The Patient-Centered Primary Care Institute offers programs that promote knowledge sharing, facilitate collaborative learning, build capacity and create alignment in primary care transformation.
In the fall of 2013, the Institute offered three weeklong comprehensive trainings on brief, evidenced-based behavioral health interventions designed for primary care settings delivered by a national expert. Since truly integrated behavioral health involves the entire practice team, these sessions involved different levels of participation for several critical health care team members.
Institute Learning Collaboratives incorporate multiple learning methods to maximize opportunities for participating practices to learn from each other and from technical experts in topic areas aligned with Oregon Health Authority's Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) program standards. Collaboratives include face-to-face training sessions, work between sessions via phone and web and individualized practice coaching.
To build capacity for statewide primary care transformation the Institute brings together professionals who support practices as they work towards the primary care home/medical home model of care. The TA Expert Learning Network allows these professionals to share their successful quality improvement and primary care transformation programs, strategies, tools and ideas. The TA Expert Learning Network includes practice coaches, program managers and data/quality improvement professionals, as well as administrative and clinical professionals.
