June National Briefing: The CARE Act: Improving At Home and Preventive Care

June National Briefing

The CARE ACT: Supporting Caregivers for At-Home and Preventive Care
June 25, 1 - 2 p.m. EST

The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) has focused their 2015 advocacy efforts on a bill called the Caregiver Advise, Record and Enable (CARE) Act in efforts to improve patient care at home. The CARE Act outlines a process by which a family can choose a designated caregiver for a loved one, where a Hospital then has the responsibility to instruct and demonstrate how to perform different medical tasks and give proper care. Elaine Ryan, AARP’s Vice President of State Advocacy & Strategic Integration (SASI), will join PCPCC’s National Briefing on June 25th to inform us on the benefits and goals of this Act in relation to patient-centered primary care.

Elaine Ryan: Vice President of Government Relations, AARP

Now more than ever we have the opportunity to set a new vision for the future of our health care system. Our theme this year, Investing in Primary Care: Patients, Professionals, & Payment, offers the opportunity for you and your colleagues to participate in dozens of panel discussions and workshops that will focus on three key areas in need of increased investment including:
  • Payment reform in primary care 
  • Bolstering and expanding the primary care workforce 
  • Activating patients and families in their care, quality improvement and policy development 
This year our program will not only include high-level policy discussions from primary care and medical home thought leaders, but also “how to” discussions led by experts in the field in our workshops and break-out sessions.

PCPCC Webinars Present: Engaging Primary Care Practices in Quality Improvement
July 8, 1 - 2 p.m. EST

Primary care can be considered the cornerstone of effective and efficient health care that meets the needs of patients, families, and communities. New resources authored by Mathematica’s health experts offer strategies to help build and sustain practices’ ability to continuously and effectively engage in quality improvement activities. This white paper describes approaches practice facilitators (also known as coaches) can take to encourage primary care practices to undertake quality improvement (QI) activities. They present a framework for engaging primary care practices in QI and provide practical strategies for gaining initial buy-in from practices, maintaining meaningful and sustained engagement in QI efforts, and working with multiple QI programs.
