Many forces are combining to create the perfect storm in primary care — a predicted PCP shortage, a preference for patient-centered models of care, rejection of traditional reimbursement models, increased quality and reporting demands and health IT edicts. With EHRs and the medical home model on the horizon, there's no better time for physician practices to take stock of current workflows and prepare for the new face of primary care. Physician Practice Transformation Toolkit: 29 Simple Ways to Succeed in Quality Care Management offers tested strategies, tools and processes from physician thought leaders who have guided practices through the transformation process.

Even without sophisticated technology, physician practices can make slight adjustments in culture and workflows that contribute to a sea change of improvements in practice efficiency, performance measurement and patient outcomes.

In this 44-page special report, physician thought leaders who have already retooled physician practices share 29 key strategies that can set the stage for a practice that can easily participate in and profit from emerging reimbursement strategies, including pay-for-performance programs and the patient-centered medical home.

Part of Physician Practice Redesign Essentials: A Transformation Roadmap, a four-volume series - Save 40% when you order the Practice Transformation Roadmap Series.

Providing a detailed roadmap to improved care management by physician practices are contributing presenters Lonnie E. Fuller Jr., M.D., medical director for the Pennsylvania Medicaid ACCESS Plus Primary Care Case Management Disease Management Program, John Michos, M.D., medical director of the Virginia Health Quality Center and Bruce Bagley, M.D., medical director of quality improvement with the American Academy of Family Physicians, which represents more than 100,000 physicians and medical students. Besides providing 29 pointers for practice transformation, these contributing presenters share details on:

  • Rewriting the roles of physician practice team members;
  • Understanding the psychology inherent in the practice culture;
  • Using existing resources to sharpen a practice's organizational skills;
  • Improving data collection — with or without an EHR;
  • A range of quality improvement tools — spreadsheetsheets, flow charts and templates — to help practices map and improve process flow;
  • Moving a transformed practice toward the medical home model;
  • Sustaining and measuring change in the practice environment;
and much, much more, including eight pages of related Q&A and six pages of relevant links and resources to support the 29 strategies offered in this special report.
