Welcome to the Clinical Transformation Portfolio

LPHI brings a unique approach to clinical transformation, combining highly skilled practice coaches with deep clinical experience and unparalleled expertise in upstream factors that influence patient health outcomes and drive health care costs. With decades of experience helping health care organizations transform their operations to provide quality, patient-centered care, LPHI is a valued partner in achieving the triple aim: better care, smarter spending, healthier people.

Primary goals

  • Support value-based health delivery models that integrate behavioral health, social services, and community-oriented public health
  • Advance high quality, integrated primary care practices in communities to improve patient experience, reduce costs, improve quality of care, and engage community partnerships.
  • Bridge clinical care and community health
  • Contribute to health care delivery and finance policy through analytical insight


LPHI has contributed to significant achievements in the transformation of the New Orleans health care system. After Hurricane Katrina decimated the city’s infrastructure, including crucial primary and emergency care access point, LPHI helped rebuild neighborhood-based community health centers through the federally funded Primary Care Access and Stabilization Grant (PCASG). All health centers participating in PCASG achieved NCQA recognition as patient-centered medical homes. Beginning in 2013, in partnership with local health care leadership, LPHI established the Greater New Orleans Health Information Exchange (GNOHIE). With collaborative, member-driven governance, the GNOHIE supports local hospitals and primary care clinics to share vital patient information and sends alerts when a patient is admitted to the emergency room or inpatient care.

Examples of Current Projects

  • Gulf Region Health Outreach Program: Primary Care Capacity Project
  • Health Care Control Network
