Advanced primary care, such as Patient-Centered Medical Homes, transform the systems and culture of practice to meet the needs of patients.  Leading innovators are taking the next step, by integrating care with important community-based services—such as behavioral health, social support services, and community health workers.  These partnerships create additional tools to support patients, especially those who are high risk and/or high cost.  On this webinar, attendees will hear about leading efforts to support this patient-centered care from clinicians, a community-based organization, and a health insurance provider.

Panelists:

David Ehrenberger, Chief Medical Officer, HealthTeamWorks

Marc Rosen, Technical Advisor, Clinical Integration, YMCA of the USA

In 2016, PCC hosted the first-ever Pediatric Supergroup meeting. We convened nationally prominent pediatric experts to share and address the concerns that are particular to pediatric supergroups. We had a sold-out event that left attendees demanding a follow up.

In 2018, the meeting will extend discussions about important topics from last year – from legal and legislative issues to IT security – with additional content developed as the supergroup market has evolved.

Topic Overview

Physician burnout is increasingly recognized as a threat to the nation’s health workforce and to delivering population health, higher quality of care and reduced cost. It is estimated that two-thirds of family physicians report at least one element of burnout and family medicine is among the top five medical specialties reporting burnout.

Physicians facing burnout are at higher risk of drug and alcohol abuse as well as suicide. This problem impacts not only physicians but it has also been linked to lower patient satisfaction, higher medical error rates and higher physician and staff turnover.

As we strive towards meeting the quadruple aim of health care it becomes increasingly important to look for effective strategies to help combat burnout, not only from bright spots within the medical community, but also leaders in other industries that are tackling this problem. Join us for a primary care forum that explores this important topic and starts to offer solutions to move us from burnout to wellness.

About the Seminar

This program is an in-depth guide to NCQA Recognition requirements and the process for achieving PCMH recognition. Recognized practices and clinicians have proved the relevance of the NCQA PCMH standards to the Triple Aim. The 2017 standards emphasize a practice wide commitment to sustaining the PCMH transformation, demonstrating patient care and population health management, care coordination and ongoing quality improvement.

Practices are rewarded for integrating behavioral healthcare and addressing the impact of social determinants on patient needs. NCQA requirements are positioned to qualify for the Merit-Based Incentive Performance System (MIPS) Clinical Practice Improvement Activities (CPIA) and to support other MIPS requirements under MACRA.

Join us for this thorough review of the PCMH 2017 requirements and the documentation needed to support an application for NCQA Recognition.

What You Will Learn

At the conclusion of the program, participants will have the knowledge they need to:

• Identify the core attributes of patient-centered medical homes.

• Identify required documentation and determine how to present it.

• Describe processes and procedures that demonstrate transformation into the medical home model.

• Work with an assigned NCQA Representative on a plan to earn recognition.

• Examine the more challenging aspects of the requirements in a variety of practice environments.

Who Should Attend

This program is designed for any health care professional, health care decision maker or consultant interested in getting the inside perspective directly from expert faculty from NCQA in evaluating a primary care practice and their ability to become Recognized as a Patient-Centered Medical Home by NCQA.

About the Seminar

The NCQA PCMH Recognition program plays an integral role in practice transformation and improving the quality of health care. This advanced course is intended for individuals who have applied NCQA PCMH Recognition requirements in the practice setting. It examines the PCMH 2017 standards and the redesigned assessment process. It takes a hands-on approach to each PCMH Concept, and a deeper dive to explore the key characteristics of a successful medical home.

This course will discuss evidence to support the core and elective criteria. It will also focus on advanced topics such as the Distinction Modules, electronic Clinical Quality Measures, and how to receive autocredit.  Attendees will participate in facilitated activities that demonstrate how earning elective credits builds upon the Core criteria of a Competency. Our faculty will incorporate topics on behavioral health integration, the importance of assessing the social determinants of patient health, engaging with patients and the community, and continuous quality improvement.

What You Will Learn

At the conclusion of the program, participants will have the knowledge they need to:

• Discuss vendor prevalidation, autocredit, electronic clinical quality measurement, and certified electronic reporting to facilitate recognition and annual reporting.

• Explain how elective criteria build upon core criteria within a competency.

• List the opportunities and challenges to succeed in the PCMH model of care.

• Determine a strategy for preparing a practice for the three (3) virtual check-ins and begin to create a transformation plan.

• Describe the types of evidence a practice can provide to meet the intent of a criterion, competency, and concept.

• Explain the role of PCMH Certified Content Experts in assisting practices through the Commit, Transform, and Succeed parts of the PCMH recognition.

Who Should Attend

This interactive program is geared towards individuals with significant knowledge of the NCQA PCMH Standards and experience implementing those standards in a practice setting and who have attended the Introduction to PCMH 2017 seminar; and those who intend to obtain the individual Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Content Expert Certification credential.
