GHI and HIP Launch Pilot Medical Home Network Project with Support from Commonwealth Fund
Date:1/9/2008

n and care management. Data on the success of the project will be derived from submissions of claims and performance measures of quality for procedures such as mammograms, diabetes testing, and cervical cancer screenings; outcomes for diabetes and hypertension; efficiency measures; and patient experience measures such as overall satisfaction, access, self-care support, and physician communication.

The Ethel Donahue Center for Translating Research Into Practice at the University of Connecticut will track and assess the experiences and challenges faced by the medical practices as they transform into Medical Homes. The resulting impact on quality will be tracked and assessed by NCQA, an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to measuring the quality of America's health care. At the end of the two-year study period, the Plan will compile and publish project results.

"Physicians in our networks are important partners in the care that is provided to our members," said Aran Ron, GHI President. "In this project we are committing to helping groups of physicians transform their practices according to the Medical Home concept that has been developed and endorsed by the primary care specialty societies."

"The patient-centered medical home model holds great promise for extending the physician-patient relationship beyond the confines of the doctor's office," said Margaret E. O'Kane, President of NCQA. "Well-considered efforts such as this one will use standardized tools to assess patient-centered medical homes. It's important to be able to compare the results of this project with that of others to advance our understanding of the value of medical homes."

Karen Davis, Commonwealth Fund President, noted, "If they succeed they will have blazed the trail for other physicians and health plans."

Interested HIP and GHI physicians who would like to learn more about this program may attend the following seminar at no cost on Thurs., Jan. 10,
