Lessons Learned from Implementing the UChicago Comprehensive Care Physician (CCP) Model

Great Lakes Practice Transformation Network is pleased to welcome David Meltzer, MD, PhD, and Emily Perish, MPP, both of The University of Chicago for a webinar entitled, “Lessons Learned from Implementing the UChicago Comprehensive Care Physician (CCP) Model.” The study, based on the belief that relationships between patients and doctors is important for health, paired patients with the same physicians for both primary care needs and hospitalizations. After reviewing preliminary study results, researchers found the CCP model was preferred by patients and also reduced costs and hospitalizations.

Join Emily and Dr. Meltzer for a discussion on implementing the CCP model, overcoming challenges, and reflecting on study findings. They will also share their experiences with 2018 Comprehensive Care Learning Collaborative (CCLC), a forum for discussing the treatment of patients at increased risk of hospitalization. The program focused on improving care while meeting TCPI milestones and MIPS program Improvement activity requirements. A Q&A session will follow the presentation.

Learning Objectives:

– Understanding of the rationale, operations, findings and dissemination plan for the UChicago Comprehensive Care Physician (CCP) model

– Understanding of the 2018 Comprehensive Care Learning Collaborative (CCLC) content, efficacy and plans for the 2019 CCLC
