Webinar Held on CCBC's Innovative Solutions for Using HIT to Implement NCQA PCMH Model
June 1, 2012
On May 7, 2012 CCBC hosted a webinar for CIO, CMIOs, federal, state, and local government health agencies, trade associations, non-profit organizations, vendors, consultancies, hospital groups, and physician groups to discuss the challenges with PCMH implementation in community clinic settings. The webinar focused on CCBC’s work in using technology in a way to support care team functions while reducing staff and provider workloads. Specific discussion included CCBC and its clinical partners’ process of conducting a cross-walk of the NCQA 2011 PCMH standards with current workflows for each standard to inform SuccessEHS of system design limitations and to suggest enhancements that would facilitate adherence to medical home standards. Ultimately, SuccessEHS used those suggestions to enhance its system. The CCBC group also worked with SuccessEHS to include recommended PCMH workflows in a toolkit for other SuccessEHS clients. These collaborative activities helped CCBC clinical partners with their NCQA certification, and is preparing them for Meaningful Use attestations. The full presentation can be viewed here.
