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+.
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.
