ABSTRACT

Using CTG and Akron Children’s Hospital Primary Care as a case study, this session will show how two organizations worked collaboratively to meet the requirements necessary for Akron Children’s to enter into the Ohio State Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) Medicaid Early Adoption program and gain NCQA PCMH Recognition. Together, they developed the processes and IT tools necessary to meet these requirements, as well as expand their quality program and develop an integrated risk stratification system to drive their new Care Management and Population Health departments. This session will demonstrate how, in a short time, Akron Children’s has successfully implemented multiple processes that have transformed how care is delivered and prepared them for the movement to value-based medicine.
