Care Initiative (CPCI)
Program Aims for Better Value in Healthcare
Several of the PriMed Physicians offices are taking part in a pilot program through the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. The program is called the Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative, and it’s one of seven pilots taking place across the country. CPCI is designed to test a model of improved access to quality healthcare at lower costs. This four-year program got underway in the fall 2012.
The Goal: Support Physician Offices to Provide High Quality Primary Care
By participating in this pilot initiative, PriMed Physicians is working with several insurance companies and the federal government to redesign how we take care of patients. You may have noticed some of these changes already as we started this program in 2013. PriMed has always been a pioneer in the area of measuring and improving the quality of the care that we provide to our patients. Through CPCI, this commitment continues with added services and staff to take care of you and your family.
Team-Based Care For Patients!
As healthcare changes in this country, PriMed is working to continually deliver quality care, in a coordinated way that brings the best value. We believe that working as a team with our patients is critical for this redesign to succeed. PriMed has implemented detail follow-up programs for patients outside of the traditional office visit. From surveying our patients about their experience to routinely calling patients to follow up on specific health conditions or health needs, PriMed Physicians has recommitted itself to patients and their families first!
Seven PriMed offices are participating in CPCI: Beavercreek Family Practice, Lincoln Park Internal Medicine, Patterson Woods Family Practice, Springboro Family Practice, Vandalia Family Practice and Woodbury Family Practice. A total of 75 practices, with 261 providers in Southwest Ohio were selected to take part.
