The Clinical Strategy Committee provides an important multi-payer opportunity for systems of care, providers and health plans to learn from each other on ways to advance primary care in Rhode Island. Below are key topics that were discussed in September and October:
Rhode Island is one of 18 regions selected by Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) innovation project. The CPC+ initiative is an advanced primary care medical home model that offers an innovative payment structure to support delivery of comprehensive primary care.
On October 24 at the Crown Plaza in Warwick, 400 primary care practice leaders, care team members, stakeholders, and vendors attended the CTC-RI 2019 Annual Conference, "Advancing Integrated Primary Care: Innovations at Work."
CTC-RI hosted its quarterly IBH Committee meeting on Behavioral Health Telemedicine with Pamela Hoffman from Lifespan presenting on its Pediatric Behavioral Health Program, CODAC and Thundermist presenting on its Telehealth Collaboration for Opioid Treatment Program.
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.
