CTC is partnering with the American College of Physicians to sponsor a statewide learning collaborative for primary care and specialist offices to enhance High-Value Care Coordination. The program will start on or about late January and continue through July 2019.
CTC's Quarterly Breakfast of Champions meeting is being held on February 8th at 7:30am. This is an important point in time for primary care in Rhode Island and for the CTC and PCMH-Kids program, and the involvement and input from all CTC practices is critical. Specifically, all clinical practice champions and practice site clinical and administrative leaders should attend.
Adult CTC practices will start reporting on the HEDIS 2019 controlling high blood pressure measure (blood pressure control defined as 140/90 for adults age 18-85) beginning 1/15/19 for timeframe 1/1/18-12/31/18. The previous measure (control defined as 140/90 for adults 18-59 or patient with diabetes 18-85; 150/90 for patients 60-85) has been retired effective 12/1/18.
The mission of the Care Transformation Collaborative is to lead the transformation of primary care in Rhode Island in the context of an integrated health care system; and to improve the quality of care, the patient experience of care, the affordability of care, and the health of the populations we serve.
