Innovations in Adolescent Health

The health care community is becoming increasingly attentive to customizing the medical home model for patient groups with distinct needs.  One such population is adolescents (ages 12 to 21); a group with unique health needs, service use patterns, and care experiences. This webinar will help you learn more about specific models of adolescent health care, perspectives from adolescents regarding the importance of primary care, and new  recommendations for improving the effectiveness of a medical home for adolescent patients.

PCMH Behavioral Health Integration - Screening for Depression

Care Coordination and the Patient's Role in Shared Decision Making and Team Communication

 In this webinar, we explore the definition of the care team and care coordination as well as the key elements of care coordination within the PCMH. We will also talk about the patient’s perspective by reviewing Christine Bechtel’s research on patients and the delivery system as a whole – its challenges and potential solutions – including care coordination and the medical home.  

Primary Care Innovations: Stories from the Field

 A healthy primary care system is essential to our nation’s health system, but primary care practice is at a crossroads.  Burnout is rampant, fewer physicians are choosing the specialty, and many existing primary care doctors are leaving it.  Physicians Chris Sinsky and Tom Sinsky and their colleagues visited more than 20 primary care practices that have adopted innovations to enhance the job satisfaction of physicians, other clinicians and staff while also improving the quality of care and the patient experience.

The Role of Health Technology in the New Care Models

 Speaker: CDR Kevin Dorrance, MD, FACP, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Bethesda. CDR Dorrance talks about how to realize health technology’s potential to improve communications between physicians and patients, understand health initiatives that are rewarding physicians on the basis of quality and discover how to enhance the coordination of care in a PCMH. 

Beacon Community Case Study: Innovative Solutions for Using HIT to Implement the NCQA PCMH Model

The Crescent City Beacon Community in New Orleans is one of 17 ONC-funded Beacon Communities building and strengthening local health IT infrastructure and testing innovative approaches to make measurable improvements in health, care and cost. This community faced a significant challenge with its PCMH implementation in the community clinic setting: deciphering how to use technology in a way to support care team functions while reducing, rather than increasing, staff and provider workloads.

Supporting Care Coordination within the PCMH model

 Discussion of key ingredients of population health and disease management that support the PCMH. This includes Protected Health Information (PHI) tools that can support the medical home as well as information systems for PCMH care coordination.

Leadership Tools To Meet The Adaptive Challenges Of PCMH Transformation

The demands for transformation in primary care are high. Clinician leaders and administrative partners lead this change, but their usual methods are better suited to technical adjustment than adaptive challenge. This is the story of implementing a practical set of leadership tools robust enough to embrace change and actively involve the entire organization in its own transformation. Speakers: Macaran A.
