  • Primary care practices transitioning to enhanced models of primary care require ongoing support to sustain their transformation efforts. Small and medium-sized practices in particular can benefit from shared resources facilitating care coordination and case management, use of data and technology, and ongoing practice improvement. This State Health Policy Briefing outlines key elements of a shared infrastructure to sustain primary care transformation, identifies policy levers available to federal and state policymakers to support these elements, and highlights relevant initiatives at both levels of government. It also summarizes key areas for policy improvement identified during a meeting of federal and state officials convened by NASHP.

  • Within multi-payer medical home initiatives, it is critical to develop and implement attribution and/or enrollment methodologies that assign participating patients to the practice most responsible for managing their care for two important reasons: the numbers of patients assigned to each practice influences the amount of supplemental PCMH payments paid to practices and which patients are assigned to the practice may affect the practice's performance on specific cost, quality, and utilization metrics.

    This brief, supported by The Commonwealth Fund, presents key considerations for states when developing assignment models: determining the degree of alignment across payers; establishing a means to collect and distribute patient assignment data; assessing the accuracy of the model; and ensuring sustainability. Key considerations presented in this brief were gleaned from challenges and lessons learned from multi-payer initiatives in Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Rhode Island.

  • Maine was one of six states selected to participate in NASHP's Medicaid-Safety Net Learning Collaborative. NASHP helped organize a series of web trainings for Maine’s health centers on using the Consumer Assessment for Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) patient satisfaction survey for quality improvement and staff training. CAHPS is being used in the state’s expansion of Patient-Centered Medical Home and accountable care strategies. This brief was supported by a cooperative agreement with the Health Resources and Services Administration.
