  • 2. Three Commonly Posed Questions:
    • Why does the ACP, with nearly equal numbers of general internists and subspecialty internists members, advocate for a system that appears more beneficial to primary care physicians?
    • How will my practice and my patients' experiences change?
    • Why should subspecialists support this model?
  • 3. PCMH/The Central Hub of Care
    • why is it needed
    • what must it provide
    • how might it be funded
    • where should it be

  • 13. Primary Care Associated with Decreased Costs
    • According to the Center for Evaluative Clinical Sciences at Dartmouth , for patients with severe chronic diseases, those who live U.S. states that relied more on primary care have:
      • Lower Medicare spending (inpatient reimbursements and Part B payments)
      • Lower resource inputs (hospital beds, ICU beds, total physician labor, primary care labor, and medical specialist labor)
      • Lower utilization rates (physician visits, days in ICUs, days in the hospital, and fewer patients seeing 10 or more physicians)
      • Better quality of care (fewer ICU deaths and a higher composite quality score

  • 17. HPPC Examined Health Care in the USA and Systems in 12 Other Countries
  • 18. Lesson : High performing systems encourage patients to be prudent purchasers and engage in healthy behaviors
    • Cost-sharing with co-payment schedules based on income can help restrain costs while assuring that poorer individuals have access
    • Incentives to encourage personal responsibility can be effective in influencing healthy behaviors, improved health outcomes and responsible utilization, without punishing people who fail to adopt recommended behaviors or lifestyles

  • 19. Lesson: High performing systems measure their own performance
    • Performance measures, financial incentives linked to quality, and active monitoring of performance are key elements of high performing systems
    Australia New Zealand United Kingdom
  • 20. Lesson : Primary care is the foundation of high performing delivery systems
    • Societal investment in medical education can help achieve a well-trained workforce with the right proportion of primary care physicians and specialists and is large enough to assure access
    • Investment in primary and preventive care can result in better health outcomes, reduce costs, and help assure an adequate supply of primary care physicians
    • These efforts can be enhanced by assuring that all residents have equitable access to a personal physician through a patient-centered medical home model

  • 21. Lesson : The best payment systems recognize the value of care coordinated by primary care physicians
    • Effective payment systems:
      • Provide adequate payment for primary care services
      • Create incentives for quality improvement and reporting
      • Recognize geographic or local payment differences
      • Provide incentives for care coordination
    Canada Denmark Germany United Kingdom Belgium United Kingdom Denmark Netherlands
  • 22. Lesson: High performing systems invest in HIT, have uniform billing, and lower administrative costs
    • Adoption of a uniform billing and electronic processing of claims improves efficiency and reduces administrative expenses
    • An inter-operable health information infrastructure can enable physicians to obtain instantaneous information at the point of medical decision-making and enhance electronic communications among treating health professionals

    • 1) “Bundled Care” Coordination Fee
      • Physician/non-physician work outside of face-to-face visits (e.g. email, telephone/group visits
          • -Promoting efficiency rather than volume-based care
      • System infrastructure (e.g. HIT)
          • -Encourage coordination of care
      • Risk adjusted
          • -Remove incentives to avoid complex or costly patients
  • 28. PCMH/Payment
    • 2) Visit based fee-for-service
      • Incentive to physician to see patients in office when appropriate
    • 3) Performance based component
      • Recognize achievement of quality and efficiency
  • 29. Potential New Payment Codes
    • Care plan oversight for specified condition
      • Communicate with provider of treatment
      • On-going review of patients’ medical status/labs
      • Care plan modification
    • Physician e-mail/telephonic consultations
    • Training and follow up of patient self management by physician/nurse
  • 30. Health Care Utilization & Primary Care
    • For population of 775,000, an increase from 35% to 40% primary care physicians could:
      • Reduce inpatient admissions by ~2500/year
        • At approximately $9000/admission = $23M
      • Reduce ED utilization by 15,000 visits/year
      • Reduce surgery by about 2500 cases/year

  • 31. Three Commonly Posed Questions:
    • Why does the ACP, with nearly equal numbers of general internists and subspecialty internists members, advocate for a system that appears more beneficial to primary care physicians?
    • How will my practice and my patients' experiences change?
    • Why should subspecialists support this model?
  • 32. Why is the ACP Advocating for Stronger Primary Care and the PCMH Model:
    • Extensively reviewed data from this country and abroad
    • Data compellingly suggest: Better outcomes and reduced costs by expanding primary care
  • 33. How Might the PCMH Benefit Primary Care Physicians:
    • Narrowing the earnings disparities
      • payment for care coordination
      • performance-based component to recognize quality and efficiency
      • visit-based fee-for-service payment to incentivize physicians to see patients in the office
    • More time to spend with chronically ill patients
    •  
  • 34. How Might the PCMH Benefit Patients:
    • Innovative scheduling systems to minimize delays in getting appointments,
    • Non-urgent medical advice by e-mail and telephone,
    • Same-day care with PCMH-based non-physicians for less complex patient issues,
    • Group teaching of patients with chronic diseases.
  • 35. How Might the PCMH Benefit Patients:
    • Time for coordinating care with family and other clinicians
    • Evidenced-based point-of-care support tools, and
    • Better health information technology (HIT) to efficiently coordinate all sources of the patient's care within the community and track quality and patient satisfaction measures to promote continuous improvement.
  • 36. How Might the PCMH Benefit Subspecialists?
    • May head a medical home
    • New billing codes
    • Fewer hassles
    • Better referrals
    • Improved quality of practice
    • Efficient spending
