The chapter’s Medical Home Initiative, under the direction of Medical Director and Renee Turchi, MD, MPH (co-author of the Patient- and Family-Centered Care Coordination policy statement), works hand in hand with practices across the commonwealth to train their staff on the principles of care coordination. By offering in-person technical assistance to practices, the MHI practice coordinators are able to help practices implement care coordination. In addition to the in-office training, there are also webinars, regional learning collaboratives, and state-wide meetings to enhance the efforts of the practice. Practices are also eligible to apply for a care coordination mini-grant, which will help them fund their efforts.
There is always room for more practices to get involved in the program. If you are interested in finding out more about the Medical Home Initiative, please reach out to us via the "Contact Us" tab!
