Lunch and Learn Speakers (1).png The Lunch and Learn discussion series is part of PCC’s Bridging the Gap in Primary Care Research project, which helps front-line primary care clinicians, consumers, advocates, payers and policymakers identify and share relevant primary care-based research to a variety of audiences. The Lunch and Learn series is a primary dissemination channel to educate primary care stakeholders about the most relevant and actionable primary care research. Lunch and Learn discussions bring together primary care researchers, advocates, policymakers and others to discuss key findings and policy implications of the most important research selected by PCC's research dissemination workgroup, with the goal of better integrating the research findings into organizational and policy decisions.  The PCC looks forward to hosting our 3rd Lunch and Learn discussion. After the last meeting we received overwhelming approval from participants about discussing both clinical research and health services research during the same discussion and will be presenting one of each for the December discussion.  We are pleased to welcome Mark Ebell, MD professor at the University of Georgia, College of Public Health, Frank Moriarty, PhD, senior lecturer in pharmacy and biomolecular sciences at the Royal College of Physicians in Ireland, and Karen Swietek, MPH, PhD, senior health economist at NORC.

The Health Care Payment Learning & Action Network (LAN) was created to bring together partners in the private, public, and nonprofit sectors to transform the nation’s healthcare system to one that emphasizes high-quality, efficient, and affordable care via alternative payment models (APMs). Since its inception in 2015, decision-makers from these stakeholder groups have worked together through the LAN to align efforts, capture best practices, disseminate information, and apply lessons learned to advance their shared goal for a revitalized healthcare system that works for everyone. The LAN Summit has been instrumental in bringing physicians, payers, government leaders, professional associations, academic leaders, consultants, patient advocacy representatives, and other healthcare thought leaders together for a dynamic schedule of networking, robust discussions, and knowledge exchange that fosters collaboration and collective action. The goal of the LAN generally and the LAN Summit specifically remains to collaborate and act on strategies to accelerate the transition to innovative, patient-centric payment models by focusing on equity and access, high-quality, affordable care, engagement of patients, and reduced provider burden.
