Provider Education Network
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 Provider Education Network has the resources to help you bring healthcare education and access to residents in every corner of our state. The Network serves as a conduit between healthcare professionals and continuing education, training, technical assistance and more—enabling you to better your practice and lead your patients into a healthier future.
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.
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.
Rural Health Workshop
Gain access to effective educational resources and networking opportunities. Our annual workshop also provides informative resources to help close the gap on rural health disparities and provide best practices for clinics in rural communities.
You can make your hospital or healthcare facility healthier by supporting your employees’ health! By implementing simple changes in your facility, you can take the first steps to becoming a WellSpot.
