors and administration on various areas of our operation.
  • Medical Director QI Committee
    Every Integrity clinic is required to have a physician medical director serve on our Quality Improvement Committee. This committee sets our strategic direction in quality improvement and reviews our results throughout the year.
  • Quality Improvement Coordinators Group
    As with our Medical Director QI Committee, each clinic is required to have a staff person who accepts the role as QI Coordinator. Each one provides input to the MD QI Committee which then develops our annual QI plan. QI Coordinators launch the plan, shepherding it through each clinic's unique culture.
  • Integrity Administrative Group
    Our clinic administrators meet monthly to discuss contract issues, ask and answer questions, and network.
  • Purchasing/special groups
    As needs are identified, groups are brought together to either address, or receive education on, the need or issue. This includes our Lab Manager Group which meets every other month as well as an Annual Billing and Coding Group and physician education events.
  • Professional Development Series
    In 2011 we launched our Professional Development Series with topics including saving your clinic money through group purchasing programs, 2011 changes in billing and coding, value stream mapping (an ICSI presentation), patient customer service training (MMIC presentation) and more planned for later in the year.
  • EHR User "Support" Group
    This group began when all clinics in Northern Minnesota and Northwestern Wisconsin using the Practice Partner EHR (Electronic Health Record) system were invited to participate in a regional user group. We had representatives from a multitude of Integrity clinics and two non-Integrity clinics attending this user group.  We've since broadened the scope of the User Group to include all EHR users, regardless of which EHR they use.  Our meetings have two tracks - one is clinical and one is compliance / requirement-focused.  We share templates, tips and creative uses of any of our EHR software with each other to educate on reaching 'meaningful use' requirements and ensure that as EHR's are
    implemented in our clinics, the data within is retrievable when pulling reports for various QI and compliance measures.
