Integrated Healthcare Partners
The RI Executive Office of Health and Human Services (EOHHS) receives funding from the federal government to implement and sustain an Accountable Entity (AE) program for the RI Medicaid enrolled population. The overall goal of the program is to improve quality, reduce the total cost of care, and shift from service-based payments to quality-based payments. Currently, there are six AEs that participate in the Medicaid AE Program in RI, including IHP. We are unique in that we are the only AE in the state comprised of nine partners: five FQHCs, and four CMHCs (one CHC is also a CMHC). Other AEs in the state may only be comprised of a single private practice, a single FQHC, or a hospital-based primary care practice. Lastly, IHP is contracted with two Medicaid Managed Care Organizations (MCO); Neighborhood Health Plans of RI (NHPRI) and United Health Care (UHC).
IHP is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that consists of the President and CEO, VP Quality – Medical Director, VP Finance, Data Analyst, and Executive Administrative Assistant. IHP has a 10-member Board of Directors (BOD) comprised of at least one representative from each of the member organizations. From the Board there are two formal committees, the Executive Committee, and the Finance Committee.
In addition to the BOD, there are two organization-wide committees: The Clinical Leadership Committee (CLC) and the Quality and Data Analysis Committee (QDA).
