A Special Opportunity for Primary Care Teams
The purpose of the Potomac Primary Care Collaborative (PPCC) was to engage and support primary care organizations as essential partners in improving health and health care for community residents. The PPCC is was offered by the Virginia Center for Health Innovation in partnership with Community Health Solutions. It was supported by a grant from the Potomac Health Foundation.
Your Vision, Your Goals
The PPCC helped practices define and pursue practice development goals based on a flexible menu that included:
- Focusing patient care goals;
- Optimizing clinical care models;
- Strengthening community linkages;
- Streamlining practice operations;
- Fostering a positive practice environment;
- Using community data to inform practice development;
- Demonstrating the value of primary care for community health; and
- Informing local efforts to strengthen community health supports.
This flexible menu was designed to support ongoing practice initiatives such as Patient Centered Medical Home, the Chronic Care Model, Integrated Behavioral Health, Integrated Oral Health, and others.
A Responsive Support Program
As a PPCC participant you will have access to a robust practice support program provided at no financial cost to your organization. The support menu will include tailored education, data, tools, technical assistance, peer learning opportunities, and strategy coaching to help your team achieve your chosen goals. These supports will be delivered through an efficient combination of virtual and in-person learning activities that will allow your practice team to maximize learning and development while minimizing time spent offsite.
