Tytuł: The Future of US Healthcare by Barry Bittman, MD

Opis: It’s not surprising that every hospital and health institution in America is facing a substantial degree of uncertainty concerning the future of our nation’s healthcare. While the writing on the wall certainly includes Accountable Care Organizations, Bundled Payments, Insurance Exchanges, Core Measures, HCAHPS, Meaningful Use and Value-based Purchasing, the precise nature of that which will ultimately shape and enable our healthcare system to survive is at best, uncertain.

The real question is how can we improve and sustain our healthcare for future generations?

Highly politicized, the Affordable Care Act is poorly understood and widely debated. Yet what appears to be universally agreed upon is a series of remarkably straightforward goals referred to as the Triple Aim: improving the health of populations, improving the experience of care, and reducing per capita healthcare costs.

The pressure is building. Undoubtedly, something has to give.

Opis: Care Coordination: the key to sustainable healthcare

The challenges of ensuring sustainable high quality healthcare for our nation must not be underestimated. This highly complex system with current expenditures exceeding $2.6 trillion per year cannot continue in its present state.

The system is broken.

Our goal is to ensure the survival of high quality healthcare for our communities. Let’s begin by getting back to our roots — where our nation’s healthcare actually began. Hospitals were originally founded by community volunteers who were intent on taking care of their neighbors in need.

In a similar manner, our patient-centric strategy is based on what we refer to as a Community Care Network — a CCN. The CCN is actually a cost-effective extension of a community hospital that operates seamlessly with other local health agencies to support the ongoing needs of its patients through physician-directed coordinated care. Consider it an all-encompassing healthcare system without walls — or a patient centered medical home on steroids.

We actually like to refer to it as a patient-centered medical condominium.

Through a novel strategy that integrates student health coaches, our CCN’s mission is to provide the highest quality continuum of compassionate, outcomes-based, patient-centered, culturally-sensitive healthcare. Each patient’s choice is respected, and our quality measures are outcome, rather than process-based.

We adhere to a „no-discharge” policy. We will not abandon people in a sea of seemingly overwhelming healthcare challenges where they struggle to stay afloat. Our commitment extends beyond the confines of disease management — addressing socioeconomic, educational, psychosocial and behavioral factors, as well as each person’s adherence potential. Our quest is to identify and eliminate medical errors, care gaps and obstacles to receiving healthcare whenever possible.

Tytuł: Jeremy Hunt MP: Primary care and the role of the GP

Opis: Speaking at our Leadership Summit, Jeremy Hunt MP revealed his plans for improving primary care.

With a focus on primary and community care, the Secretary of State for Health called for a return to the idea of the family doctor, who would be a ‚champion for their patient for their patients rather than simply a gateway to „the system”‚.

He spoke of the introduction of a Chief Inspector of General Practice, who will work inside the CQC and help to drive up quality in primary care, and called on doctors and nurses to take the lead locally

Opis: We have been working with South Devon and Torbay Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) to find out more about their innovative primary care-based approaches to care. The CCG uses proactive case management and community virtual wards to identify people at risk of an unnecessary hospital admission in the next 12 months. The approach is now being introduced into the already successful integrated model of care to older people operating in Torbay.
