Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative: PCMH, Primary Care and HIT
August 18, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Marci Nielson, PhD, MPH, CEO, Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative. Dr. Nielsen discusses the latest evidence associating the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of primary care delivery with reductions in healthcare costs and improvements in quality of care. Additionally, she also touches on recent legislation which supports the much-needed transition from the current volume-driven, fee-for-service reimbursement model, to a more value-based system that rewards quality of care. Finally, she addresses the integral role of health information technology within the PCMH as well as current challenges for implementation and opportunities for future advancement.
