Recruiting Physician Practices for a Medical Home Pilot

As more payors test the patient-centered medical home model of care, what are the pros and cons of participation for physician practices? Dr. Marjie Harbrecht, medical and executive director of Health TeamWorks, describes the financial middle ground that is likely to satisfy payors and providers who sign on for medical home pilots and offers some additional selection criteria her organization (formerly the Colorado Clinical Guidelines Collaborative) may use in the future.

Dr. Harbrecht examined how practices are recruited, selected and supported in medical home programs during Physician Practices in the Medical Home: Recruiting, Evaluating, Supporting and Measuring the Patient-Centered Team, a 45-minute webinar on May 19, 2010.
