Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative Releases New Guidelines for Health Care Purchasers
Date:4/16/2008

Framework includes sample RFI language, advantages of buying care that reflects patient centered medical home concept

WASHINGTON, April 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC), a coalition representing the country's national business leaders, policymakers and 330,000 primary care physicians, today introduced a framework for health care purchasers to buy health care that reflects the patient centered medical home (PCMH) philosophy. 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. The PCMH model saved one state Medicaid program between $118-130 million in a single year according to program analysis by Mercer Government Human Services Consulting. Other studies show the model improves patient satisfaction and clinical outcomes.

A critical chapter of the organization's Employer Purchaser Guide was released today in conjunction with the PCPCC's Stakeholders Working Meeting, held at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, DC. The chapter illuminates six strategies purchasers can use to advance the PCMH model:

Participate in a regional pilot(s) supported by PCPCC;Incorporate PCMH into insurer procurement and performance assessment activity;Align payment strategy with PCPCC guiding principles;Build coalitions in support of the PCMH;Engage consumers; andIntegrate PCMH into other corporate health strategies.

The purchaser guidelines are part of the overall efforts of one of the PCPCC's working groups, the Center for Benefits Redesign and Implementation, to produce a document to introduce purchasers to the history and philosophy of the PCMH. When complete, the Employer Purchaser Guide will define the concept, make a case for the employer's role in support of the medical home, describe how employers can take action now, and provide the tools to purchas
