From instructing Transition Management Teams to coaching our partners to utilize the Patient Activation Measure® (PAM®) survey, each OneCity Health initiative has been rooted in engaging our PPS partners with educational materials and technical assistance, which helps our partners:
- Improve access to care and the quality of service we deliver to patients. For example, OneCity Health is helping partners identify disparities and gaps in service delivery that will ultimately inform training on delivering equitable care, while our Patient-Centered Medical Home efforts are geared toward strengthening teams in primary care
- Achieve OneCity Health implementation goals. For example, we’ve kicked off GSI training sessions and will soon begin Physician Asthma Care Education (PACE) trainings to support the asthma home-based self-management project
These are just a few examples; education supports improved patient and population health across our integrated delivery system and could extend to areas such as care management and information technology (IT), among other topics. OneCity Health is investing $50 million in workforce training for our network over the Delivery System Reform Incentive Payment (DSRIP) program to support these efforts.
As we make educational content available or schedule opportunities for instruction, we will reach out to our partners and ensure they are well-positioned to improve patient health. Simultaneously, we will coordinate with our PPS partners’ many training-related assets to encourage best practices and leverage our greatest strengths.
