HealthBreak | Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC+)

May 2, 2017
Health care is changing, and one of the biggest issues is the transition from a model built around taking care of sick people, to a model built around keeping people healthy. One way Providence St. Patrick Hospital in Missoula, Montana is making the change is by using Comprehensive Primary Care Plus - known as CPC+. "It's a new government program that is helping us develop value-based care," says Samer Khodor, MD - Regional Chief Physician Executive of Ambulatory Care. "It's important, because it builds upon a patient-centered model, where we involve patients and families in the decision making process." CPC+ does this by utilizing Care Managers to coordinate patient care from hospital to home. "In the past, when a patient was discharged from the hospital, they had a lot of unknowns and they had to coordinate care themselves," Dr. Khodor explains. "With CPC+, our care managers will reach out to patients and their families, help them coordinate care, make follow-up appointments and get necessary referrals. It's going to provide patients and families better access and coordination to health care services." "We truly believe in the Triple Aim: to improve the patient care experience, improve the community's health and reduce per-capita cost," Dr. Khodor continues. "This program is a step in the right direction." For more information, visit http://montana.providence.org
