PCPCC to Release Two New Publications at October Meeting
Date:10/6/2011

WASHINGTON, Oct. 6, 2011  /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two publications to be released Oct. 21 at the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) 5th Annual Summit will provide guidance to providers as they move forward with the patient centered medical home concept.

Core value, community connections: Care coordination in the medical home, a new report from the PCPCC, focuses on the theory and the praxis of care coordination in the medical home.

Yet, despite years of discussion and research, formalized care coordination is still in its early stages.

The report, sponsored by the PCPCC's Care Coordination Task Force, sheds light on this essential and evolving component of the patient centered medical home.

  1. Expert-authored articles on the definition, role and function of care coordination
  2. Case examples
  3. Summary of survey responses from select practices

The articles provide insights about the latest research on care coordination and offer a roadmap for new and emerging programs. The case examples feature a variety of programs at various stages in the care coordination journey.

Such examinations are at the heart of health care transformation. "Care coordination is not a cookie-cutter exercise for the patient; its implementation in programs across practice types, sizes and even practice sites within the same organization may be similarly varied. There is much to learn from what is being tried, tested and applied by those on the care coordination journey," said Paul Grundy, MD, MPH, PCPCC president. "Effective coordination of a patient's care
