URAC CEO to Address Future of Primary Care at PCPCC Conference

URAC President and CEO Kylanne Green will address healthcare experts on progress in achieving more coordinated, value-based delivery of care on November 9 at a presentation in Washington, DC.

In conjunction with the annual meeting of the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC), Green will discuss advancements in development of the PCPCC’s Shared Principles of Primary Care and “Quadruple Aim” of better care, better health, reduced cost, and a better work environment for clinicians and staff. PCPCC’s membership includes more than 1,200 organizations representing healthcare providers, payers, purchasers, and patients.

“We are thrilled to have a diverse group of stakeholders driving the development of the Shared Principles of Primary Care, and particularly pleased to have Kylanne Green as a member of the steering committee helping to lead this effort,” said Marci Nielsen, PCPCC’s president and CEO. “As the voice of practical experience from various perspectives, she exemplifies collaboration on the PCPCC’s Accreditation Work Group.”

The panel, What Does the Future of Person-Centered, Team-Based, Primary Care Look Like? Developing New Shared Principles of High-Performing Primary Care, also features Christine Bechtel of the Bechtel Health Advisory Group and Dr. Glen Stream of Family Medicine for America’s Health. It is part of the PCPCC’s members-only Executive Member Annual Meeting at the Grand Hyatt.

PCPCC members are building on the Shared Principles and developing expectations for the delivery of improved, value-based population health services. Green’s expertise in independent healthcare accreditation is complemented by insights from those representing consumer and physician interests as they discuss how these principles might transform practice behavior.

“The healthcare industry is united in wanting better coordination that highlights physician leadership and a focus on patient needs,” said Green. “A change in philosophy and economics from volume to value is driving this change, and these shared goals will revitalize primary care to the benefit of both clinicians and consumers.”
