Franklin Community Health Network believes that better health for populations, better care for individuals, lower cost per capita care and improved staff and provider satisfaction is the appropriate framework for our future.
This past year our organization has continued the process of reinventing itself as part of the transformation from volume-based to value-based, population-focused health care. The strategy is designed to be flexible and acknowledges that the organization must be financially and operationally successful in the existing fee-for-service, volume-based environment, while taking steps to position itself with the necessary knowledge, tools, skills, and experience to be successful in moving toward population health management.
This past year has additionally demonstrated that being a member of MaineHealth has provided our organization with many advantages around the sharing of resources such as: personnel, clinical best-practices, strategic planning, supply chain, legal services, and health insurance, among others. And, since June 1, we met our goal of 90 percent of benefit-eligible employees completing a health screening and health assessment that integrates the Works on Wellness program to maximize the health, quality of life, and overall well-being of our employees.
In closing, I would also like to extend a special recognition to the Franklin Community Health Network board of directors who have volunteered hundreds of hours and immeasurable expertise to assure the success of this organization.
