PRHI Coordinates Statewide Learning Network for PCMH Program

The PCMH Learning Network session in the QI2T Center.

As part of coordinating a statewide Learning Network for the primary care practices in the Medicaid HealthChoices Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program, the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI) held two regional sessions in April, one in the QI2T Center in Downtown Pittsburgh for Western Pennsylvania and the other in Scranton for Northeastern Pennsylvania.

PRHI is working with the HealthChoices Managed Care Organizations (MCO) to facilitate the quarterly sessions.

PCMH is an approach that provides comprehensive primary care for a patient. The quarterly learning collaborative sessions include clinician champions and practice manager champions and representatives from the Medicaid MCOs

The regional sessions in April focused on screening for social determinants of health (SDOH), including pharmacy resources in the PCMH's community-based care management teams, and educating patients about the PCMH program and their care management teams.

The Health Federation of Philadelphia (HFP), PRHI's partner in the effort, will run the May programs in the Lehigh/Capital area and the Southeast.
