CareFirst BCBS and ACP offer new tool to advance development of patient-centered medical homes
Date:1/4/2012

nal meeting for PCMH practices seeking to learn more about ACP's MHB 2.0 at the Columbia Sheraton Hotel on Wednesday, January 25, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Practices can register for the meeting by visiting http://www.carefirst.com/cpet or by calling CareFirst's enrollment hotline at 877-269-2219. Information on upcoming regional meetings and seminars can be found by visiting http://www.carefirst.com/cpet.

CareFirst PCMH users of MHB 2.0 will be part of an online community of PCMH practices, large and small, that are committed to improving patient care. Practices will have access to best practice videos and a discussion board where questions can be posed to a community of MHB 2.0 colleagues. Learning modules available through MHB 2.0 focus on developing medical homes and associated clinical topics.

Each module includes:

  • Background information an explanation of key principles, research, and important concepts for members of the PCMH team.
  • The Practice Biopsy a self-assessment that covers National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA), Utilization Review Accreditation Commission (URAC), and draft Joint Commission standards. The Practice Biopsy helps practices identify opportunities for improvement or validate efforts a practice has already undertaken in this area.
  • A Case Study "How It Works in Practice" describes the efforts of one practice as it works through the findings generated through each module.
  • The Resource Library a virtual bookshelf, which includes relevant references and informative guides in a variety of formats including downloadable guides and policy templates.
  • Reporting functions to help track progress over-time, identify opportunities for improvement and compare practices.

CareFirst will make available the MHB 2.0 tool beginning in January 2012 to PCMH physicians in good PCMH program
