A website developed as a resource for practice facilitators as they work with practices to improve care quality, using the principles set out in the Safety Net Medical Initiative's Framework for Practice Transformation.
The Safety Net Medical Home Initiative (SNMHI) was a national Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) demonstration to guide 65 primary care safety net sites to become high-performing medical homes and improve quality, efficiency and patient experience.
This resource page from the California Improvement Network (CIN), launched in June 2018, consists of a short list of relevant and timely resources to help health care organizations in this complex endeavor, regardless of the organization’s history of effort and investment.
This toolkit was created for clinics, practices, and health systems focused on improving care coordination by transforming the way they manage patient referrals and transitions. Providing coordinated care is an essential feature of any patient-centered medical home (PCMH)— and one that can be challenging to implement. This toolkit was developed to make it easier.
Although high performing primary care practices vary in size, resources, staffing, and populations served they exhibit surprising similarity in how they provide high quality, accessible, and patient-centered health care.
While we know a lot about practices that stimulate new ideas, innovation teams often struggle to apply them. Why? Because people’s biases and entrenched behaviors get in the way. In this article a Darden professor explains how design thinking helps people overcome this problem and unleash their creativity.
