PIPs support consistent provider practices to lessen member confusion and enhance their health care experiences. PIPS also seek to provide continuity of care, promote racial equity and prevent duplicate services. We often work with other Minnesota MCOs and stakeholders to execute the PIPs. Typical PIPs run over a 3-year period.
This initiative is designed to promote health equity and decrease racial disparities for SNBC members living with diabetes by providing information for them to self-manage their diabetes. The goal is to reduce disparities in health care, access to care, and to address social determinants.

This performance improvement project seeks to decrease the initial use of opioids to prevent chronic use and addiction among members. According to data from the Medical Examiner’s Office, there were 338 opioid-related deaths in Hennepin County in 2021, a 24% increase from 2020 to 2021. The increase in the last two years is believed to be related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The main tactic this project uses is educating providers, care coordinators, community workers, members and the public about opioid issues, options for alternative pain treatment and safe disposal practices.
