View this replay of the webinar "Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) – How Health IT Supports the CMS CPC+ Change Package" with Donna Daniel, PhD, Senior Program Director, Clinical Quality Research, and Christina Berg, Clinical Sales Consultant at IBM Watson Health.
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has announced a new, advanced primary care medical home model called Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+).
The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ (CMS) recent announcement to overhaul primary care with the new Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) program has created buzz in the healthcare sector. CPC+ aims to provide patients with affordable and higher quality care while providing support, tools and linkages allowing them to take a proactive role in their own health.
As the CPC+ program requires the provision of claims-based cost and utilization data at the practice and patient-level, IBM Watson Health™ tools and solutions are primed to manage claims-based data and support opportunities for improving utilization.
CMS used feedback and analysis of the original CPC initiative to create the CPC+ Theory of Action and Driver Diagram (CPC initiative). In addition to serving as the logic model for value-based transformation, this diagram outlines the five core functions that will be the roadmap toward a whole-person, patient-centered, comprehensive primary care delivery model.
Many healthcare organizations have questions about the CPC+ program, and practices must submit their applications to participate by September 15, 2016, so this post is the first of a three-part series dedicated to understanding CPC+.
Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) were created to provide financial incentives for providers to control costs and improve the quality of care. As they continue to advance, it is important for both providers and payers to ensure that risk is being appropriately shared between the two.
In a continued effort to support health care's triple aim, the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) model is scheduled to begin in January 2017. This advanced primary care medical home model uses regionally-based multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation to further propel primary care.
