Helping Private
Practitioners
Navigate a Changing Healthcare Landscape

Support

Recent years have seen unprecedented changes as the U.S. healthcare system shifts toward a pay-for-performance model. For private practitioners like Dr. Elizabeth White, internal medicine/pediatrics specialist on staff at St. Tammany Parish Hospital, keeping up with those changes can be daunting. “As a small private practitioner,” Dr. White recalls, “I didn’t have access to a lot of the information. The biggest benefit of being allied with OHN is this wonderful sense of security to be able to get answers to questions and the information I need. All these really confusing things have felt much more manageable knowing there’s an alliance out there and I can reach out to somebody. It’s also a tremendous help in negotiating these recent changing waters.” Additionally, as part of the OHN 2.0 strategy, the investments to join OACN and Epic are now within reach. “As of January 1, 2021, I am fully committed to join,” Dr. White continues. “I’ve been looking at it for three years but didn’t do it sooner because of the cost. Now the network has made that affordable, and everything is just more interlinked; everything’s just easier.”
