MA PCMHI is a three-year, statewide, multi-payer demonstration with 45 participating practices. Sponsored by the Massachusetts Office of Health and Human Services, the MA PCMHI includes payment reform, technical assistance, and an evaluation of impact on quality, patient experience, and expenditures. This session will explore the lessons learned from the initiative’s impact on technical assistance, payment, and evaluation, as well as from its design, governance, and transformation approach.

After this presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the lessons learned from the key components of a medical home initiative: design, governance, transformation approach, technical assistance, payment model, and evaluation
  • Understand the impact of these lessons on the implementation of the initiative and the transformation of primary care practices
  • Utilize specific lessons in designing or implementing changes in their own medical home initiatives

Poster Session: Monday, March 10, 5:30-7:30 p.m.
