The Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles (CCALAC) HCCN program is funded at $1.25 million under a three year program by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA). It is designed to improve access to care, enhance quality of care, and achieve cost efficiencies through the redesign of practices to integrate services, optimize patient outcomes, and prepare practices for value based reimbursement.

Elevation Health Partners has led technical assistance efforts under the HCCN program since 2012. We currently have a team of quality improvement coaches working with over 40 participating FCHQs throughout Los Angeles County to improve select quality measures to enhance performance under an L.A. Care Health Plan HEDIS P4P incentive program.


Throughout 2017, Elevation Health Partners facilitated a community-based stakeholder group to select and enhance an evidence-based community model for asthma. The team completed a six-week capacity building process and selected the Community Healthcare for Asthma Management and Prevention of Symptoms (CHAMPS) – a family-centered, patient-tailored, evidence-based, pediatric asthma intervention. The CHAMPS intervention combines asthma counseling and in-home mitigation of environmental triggers for patients with poorly controlled or moderate-to-severe asthma in primary care settings. The PRAPARE tool is a cornerstone of CHAMPS. Called Asthma Linkages, this is the first health initiative in the larger California Accountable Communities for Health Initiative (CACHI) framework.

The Southwest Pediatric Practice Transformation Network (PTN) is funded by the federal CMS CMMI Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPi) and represents a collaboration between Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) and Rady Children’s Hospital - San Diego (RCHSD). The PTN is the only pediatric health systems among the 39 national PTNs, supporting 230 pediatric practices (more than 1500 clinicians) to ready practices for value based reimbursement while achieving improvement in six pediatric conditions and related clinical quality measures (CQMs).

From 2016 - 2018, Elevation Health Partners worked with PTN and clinical leadership to implement the newly developed standardized clinical care guidelines and algorithms covering six clinical pediatric conditions in three FQHCs and over 40 small and solo practices (practices), spanning four EHR systems including EPIC, eCW, NextGen, and AllScripts.

To assist the practices in improving Healthcare Effectiveness Data and Information Set (HEDIS) and P4P performance, Elevation Health also developed and delivered a comprehensive “Coding for Quality” curriculum, and ran the “Deep Dive” learning collaborative delivered through in-person and webinar sessions covering best practices and deep dives in encounter submission, coding, billing, and claim editing (assigning the correct NCQA CPT, ICD, and HCPCS codes). The series also addressed adherence to evidenced-based care on the six pediatric conditions and related CQMs.

Elevation Health Partners prepared a guidebook and training plan to transition the ongoing training to the PTN staff and Quality Improvement Advisors.

Finally, our team documented the challenges and gaps in standardizing care protocols in the EHRs to inform future PTN, advocacy and policy work. Sample care algorithms and field training materials may be available upon request.


Throughout 2017 and 2018, Elevation Health Partners consultants served as coaches and facilitators to deliver IHQCs Quality Curriculum. This curriculum aims to help safety net providers address the growing demand to demonstrate efficiencies and achieve high-quality outcomes. “Building a Culture of Quality,” IHQCs newest learning community explores how Quality Improvement methodology is applied and embedded on an organizational level. This 18-month program is sponsored by Cedars-Sinai and is offered free of charge to participants.

eConsult is a telehealth process enabling primary care providers (PCPs) to consult remotely and conveniently with specialists. Store and forward.

eConsult can successfully reduce the need for face-to-face office visits by facilitating efficient exchange of information to meet clinical needs. Elevation Health Partners consultants were part of a core team leading the initial implementation of eConsult among county health organizations. Our team trained more than a dozen county facilities to use the platform.

eConsult is a collaboration of the Community Clinic Association of Los Angeles County, Health Care L.A. Independent Physician Association, L.A. Care Health Plan, L.A. County Department of Health Services, and MedPOINT Management.


Physician Orders for Life-Sustaining Treatment (POLST) turns a person’s wishes about end-of-life care into actionable medical orders. Signed by both doctor and patient, POLST helps give terminally-ill patients more control over their end-of-life care.

The Elevation Health Partners team worked collaboratively with BluePath Health and the Coalition for Compassionate Care of California (CCCC) to examine the feasibility of an electronic POLST registry in California. This project was funded by the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF).

The feasibility study found that POLST implementation reached an appropriately high level to support a statewide electronic POLST registry. This effort led to a partnership with the Institute for Population Health Improvement (IPHI) of the UC Davis Health System and funding for an 18-month electronic registry pilot for two counties in California.
