PCPCH – How to get there: Lay the foundation Engaged Leadership Quality Improvement Strategy Build Relationships Empanelment Continuous, Team-Based Healing Relationships Change Care Delivery Patient-Centered Interactions Organized, Evidence-Based Care Reduce Barriers to Care Enhanced Access Care Coordination

Barriers to PCPCH transformation Knowledge Time Culture Change Financial Resources Staff Shortages
What do we need from a CCO to continue as a highly functioning PCPCH? Reliable Payment Structure PMPM Payments (stratified based on PCPCH functionality) Additional payments for quality outcomes. Data Standardization Standard Monthly Scorecard with Universal Benchmarks Community-Specific Scorecard Based on local QI Projects
What do we need from a CCO continued… Technical Assistance Quality Improvement Training Team Training starting with Communication Skills: motivational interviewing, Team STEPPS, etc. Educational Assistance Financial support for community education. Outside resources to train local people (ex. Living Well Classes). Ongoing training for behavioral health specialists and community health workers. Survey Assistance Cover cost of CAHPS survey. Work with communities to measure patient and care team engagement.
We are proud to be a PATIENT CENTERED Primary Care Home! In our little corner of Oregon, we are taking it one patient at a time and we are positively impacting those patients lives. We cant yet prove that our impact is community-wide, but we are improving patient engagement and education. The only way we can stem the tide of health care spending AND improve the health of our communities is to be champions for all patients, one patient at a time. HOWEVER, we cant keep doing this work without a system that supports us. If we build the system around what each patient needs, we will move in the right direction. We need a liaison present as part of our care team and network to gain an understanding of our community, our practice, and most importantly, our patients.
A Transformative Innovation for CCOs: Practice Enhancement Coordinator: Like a member of a CCT from the insurance company! Know and understand each community. Know the individual practices within each community. Help practices move along the continuum of PCPCH. Ensure that CCO policies support PCPCH success. Help build trust among providers in each community. Focus CCO attention and resources on key areas to truly improve community health.
