A Close Look at Care Coordination within Patient-Centered Medical Homes

West Virginia's Experience

AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange

Thursday May 9, 2013 01:00 pm to 02:00 pm EDT

Who should coordinate care? How can care coordination be ensured for populations who transition frequently? What level of training is needed to be an effective care coordinator?

Join the AHRQ Health Care Innovations Exchange for an in-depth dialogue on issues related to care coordination in patient-centered medical homes. The Web event will begin with information about West Virginia’s innovative Medical Home and Transitions Initiatives. Presenters will share lessons learned in coordinating care for patients in rural locations as well as working with critical populations such as patients with both mental and physical health disorders and foster children with behavioral issues and asthma.

This Web event is the second in a series designed to share novel experiences in applying principles of accountable care organizations (ACOs) and patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) in practice.

Participants will explore questions such as:

  • What are the issues related to providing coordinated care to special populations and patients in rural locations? What are some ways to resolve them?
  • What are strategies for redesigning the workforce to support a team-based approach?
  • How do you define staffing roles related to care coordination?
  • What are issues and strategies related to training providers in population disease management?
