Greater Cincinnati Beacon Community PCMH Collaborative

Drs. DeWalt and Scoville will work closely with the Health Improvement Collaborative (HIC) team to implement a PCMH and diabetes performance improvement learning collaborative. They will participate in the faculty meetings and advise the staff at HIC. They will participate in the learning sessions and advise the practices and the coaches on diabetes improvement strategies. They will also help to plan the learning sessions and give lectures as needed to add content to the collaborative. They will also work with HIC on the measurement strategy and work with HealthBridge to integrate performance measurement into their registry and information technology solutions. Dr. Horowitz will advise Drs. DeWalt and Scoville as needed and provide direct consultation to HIC should they desire to address Maintenance of Certification with their improvement program.
