PCPCC Webinars Present: New Priorities to Align and Engage Our Stakeholders

How can we promote investment in primary care? Which links can be drawn by primary care practices between the community and the medical neighborhood? How can we entice patients, families and even employers to engage in improving care quality?  And finally, how can we build an interprofessional health workforce trained and prepared to deliver high quality primary care in team-based settings.

Engaging Primary Care Practices in Quality Improvement

The Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) hosted an Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) webinar on July 8 on engaging primary care practices in quality improvement. 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 AHRQ and Mathematica Policy Research offer strategies to help build and sustain practices’ ability to continuously and effectively engage in quality improvement (QI) activities.

The CARE ACT: Supporting Caregivers for At-Home and Preventive Care

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.

PCPCC National Briefing: An Exploration of AHRQ's PCMH Resource Center

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has developed an extensive collection of resources for the primary care community to use in research and evaluation, quality improvement, and the delivery of improved primary care services. On May 21 at 1 p.m. EST, Janice Genevro, PhD, a health scientist at AHRQ, joined the PCPCC's National Briefing to provide an exploration of the PCMH Resource Center web site and other AHRQ tools designed to support the delivery of evidence-based, patient-centered primary care. 

PCPCC National Briefing: Health Care Costs and Value for the Consumer Advocate

Last month, Consumers Union, the advocacy arm of Consumer Reports, launched the Health Care Value Hub, a networking and resource center for advocates working for lower costs and better value in health care. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the Health Care Value Hub will support and connect consumer advocates across the United States, providing comprehensive, research-based information and tools to help them advocate for policies that reduce health care costs and increase quality.

PCPCC Webinar: Patient Engagement Through Technology

Everything you know about gamification is wrong. Gamification is NOT about points and badges and leaderboards. Putting points and badges on top of systems that were not designed to be game-like is like welding wheels on a bicycle. It looks from a distance like it will work, but the results are guaranteed to disappoint. 

Collaboration and Practice Transformation in Residency Education

The current fee-for-service model of primary care delivery in the United States is outdated and wreaking havoc on the foundation of our healthcare system. This model will be phased out over the next decade in favor of value-based reimbursement (among other changes). Residency programs, however, are often based on the old model of care and, consequently, are not prepared to train residents for the future models of care. In order to address this deficiency, residency-training collaboratives have been popping up around the country.

PCPCC National Briefing: HIMSS Public Policy Initiatives in 2015: Using Health IT to Enable Healthcare Transformation

The Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) is focused on ensuring that health IT is helping to support healthcare transformation and the move toward value-based care delivery.

Primary Care Integration into Behavioral Health Settings: Supporting Individuals with Serious Mental Illness

On Feb. 26,  Martha Gerrity, MD, MPH, PhD, Clinical Epidemiologist at the Center for Evidence-based Policy at Oregon Health & Science University, joined the PCPCC to discuss her latest Milbank Memorial Fund report, “Integrating Primary Care into Behavioral Health Settings: What Works for Individuals with Serious Mental Illness.”

Primary Care, ACOs, and Payment Reform: A Conversation with Mark McClellan of the Brookings Institution

 

Mark McClellan of the Brookings Institution joined a PCPCC webinar to discuss the important role primary care leadership plays in health care transformation, including physician-led ACOs and other payment reform initiatives. 

He highlighted major themes and recommendations from a recently released ACO Learning Network toolkit, Adopting Accountable Care: An Implementation Guide for Physician Practices. The four major themes include:
