What Is North Texas CIN (TXCIN) ?

 

What Is North Texas CIN?

Hey, everybody, my name is Ben Gazaway, I serve as the Chief Operating Officer for North Texas Clinically Integrated Network, or TXCIN. Wanna say welcome, we're excited to have you as part of our network, we've got a lot of exciting things going on here. Today is the first. This is the first of several videos that we're gonna be putting out that details some exciting things that are going on in the network, as well as industry news in and around the country, so hope you'll tune in for those. Our mission at TXCIN is simple. We're here to help independent physicians remain and independent by connecting them to the technological, the clinical, and the financial resources they need to be strong and independent in an increasingly consolidated marketplace. It's really exciting. What started out as a small group of physicians meeting, trying to figure out ways to improve quality, improve outcomes, and try to reduce the overall cost of care, has really blossomed into a network of over 800 primary and specialty care physicians spanning from Granbury all the way to Jacksonville, Texas, from Sherman down to Ovilla, and all points in between. And we're all really united around the common goal, and that is the ideal of keeping independent physicians independent.

Our mission at TXCIN is simple. We're here to help independent physicians remain and independent by connecting them to the technological, the clinical, and the financial resources they need to be strong and independent in an increasingly consolidated marketplace. 

In the upcoming weeks and months, you can look forward to a number of videos all aimed at helping you be more efficient, more profitable in your practice, and at TXCIN, we're excited to be a part of that. 

What Does TXCIN Bring To Your Practice?

So what do we do? What do we bring to your practice? We offer such things as coding and documentation support, which we all know is more important now than ever. We offer social services, because, let's be honest, you can preach all you want about things like colonoscopies and mammograms, but if there's social determinants that are affecting care, you need help with that, and so that's why we brought on an amazing social worker that really can be an extension of your practice. We have care navigation, not to mention a whole portfolio of technology that really is aimed at making your life easier, reducing the number of clicks that you have to manage, reducing the burden of administration in quality reporting. We bring on operational resources to really help with that in your practice. We're excited to be engaging in that way and look forward to having impact in those areas in the days ahead. 

In addition to these clinical resources, we also have a number of amazing practice strategists, and they have one goal, and that is to help your practice win in this game of value-based care. And we're excited about that. They're gonna be bringing data points to you, they're gonna be bringing opportunities to grow, opportunities for savings, opportunities to increase quality and efficiency, and we're really excited about the group of young men and women that we have that will be engaging you on a more regular basis.

TXCIN is unique in the marketplace in that we offer our practices the ability to centralize performance data. This is data that we all use to get better and stronger as a network.

Okay, so that all sounds great, but let's look ahead at 2018. I have two challenges that I wanna put forth to our entire TXCIN network. Number one, would you commit with me to engaging with our team? As I've mentioned before, we have an amazing group of clinical and a strategic personnel that are committed to one thing, and that is your success in the value-based world. Would you engage with them? They're gonna be coming out and bringing you reports on a quarterly, on a monthly, maybe even on a weekly basis, bringing you opportunities, showing you where the low-hanging fruit is in terms of quality, in terms of costs, in terms of outcomes. Will you commit to engaging with them and working with them? Secondly is, I want you to commit to engaging with the tools. As you know, TXCIN is unique in the marketplace in that we offer our practices the ability to centralize performance data. This is data that we all use to get better and stronger as a network. Will you commit with me to really using those tools in 2018? 

Okay, so I hope you can pick up on a little bit of the passion that we have for independent providers in North Texas. You could look forward to more videos from our team, as well as vendors and ancillaries that will bring value to your practice. I'm excited about 2018, it's gonna be our best year ever. Again, my name is Ben Gazaway, I serve as the Chief Operating Officer, and we're excited to have you as part of TXCIN.

ACOs vs HMOs: Here’s How They’re Different

Health systems and managed health care are inventions of the early 20th century, but it wasn’t until the early 1970s that Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs) were defined as such and considered solutions for dangerously high healthcare costs. Although prevalent throughout the 1980s and 90s, HMOs for various reasons...

Quality Over Quantity: What Value-based Care Means for Providers

The age of value-based healthcare is here, and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has taken the lead in healthcare delivery and reimbursement reform. The strategy is driven by a three-part aim to offer better quality health, to improve patient healthcare experiences, and to deliver services at lower costs. CMS has designed an array of care programs and payment models that are meant to shift the focus of healthcare from volume-based care to value-based care, to change the mindset of providers in today’s healthcare system to focus on quality over quantity. However, this change is not a “light switch” type of adjustment, where providers can...
