Innovations to share Practice Assessment Survey Integrated practice supports Practice payments and PIA Multidisciplinary grants Community survey of patients Community level gaps analysis Community engagement Primary care clinic with distribution focus Patient engagement Definition of attachment Patient confirmation process – primary care provider 3
Evaluating the Issue: Unattached Patients Prince George Estimated unattached patient population: 15,000 variation according to life circumstance and chronic conditions White Rock–South Surrey 5 to 35% of population unattached: Hospital discharges: 5-20% ER: 10-35% Cowichan Valley 5% (4,143) Unattached Patients 40% (33,148) Poorly Attached Patients 4
Attachment Strategies: Enhancing capacity of the local primary care system: Practice coaching Recruitment and locum coverage Making coordination of care easier – technology, Integration Recognizing and rewarding longitudinal care provision Creating multidisciplinary care models Stand-alone clinics with assessment and distribution functions In-practice enhancement of non-physician providers Enabling access to phychiatrist, pharmacist, other providers Improving health of population overall to reduce demand Community-level collaboration with public health, municipalities 5
