What’s Happening at MCOL | Patient Centered Medical Homes: Outcomes & Cost Research

By Claire Thayer, November 5, 2012

Medical Homes have been increasingly embraced by stakeholders as a key component of 21st century health care delivery. The challenge now, is to demonstrate the validity of quality and value from PCHM care being delivered.  HealthCore's study of Empire BlueCross BlueShield PCMH pilots, including Westchester-based WestMed Medical Group, provides significant evidence that medical homes better managed their patients’ diseases, ordered fewer high-cost imaging tests, reduced patient emergency room visits and hospitalizations and reduced costs of care for patients overall.

On Thursday, this week, please join Healthcore's Director of Research Operations Andrea DeVries, PhD, Empire BlueCross Blue Shield's Chief Medical Officer Scott Breidbart, M.D., and Dr. Barney Newman, Medical Director for WESTMED Medical Group for this important event co-sponsored by Medical Home News, as they share detailed results from their hallmark PCMH research findings and experiences. 

We hope you’ll join us!
