Key Pillars of Patient Centered Medical Home Will Be Focus of March 30 Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative Stakeholder's Meeting
Date:2/18/2010

Dr. David Blumenthal invited to offer keynote at Washington, DC meeting

WASHINGTON, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the patient centered medical home moves onto the front burner as a model for transforming health care delivery, thought leaders are focusing on four key elements essential to making the model successful.  These elements—care coordination, expanded access, meaningful health IT and new financial models—will be the foundation for the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative's March 30 Stakeholder's Meeting in Washington, DC at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center.

"Cultivate the PCMH: What Really Matters" will be a working meeting of stakeholders with the shared goal of advancing adoption of the patient centered medical home (PCMH) across the nation.  The Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) is a coalition of more than 700 organizations representing the nation's business leaders, consumers, primary care physicians and other health care stakeholders.  Working groups within the PCPCC will convene for interactive sessions around these four pillars that undergird PCMH initiatives that have demonstrated both improved health outcomes and cost savings.

The Stakeholder's Working Meeting will include expert panel presentations on the following topics:

  • Delivering on the Promise: Success Factors to Advance Care Coordination
  • Effective Reimbursement Models: Aligning Incentives for Sustainable Value
  • Health IT- Performance Measurement-Meaningful Use: A Perfect Fit
  • Expanded Access to Providers Creates Value
  • Implementation of the Patient Centered Medical Home at the Community Level & Practice Transformation

"The medical home demonstrations and pilot projects have proven the value of the model," said Edwina Rogers, executive director of the PCPCC.  "Because every demonstration has its own parameters and unique characteristics, our focus for this meeting will be on the four underlying elements that are common success factors.  Making the PCMH scalable and applicable across practice types, organizations and geography is essential to its advancement as the premier model of care."

David Blumenthal, MD, MPP, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' national coordinator for health information technology, has been invited as the keynote speaker for the meeting. Blumenthal's office is charged with coordinating nationwide efforts to define the "meaningful use" of electronic health information and to advance the use of health information technology.

The PCPCC is organized and financed to provide better outcomes for patients, more efficient payment to physicians and better value, accountability and transparency to purchasers and consumers. Studies of the PCMH model show that it improves patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes. It also lowers health care costs by improving care coordination and communication between primary care physicians and their patients.
