Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative Convenes Annual Summit
Date:9/16/2010

WASHINGTON, Sept. 16 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Policymakers and market leaders looking for ways to improve efficiency and quality in health care delivery are looking to the medical home to advance quickly and fulfill its promise. Advocates for this patient-centered model of care will converge on Washington, DC, Oct. 21, 2010 to examine the evidence and make the case for a fundamentally improved means to deliver health care with better quality outcomes and higher patient satisfaction at a lower cost.

"Exhibiting the Evidence: Advance of the Patient Centered Medical Home" is the theme of the fourth annual Summit of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC), the coalition of more than 700 organizations representing the nation's business leaders, consumers, primary care physicians and other health care stakeholders. The Summit will be held at the Ronald Reagan International Trade Center from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and will convene hundreds of health care stakeholders united around the Summit's goal to rapidly advance the PCMH model.

"Federal agencies are mobilizing to advance learning about new models of care through demonstration projects and pilots that can deliver results and be quickly expanded," said Edwina Rogers, executive director of the PCPCC. "The PCMH leverages team-based care to improve patients' access to care and enhance care coordination. In the PCMH, patients select a primary care clinician who partners with them and puts them in the center of care. Supporting that model will require changes in how we pay for care, and adoption of health technology tools that ensure the right information is available to the right provider at the point of care."

During the Summit, experts from across the country will present new findings and examine the evidence for the PCMH, from reduced emergency room visits and re-hospitalizations to improved patient and physician satisfaction. Panel topics for the Summit will focus discussion on regulatory implementation of new models of care; standards-setting and recognition of the medical home; advancing primary care models; success stories and "lessons learned" from the field; and successful health information technology implementation in coordination with the medical home.

Panel speakers for the PCPCC Summit include:
