PCMH-Neighbor Concept Builds on Patient-Centered Medical Home Momentum

Specialists working day to day with primary care medical homes will move more easily into the role of patient-centered medical home neighbor (PCMH-N) than those who have not, notes Robert Krebbs, WellPoint’s director of payment innovation. WellPoint recently launched a medical neighborhood pilot for three specialties with clear care coordination alignment opportunities with primary care medical homes.

The neighborhood model requires education on the part of specialists and patients who have not been part of integrated delivery systems so they can better benefit from the new patient-centered medical world, Krebbs explains in this audio interview.

Robert Krebbs shared the key components of WellPoint’s Enhanced Personal Health Care for specialty care program during a May 15, 2014 webinar, Care Compacts: Forming the Foundation of Care Teams with PCPs and Specialists, a 45-minute program sponsored by The Healthcare Intelligence Network.
