PCPCC's Edwina Rogers Leads Panel at World Health Care Congress
Date:5/7/2009

Patient centered medical home will be in focus at Fifth Annual World Health Care Congress in Brussels, Belgium May 13-14

WASHINGTON, May 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Edwina Rogers, executive director of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC), will lead an international panel of experts in patient centered care at the Fifth Annual World Health Care Congress, slated for May 13-14 in Brussels, Belgium.

The PCPCC is a Washington, D.C.-based collaboration of more than 400 members representing major employers, consumer groups, patient quality organizations, health plans, labor unions, hospitals, physicians and other stakeholders working together to develop and advance the patient centered medical home (PCMH). The PCMH movement aims to partner every American with a primary health care provider who is responsible and accountable for ongoing care and care coordination.

Rogers will lead a panel entitled "Patient-Centered Care: How Continual Care Management with the Right Tools Leads to Better Health Outcomes." The panel will explore implementation of the PCMH concept as a coordinated care management effort to promote health and wellness, improve outcomes and health care delivery. Panel participants will also discuss the fundamental shift in the patient-primary care provider relationship that patient centered care requires as patients and their families become more engaged in the care process.

Experts joining Rogers on the panel are Gary Belfield, director of commissioning for the Department of Health, United Kingdom; Herbert Bunz, MD, associate partner, health telematic infrastructures, security and privacy for IBM, Germany; Michael Klein, MD, vice president of operations for Healthways International GmbH, Germany; and Melanie Samson, project officer for the National Cancer Institute, France.

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 clinicians and their patients.
