Onpoint, Milbank, and the Blueprint Team Up for a Panel Presentation at Maine QC 2015

Onpoint team members will join Lisa Dulsky Watkins, MD, of the Milbank Memorial Fund and Jenney Samuelson, MS, of the Vermont Blueprint for Health to host a breakout session on "Primary Care Transformation: Lessons from Across the Nation" at this year's Maine Quality Counts Conference
on April 1.

Over the course of our presentation, attendees will gain a high-level national perspective on primary care transformation programs and study in detail how Vermont’s nationally-recognized Multi-payer Advanced Primary Care Practice (MAPCP) demonstration, the Blueprint for Health, is linking integrated claims data (commercial, Medicaid, and Medicare) from the state’s all-payer claims database (APCD) with clinical data from the state's practice registry to generate a series of risk-adjusted metrics that give providers and Hospital Service Areas (HSAs) across Vermont new insights into their health care delivery.

Lisa Dulsky Watkins, MD, will conclude the panel presentation by moderating a discussion and open question-and-answer session with Quality Counts participants. Panelists and QC participants will together discuss how current initiatives at the practice level can help reverse some of the key drivers of spending growth and poor health/healthcare quality, and how meaningful data can be accessed and interpreted to drive transformative, sustainable changes in healthcare systems across local communities.

We are very excited to have the chance to present and interact at QC 2015. If you were unable to attend the conference, but are interested in learning more about our featured discussion, please be sure to stay tuned for a conference briefing and to visit the informational links provided below.
