Provider Education Network

Well-Ahead Louisiana’s Provider Education Network connects providers, healthcare facilities and hospitals to an ever-growing bank of tools, training and technical assistance to help you effectively serve your patients.

Together We Can Make a Difference

Education and Resources for Louisiana Healthcare Professionals

Well-Ahead’s Provider Education Network helps healthcare professionals address the challenges facing our communities by serving as a resource to help you provide the best possible care to your patients and help make every angle of your practice more effective. The better we understand the data surrounding our residents’ health and the resources available to help them, the easier it will become to generate positive health outcomes.

Through programs that offer technical assistance, practice sustainability and the development of rural health clinics, the network has the resources to bring healthcare education and access to residents in every corner of our state.

Join the Provider Education Network

The Provider Education Network provides you access to community facilities that you can refer and share with your patients to help prevent or manage their chronic diseases. Additionally, we connect providers to resources such as quality improvement strategies, patient education tools and workforce development opportunities. Furthermore, the Network can help you reach previously inaccessible patients by providing assistance using the growing trend of telehealth to expand medical care access to the rural areas that pocket our state.

By serving as a conduit between providers and continuing education, training, technical assistance and more, the Provider Education Network offers opportunities that enable you to better your practice and lead your patients into a healthier future.

Community-Clinical Linkages

Community-clinical linkages serve as a connection between community and clinical settings to help improve population health. By developing partnerships and connecting communities, you can help improve patients access to preventive and chronic care services, and reduce preventive diseases in our community.

Education and Training

The Provider Education Network can help you stay at the top of your game with continuing education resources, technical assistance, training and hands-on coaching.

Healthcare Workforce Recruitment and Retention

Throughout the U.S., there are geographic areas, populations and facilities with too few primary care, dental health and mental health providers and services. To help ensure our community members have access to healthcare services, we aim to connect our healthcare providers to workforce opportunities throughout the state of Louisiana.

Population Health Cohort

The Population Health Cohort is an exclusive collaborative quality improvement opportunity which supports the implementation of strategies aimed at improving population health within a primary care setting, with a specific focus on chronic disease related outcomes. It gives Louisiana providers and their facilities the opportunity to have hands-on assistance in implementing evidence-based practices that can improve their quality of care and their patients’ health outcomes.

Practice Management

Utilizing a practice management system can ensure that your clinic is running as efficiently as possible. Management systems provide comprehensive data that can be used by staff to identify opportunities for improvement and to reduce wasteful spending.

Take the lead. Start the designation process to move your healthcare facility or hospital to a WellSpot today!

We’ve developed a set of wellness benchmarks just for colleges and universities that want to implement healthy changes like these. From implementing a tobacco-free policy, to supporting breastfeeding mothers, to increasing access to healthy food choices, these benchmarks provide evidence based strategies to move the health of our communities forward.

We will walk alongside you as you work to meet these benchmarks. Once enough benchmarks are met, we will officially designate you as a Level 3, Level 2 or Level 1 WellSpot—our highest designation.

Being designated as a WellSpot is a big accomplishment—so your community needs to know all about it! Upon designation, you will receive a recognition certificate from the Louisiana Department of Health. You will also receive an official WellSpot decal to display on the entrance of your school. In addition, your organization will be added to our interactive WellSpot map. You will also receive a promotional toolkit to help you promote your designation on social media, to the press and more!
