PCPCC's Strategic Plan, 2015-2018

Aligning & Engaging our Stakeholders to Drive Health System Transformation

The acknowledgement that primary care is central to a transformed U.S. health system has been critical in driving PCPCC’s mission and role, as well as articulating its value to our members and target audiences. PCPCC’s strategic direction is driven by environmental trends in the marketplace such as the testing and adoption of new payment models; the spread of primary care transformation; and uninformed and/or skeptical stakeholders.  The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model appears to be heading toward a ‘tipping point’ of widespread adoption, but there is broad variation in its definition, implementation, and evidence of its success. To address this, the goals and objectives of this strategic plan will build on PCPCC’s unique leadership position, and will continue to strengthen our role as an educator, convener, advocate, and go-to resource across a wide range of stakeholders. The PCPCC recognizes the extraordinary opportunity for the medical home to serve as a catalyst for health system transformation, and we stand ready to collaborate with partners, colleagues, and patients to make this transformation a reality as we implement the following four strategic priorities:

  • Promote increased primary care investment: Promoting increased investment in, and alternate payment models for, primary care from public and private payers as well as employers in order to improve access to patient centered primary care and reduce the avoidable health care costs driven by a fragmented, episodic-based, health care system.
  • Promote clinical transformation / integration with the neighborhood: Promoting clinical transformation and integration with the medical neighborhood and communities.  This includes integrating PCMH with behavioral and oral health, ACOs, and various community-based organizations and services.
  • Promote patient, consumer, employee/employer engagement: Engaging patients and families, consumers, employees, and the public in the advanced primary care or PCMH movement.
  • Support an interprofessional team-based health workforce: Developing the primary care workforce to embrace all members of the care team, including the patient and their family/caregiver.

Join us on our journey, as we work hand-in-hand with our five Stakeholder Centers, 60+ Executive Member organizations, and countless partners dedicated to achieving the Triple Aim of better care, improved health outcomes and lower health care costs!  Access the resources below to find out how the PCPCC plans to achieve these goals.
