National Academy of Medicine Discussion Paper 

PFCCpartners is proud to have participated on the Scientific Advisory Panel & Co Authored a new National Academy of Medicine Discussion Paper entitled “Harnessing Evidence and Experience to Change Culture: A Guiding Framework for Patient and Family Engaged Care“.
This paper is the result of over a year of collaborative work performed under the auspices of the National Academy of Medicine’s Care Culture and Decision-Making Innovation Collaborative and led by Planetree. In the paper, the co-authors assert that a cultural shift to “patient and family engaged care” is an essential driver to achieving the Quadruple Aim outcomes of better culture, better care, better health, and lower costs, and lay out a novel Guiding Framework for creating and sustaining a culture of patient and family engaged care that is grounded in both scientific evidence and the lived experience of patients, their care partners, practitioners, and health system leaders.

American College of Physicians (ACP) Patient Education Resources

When first diagnosed with a chronic condition, such as diabetes, heart disease, or rheumatoid arthritis, patients can often feel frightened or overwhelmed.  ACP has produced a series of patient education resources to support patient management of common issues.  These resources also help patients ask important questions to their health care professional and reinforce the information provided during a visit.

Strategic Innovation Engine

Are you working to transform health care? CMS’ Quality Improvement Organization (QIO) program recently established the Stategic Innovation Engine (SIE) to advance health care quality. Its mission is to identify, evaluate and spread proven innovations to achieve the three-part aim of better care, healthier people/communities, and smarter spending.

If your organization has created or adapted an innovative practice in any of these five topics that has improved patient care, the SIE wants to hear from you.

  • Managing multiple chronic conditions
  • Engaging patients and families as active members of the care team
  • Coordinating care within and across settings
  • Streamlining patient flow
  • Integrating behavioral health into care

Submit an application for consideration of your practice to be spread within the health care community. You’ll receive public recognition for the work you’ve done and broad dissemination of your practice through SIE Communications channels to foster spread throughout the health care community.  We will brand the practice with the organization’s name and provide a web badge acknowledging its selection as an SIE-approved practice.

Stewarding Regional Health Transformation – A Guide for Changemakers

Transforming our regional health means whole-scale redesign and integration of all the forces that support health and wellbeing. To truly redesign local systems for radically better health, care, and economic prosperity in their regions, members of collaborative leadership teams must establish high aspirations and steward a change effort through distinct phases of transformation. They must create the long-term structures for active engagement of all the relevant participants—including residents—in stewarding shared resources. This Stewardship Guide is meant to help individual leaders and multisector collaborations create and sustain successful stewardship structures and change processes to lead regional transformation. It is meant for those who are looking to redesign their systems of health for radically better performance—creating and achieving a transformed system that will help individuals, families, and neighborhoods thrive with better health, lower costs, increased access to care, and improved equity and productivity for all.
