Rochester, Mich.—May 8, 2013 — Practice Transformation Institute (PTI), an organization providing the health care community with Continuing Medical Education and customized learning programs that improve patient health outcomes and the individual care delivery experience, will begin its next Moderate Care Management Program in July. An outgrowth of the patient centered home concept, Moderate Care Managers are generally PA-Cs, NPs, MSWs, Advanced Practice Nurses and RNs. Their role is to provide care management and coordination to adult and pediatric patients with mild to moderate illness, with the ultimate goal being to control and minimize the risks associated with chronic conditions while helping prevent the development of chronic conditions in at-risk patients.
 
The Moderate Care Management program is a series of four day-long classes held on July 23-24, July 31 and August 1. Classes are held at the Physician Training Center in Madison Heights. The curriculum content is appropriate for both a Moderate Care Manager and a Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Care Coordinator (medical assistant) and is comprised of activities, exercises and homework assignments based on real world experiences from a primary care practice. Topics of the program include:
 

  • Shared decision making
  • Transitions in care
  • Health literacy and cultural competency
  • Evidence-based guidelines
  • Model for improvement and quality improvement
  • Motivational interviewing

 
The cost of the program is $800 but a $300 discount is available by registering with promotional code SUMMER13. The registration link and a detailed curriculum description can be found on the PTI website at http://www.transformcoach.org/moderate-care-manager-program/.

Practice transformation realigns an office to become patient-centric. This is a tough job for a practice to accomplish as it takes a lot of time, effort and patience. All team members need to be engaged in the transformation process to make it a success. If a practice wanted to be formally recognized for their efforts, there are many PCMH recognition programs at the state and national levels.
 
One of the reasons that PTI recommends URAC’s Patient Centered Health Care Home (PCHCH) Practice Achievement Program is because it requires a comprehensive onsite review. Only through a physical onsite can a true culture change and transformation to a PCMH model of care be determined. This cannot be done by uploading paperwork to a website.
 
An onsite review:

  •  Determines behavior change
  •  Reveals adaptation to the PCMH philosophy
  •  Shows how your team has transformed
  •  Validates how your policies, procedures, processes and documents support the URAC PCHCH Standards and Elements
  • Establishes how the practice monitors quality improvement activities

 
The objectives of practice transformation are to become a better practice, a better online casinos in UK team and a cheerleader for your empowered and engaged patients. Don’t just go through the motions. Improving quality of care is the primary goal. Let that be your inspiration.
