If you’re like them, you’ll want to hear our speakers’ practical tips on risk-based contracting, high quality performance, and effective resource utilization.

What unites us in our collective vision to make advanced primary care foundational to U.S. health system reform? What does person-centered, team-based primary care actually mean to patients, payers, and health care providers? How do we ensure our movement is inclusive of all stakeholders that care about primary care?

Please join us for a special summit focused on developing new “Shared Principles for Person-Centered, Team-Based Primary Care” that will help set the future agenda of the Collaborative’s work.

Co-hosted by the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) and FMA Health, the goal of this summit is to convene a diverse set of stakeholders to help identify and develop consensus around shared principles of high-performing, team-based, person-centered primary care. This is a unique opportunity to collaborate with committed colleagues from diverse organizations and promote what you view as the essential principles of high-performing primary care.

This training provides the opportunity to learn alongside your patient partners, identifying “best practices” and strategies for quality improvement and care redesign. You will also learn the best ways to integrate patient- and family-centered care principles into care design throughout your organization, how to effectively perform in your respective roles, and more!
