Welcome to the St. Tammany Quality Network!
A primary goal of STQN is effective communication across care settings, so information technology investment is a top priority. We are pursuing tools to facilitate communication among STQN clinics, pharmacies, STPH (transcription, emergency, radiology and laboratory) plus outside labs. The next phase of our IT strategy is to offer a clinical disease registry outside of the Epic Health Record that will assist STQN physicians in managing high-risk patients and, in return, provide quality data. This is the information that demonstrates STQN's value to health plans.
With regards to commercial health products, St. Tammany Quality Network through its affiliation with Ochsner Health Network, is able to offer convenient access to care and innovative health insurance products. These products offer lower premiums than traditional products, while keeping the same coverage. Members have access to more than 290 STQN members, as well as St. Tammany Parish Hospital and Ochsner Health Network resources. Please visit the Ochsner Health Network
home page to learn more about our partnership and the work they are doing to move to advance care for our community.
