TransforMED Selects 90 Primary Care Practices in 65 U.S. Cities as Participants in Three-Year, Patient-Centered Medical Neighborhood Pilot Project
Date:7/16/2013

Leawood, KS (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

A total of 90 primary care practices allied with 15 health systems in 65 cities across the country have joined a federally supported health care innovation award project of the patient-centered medical neighborhood (PCMN) care model, awardee and national program convener TransforMED announced today.

Participating practices will pilot test TransforMED’s approach to delivering better health, better health care and lower costs using the PCMN model. The PCMN concept connects patient-centered medical home (PCMH) primary care practices with other community-based health care providers to create a more efficient, coordinated health care delivery network that improves care at a lower cost.

TransforMED, a nonprofit subsidiary of the American Academy of Family Physicians, is leading the nationwide PCMN project funded by a three-year, $20.75 million award by the CMS Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (Innovation Center). Joining TransforMED, an expert in PCMH transformation and PCMN development, are project affiliates VHA Inc., a network of not-for-profit hospitals based in Irving, Texas; Phytel, a provider of automated population health management technology based in Dallas; and Cobalt Talon, an analytics services company based in Kansas City, Mo.

Project affiliates will work to support health care providers in each of the 90 participating practices toward the PCMN development project’s quest for improved health outcomes, improved quality of care and reduced costs. TransforMED facilitators will meet with practice leaders in coming months to understand their current processes and identify areas of improvement in the following four areas to attain stated year-three goals:
•Costs. Reduce overall health care costs for Medicare and Medicaid beneficiaries by 4 percent, or $49.5 million, by 2015
•Health. Improve the health of the eligible population as demonstrated
