Clinics annually must meet FPA Network Board-approved defined clinical performance objectives.
CPOs typically include:
• Defined quality measures, and/or
participation in a quality initiative
• Defined Patient experience survey goals
• Other FPA clinical performance objectives as
determined by FPA Care Delivery and Quality Improvement Committee
Clinical performance objectives
FPA Network requires all member clinics to participate in annual clinical performance objectives (CPOs). We design our CPOs to improve patient care, enhance clinical integration and support our mission to heal, discover and educate for longer, healthier lives. CPOs demonstrate alignment with our efforts to meet the Triple Aim of providing superior clinical outcomes, patient experience and excellent value.
Assessment of patient experience
Measuring patient experience provides valuable feedback to clinic leaders, providers and patients. We expect clinics to participate in annual patient experience measurement as directed by our annual CPOs.
Assessment of quality
Our primary care clinic practices fulfill the quality CPO requirements through participation in our clinical measurement program. This program supports evidenced-based clinical guidelines and uses metrics driven by Minnesota Community Measurement and payers.
Our specialty care clinics fulfill the quality CPO requirement by participating in clinical measurement to include Meaningful Use and Physician Quality Reporting System reporting or by conducting a quality initiative with defined goals and objectives. Specialty clinics also may fulfill the quality requirement by participating on an FPA Network committee.
Our annual CPOs may also require primary and/or specialty care participation in additional initiatives. For example, in 2016, primary care clinics are required to participate in coding education.
