Trends to improve quality of care and contain escalating cost throughout the healthcare system have been fleeting and elusive. Over the past two decades the industry has seen double-digit cost increases while simultaneously witnessing a decline in clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction.
In the face of these challenges, a new model of care has emerged – the patient-centered health care home (PCHCH), which, at its heart, offers patients a point of entry into the healthcare system that ensures continuous and coordinated care. Through this model of highly coordinated care, which allows physicians, pharmacists, nurses, case managers and consumers to move away from the quick-fix approaches of the past, the goal is to reduce unnecessary costs through optimal utilization of resources and, in the end, to produce a healthier, more involved patient.
In this training session, brought to you by URAC, the leader in quality accreditation programs, you will hear from leaders in medical home development – from both payer and provider settings – in order to understand best practices for implementation, strategies for reimbursement and incentives, and the unique role of case managers within the PCHCH.
Join an enlightening, 90-minute training session on advancements in the medical home model and learn from frontline trendsetters how to make the PCHCH model work in your practice, organization or setting.
About the Webinar
The PCHCH is a coordinated approach to outpatient care based on seven principles (Sidorov, May, Case In Point, 2011):
- A personal physician
- Physician directed medical practice
- Whole person orientation
- Integrated, coordinated care
- Quality and safety emphasis
- Enhanced access
- Payment reform
When it is paired with health information technology, supporters suggest that the PCHCH’s personalized approach can transform the delivery of primary care. Initial studies on the impact on the PCHCH have been very promising. Some of the elements that are associated with success of the PCHCH include increased patient access to providers, the effective use of health information technology (such as patient tracking, predictive modeling, risk profiling, and decision support and quality improvement), meaningful incentive provider payments and dedicated care coordinators that are either on-site or are community based.
The Patient Centered Health Care Home Webinar delivers valuable insights for physicians interested in developing a patient centered medical home practice as well as case managers and other healthcare professional who are interested in using their skills and expertise to ensure efficient and effective care coordination.
