Collaborative Principles • The Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative is a coalition of major employers, consumer groups, patient quality organizations, health plans, labor unions, hospitals, clinicians and many others who have joined together to develop and advance the patient centered medical home. The Collaborative believes that, if implemented, the patient centered medical home will improve the health of patients and the viability of the health care delivery system. In order to accomplish our goal, employers, consumers, patients, clinicians and payers have agreed that it is essential to support a better model of compensating clinicians. • Compensation under the Patient-Centered Medical Home model would incorporate enhanced access and communication, improve coordination of care, rewards for higher value, expand administrative and quality innovations and promote active patient and family involvement. The Patient-Centered Medical Home model will also engage patients and their families in positive ongoing relationships with their clinicians. Further, the Patient-Centered Medical Home will improve the quality of care delivered and help control the unsustainable rising costs of healthcare for both individuals and plan-sponsors. • If you agree, please visit us at www.pcpcc.net and join today!

TODAY’S CARE MEDICAL HOME CARE My patients are those who make appointments to see me Our patients are those who are registered in our medical home Patients’ chief complaints or reasons for visit determines care We systematically assess all our patients’ health needs to plan care Care is determined by today’s problem and time available today Care is determined by a proactive plan to meet patient needs without visits Care varies by scheduled time and memory or skill of the doctor Care is standardized according to evidence-based guidelines Patients are responsible for coordinating their own care A prepared team of professionals coordinates all patients’ care I know I deliver high quality care because I’m well trained We measure our quality and make rapid changes to improve it Acute care is delivered in the next available appointment and walk-ins Acute care is delivered by open access and non-visit contacts It’s up to the patient to tell us what happened to them We track tests & consultations, and follow-up after ED & hospital Clinic operations center on meeting the doctor’s needs A multidisciplinary team works at the top of our licenses to serve patients Slide from Daniel Duffy MD School of Community Medicine Tulsa Oklahoma
PCPCC Payment Model (May 2007) The Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative recommends a three-part payment methodology, Including: A) A monthly care coordination payment for the physician’s work that falls outside of a face-to face visit and for the health information technologies needed to achieve better outcomes, B) A visit-based fee-for-service component that is recognized for services that are currently paid under the present fee-for-service payment system, and C) A performance-based component that recognizes achievement of service, patient centeredness, quality and efficiency goals.
Barbara Starfield of Johns Hopkins University Within the United States, adults with a primary care physician rather than a specialist had 33 percent lower costs of care and were 19 percent less likely to die. In both England and the United States, each additional primary care physician per 10,000 persons is associated with a decrease in mortality rate of 3 to 10 percent. • In the United States, an increase of just one primary care physician is associated with 1.44 fewer deaths per 10,000 persons. A medical home can reduce or even eliminate racial and ethnic disparities in access and quality for insured persons. Commonwealth Fund has reported: Denmark has organized its entire health care system around patient-centered medical homes, achieving the highest patient satisfaction ratings in the world. Denmark has among the lowest per capita health expenditures and highest primary care rankings. Center for Evaluative Clinical Sciences at Dartmouth, states in the US relying more on primary care have: lower Medicare spending, lower resource inputs, lower utilization, and better qualityof care.

Inclusion of the Medical Home Concept in Health Reform Efforts Employer Trade Associations Executive Branch Think Tanks The Patient-Centered Medical Home Plans developed by Congressional Representatives
Baucus- Health Care Reform Proposal (November 2008) • Expanding Medicare’s role in testing the medical home model — in which practitioners are paid explicitly for comprehensive care management services… • Medical home expansions in Medicare should focus only on providers who are committed to ensuring that patients truly receive the primary care and care management services... • Providers seeking to participate in a Medicare medical home… should meet a set of stringent service and capacity criteria in order to qualify… and be willing to have additional payments • based in part on the quality of care they deliver.
Other Legislative Initiatives • Senator Durbin (D-IL) and Senator Burr (R-NC) are working together on Patient Centered Medical Home Legislation • The Healthy Americans Act, sponsored by Senator Rob Wyden (D-Oregon) and Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah) is the first bipartisan health reform proposal in more than a decade to guarantee affordable, healthcare quality for all and includes PCMH. • Senator Baucus’ White Paper is very favorable for Medical Homes. • Economic Stimulus Package includes funding for Health IT infrastructure and primary care workforce shortages. • North Carolina received a 646 waiver to take the Patient Centered Medical Home program to all of Medicare, with estimated savings by the CBO of $1.4 billion.
