PCMH Outcomes and Cost Research: Important New Medical Home Findings
Medical Homes, during the past several years, have been increasingly embraced by stakeholders as a key component of 21st century health care delivery. The challenge now, is to demonstrate the validity of quality and value from PCHM care being delivered.

Patient-centered medical homes - physician practices that use cross-disciplinary teams of professionals who put the patient at the center of the health care delivery system - focus on improving outcomes while reducing costs associated with inconsistent, duplicate or fragmented care. Typically, PCMH practices are open beyond traditional office hours and use technology to be more proactive in managing and communicating with their patients.

HealthCore Inc., a clinical outcomes research company, has concluded comprehensive PCMH studies that have incorporated Healthcare Effectiveness and Data Information Set measures, utilization and laboratory data, in combination with outcomes and cost data.

HealthCore's study of Empire BlueCross BlueShield PCMH pilots including Westchester-based WestMed Medical Group provides significant evidence that medical homes better managed their patientsí diseases, ordered fewer high-cost imaging tests, reduced patient emergency room visits and hospitalizations and reduced costs of care for patients overall.

On Thursday, November 8th, 2012, join Healthcore's Director of Research Operations Andrea DeVries, PhD, Empire BlueCross Blue Shield's Chief Medical Officer Scott Breidbart, M.D., and Dr. Barney Newman, Medical Director for WESTMED Medical Group for this important event co-sponsored by Medical Home News, as they share detailed results from their hallmark PCMH research findings and experiences.
