More than a decade ago, a group of physicians sought to create a best in class provider ecosystem. Those physicians traveled to several existing best in class clinically integrated networks to gather best practices. Together with their hospital partner, East Jefferson General Hospital, GSQN was formed.
Our initial focus was establishing evidence based treatment guidelines for key chronic conditions, minimizing clinical variation and leveraging data to drive clinical efficiency. We did so well we caught the eye of the state’s largest health insurer who approached us to help design a new program. Our clinical pilots were a success and soon we were pollinating that program in several locations in the state.
Fast forward to today where we partner with all types of payers in numerous value based arrangements. That drive for clinical efficiency has led us to another evolution whereby we directly benchmark performance direct to employers.
