How will they integrate with SHIP Cohort Clinics?
SHIP clinics will work with the state evaluation team on data collection methods to obtain feedback on the status of PCMH transformation process. Data collection efforts are planned to interface with clinic workflows and place minimal time and effort on clinic staff. They will connect with Quality Improvement Specialists, Office Managers, Care Coordinators, Idaho Health Coalition Members, and clinic-suggested patients in each cohort.
Clinic and Patient Benefits for Participation in the Evaluation
Clinics: Patient participation satisfies NCQA 2014 PCMH Standard 6, Element C, Factor 4 and the annual evaluation reports will be shared with all participating clinics. Additionally, WWAMI and the State Evaluation team are coordinating administrative and curriculum resources to develop Continuing Education Units (CEUs) opportunities for SHIP clinics on value-based healthcare.
There is also potential NCQA April 2017 Quality Improvement Competency A 04 (core) satisfaction. “…monitors patient experience through qualitative methods”
Patients: Patients will be reimbursed for their time and travel.
