For many providers, passion drives the desire to implement person-centered practices in their community. For others, the driver may not be passion, but the need to comply with the new regulatory requirements imposed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). We know that passion alone will not assure sustainable practices and certainly we have all seen attempts at regulatory compliance which are short lived, more of a band aid than a cure. Pioneer Network has long supported the need to create processes and systems to support passion and provide the foundation needed to sustain person-centered practices. In this session, we will explore some foundational practices that can support your passion and drive the implementation and sustainability of person-centered practices. We will identify resources to help build and develop the processes and systems, discuss how to use quality assurance performance improvement (QAPI) to help in the development and sustainability of the person-centered practices, and discuss the role of the medical director in assuring that person-centered practices are the standard in the community.
Identify practices that are based on a medical model and describe ways to replace them with person-centered practices as required by CMS and consumers.
Explain how to develop processes and systems that will support the sustainability of person-centered practices.
Implement strategies within QAPI to implement PCC practices in a systematic way to ensure sustainability.
Find resources to help in the development of processes and systems supporting person-centered practices and recognize how medical practitioners can serve as leaders in this change effort.
