Our children are not the only ones back in school this month. A new learning collaborative that will prep providers at 12 New York City community health centers to meet standards for the patient-centered medical home and meaningful use of health IT, making them eligible for billions of dollars in state and federal incentives is featured in this week’s Healthcare Business Weekly Update. Through a mix of classroom-style learning, virtual learning tools and one-on-one coaching, the collaborative hopes to bring providers up to speed on key patient-centered initiatives and high-tech tools while improving healthcare care delivery and quality in the process.

In another group effort, the Iowa Collaborative Safety Net Provider Network has fashioned a virtual medical home in which local primary care providers work with other community-based organizations to deliver a full continuum of healthcare services to underserved populations. Two members of Iowa’s virtual medical home will share lessons learned from the collaborative process during a webinar this Thursday.
