St. Tammany Quality Network

The St. Tammany Quality Network is a select group of key physicians from the St. Tammany Parish medical community who have joined together in a clinically integrated practice model.

STQN's focus will be to provide the best possible care to our patients and be accountable for costs. STQN will be a physician-led group that is being designed and implemented in a structure with all of the attributes of a high-performing physician group:

  • An identity of being an integrated group that enhances care coordination and physician engagement on quality
  • An infrastructure based on tools for performance success
  • Individual “engagement levels” including appropriate financial incentives and transparency



GOALS


The goal of STQN will be to deliver and demonstrate the highest level of quality of care and quality of service based on the Institute of Medicine’s definition of quality:
The degree to which health services for individuals and populations increase the likelihood of desired health outcomes and are consistent with current professional knowledge.

STQN will focus on measuring and improving clinical quality and the patient experience. There will be accountability for cost of care resulting in increased value for payers and an increased profitable volume of services to the clinically integrated STQN.
