On May 18, 2016, HMA Information Services hosted the webinar, “Patient-Centered Medical Home Transformation: The Right Thing to Do for Patients and for Your Organization.”
Physician practices and clinics have good reason to transform themselves into Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH). While many of the care coordination services provided by PCMHs aren’t currently reimbursed, a growing number of payers are looking to reward providers for these services – and providers need to be ready to benefit from all payment opportunities. More importantly, PCMH transformation is the right thing to do for patients. PCMHs are positioned to provide the highest quality care to members, with improved outcomes, prevention and patient satisfaction. Even if there isn’t an immediate financial reward, practices benefit strategically by positioning themselves as care leaders in the local community and solidifying relationships with other healthcare institutions.
During this webinar, HMA experts Linda Follenweider and Jodi Bitterman outlined the steps physician practices must take to transform into PCMHs and provided a list of lessons learned from various transformations to date. Listen to the recording and:
- Understand the resource requirements necessary for implementing a PCMH transformation and find out about cost-effective tools, technologies and transformation strategies.
- Learn how to best position your practice to benefit from emerging value-based payment models.
- Obtain HMA’s list of 10 lessons learned from PCMH transformations, including a run-down of common challenges and pitfalls.
- Understand the importance of involving the “C-Suite” in any transformation initiatives and learn how to get their support and buy-in.
