The Rheumatology Medical Home Demonstration Project is being created in partnership with key stakeholders as a model for collaboration between hospital and community rheumatologists working together toward a common goal of improving patient care and population health outcomes. We will start with the opportunity for clinical improvement assessment and identify in gaps in care for RA.
Why Now? WRA, in partnership with key stakeholders, have created a model of collaboration both hospital and community rheumatologist can work together with the common goal- improving patient care and health outcomes. We will evolve and develop The Rheumatology Specialty Medical Home Demonstration Project with local and national payers.
How will we do this? Harmonizing measure specifications, streamlining and standardizing care, we will track multiple disease management data point in patients with co-morbid conditions, and will establish a comparative data platform to share in community-driven quality improvement and payment reform initiatives.
What are we going to do? A shared rheumatology-specific customized software that facilitates our QI initiative by mobilizing our specialty to measure practice-wide clinical quality parameters and improving clinical outcomes at the point of care. This provides patients and physicians critical “real-time” insights to make informed decisions gaining a complete longitudinal view of the patient’s journey.
By forming the foundation of a delivery system that goes beyond rheumatology, the (RMH) demonstration program strives to strengthen the roles of both primary care and specialty practices as they co-manage patients in a quality care delivery system. With the passage of healthcare reform and the call for improved quality, value, and demonstration of results, we invite you (rheumatologist) to join us on our journey as we demonstrate our value with The Rheumatology Medical Home Demonstration Project.
