Webcast from GE Healthcare IT Solutions

     The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) and many private insurers are now offering financial rewards for becoming a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH). Unlike the traditional fee-for-service care delivery model which emphasizes transaction volume, this alternative emphasizes quality, integrated care and has shown promise in enhancing patient outcomes while reducing system-wide cost.

    This informative one-hour introduction to PCMH includes two expert speakers. Paige Cooke, Manager of External Relations for NCQA's Clinician Recognition Programs, provides an overview of the model. Shawn Tester, COO/CIO at Ammonoosuc Community Health Services and a GE Healthcare Centricity Practice Solution customer, illustrates how this alternative approach to medicine supported by today's advanced technology has helped the center deliver better value to the system.

    Learning objectives:

  • Defining characteristics and benefits of the PCMH.
  • How a practice becomes recognized as a PCMH. 
  • Why collaborative care is so important. 
  • The significance of a data-driven approach in initiatives to enhance patient outcomes.

Centricity Practice Solution 11 is PCMH prevalidated by NCQA to receive autocredit toward NCQA's PCMH 2011 scoring.
