This Friday, December 12, we welcome Charles MacLean,
MD, Associate Professor of Medicine. We will meet in the conference room
at 371 Pearl Street at noon. Please see Dr. MacLean's note
The Vermont Blueprint for Health is a
public-private initiative to implement a series of interventions based on the
Chronic Care Model to improve the health of the population, particularly for
those with chronic health conditions. The Patient Centered Medical
Home-Community Care Team Pilot (PCMH pilot) is one of these interventions, and
includes: 1) incentive payments to practices for the reorganization of primary
care along the PCMH scale developed by NCQA, and 2) deployment of a
multidisciplinary Community Care Team (CCT) to expand the scope of services
easily accessible by patients.
Thank you for taking the time to review this
document for discussion on December 12, 2008. The goals of this session will be:
our colleagues and students with the design of the project;
To seek input on
opportunities for collaboration.
I would ask you to read through the outline
prior to the December 12 seminar and come with research questions that you think
are feasible, interesting, novel, ethical and relevant.
