Editor’s Note, DCMS #158

Oct 15, 2013

Did you know that clinicians who work for PCMH’s actually get paid more money from state Medicaid and other programs than their colleagues who practice medicine "the old-fashioned way"? Payers are realizing that this care model gives better outcomes, improves patient-provider interaction and reduces the likelihood of urgent care, emergency room or hospital visits. In Part 2 of our Homerun Slides we look at the ins and outs of building a PCMH and a case study showing exactly how practices are benefiting.

Our Disaster Averted is based on the concept, "If I could see it, I could dose it," and our Clinical Text looks at more treatment guidelines including for patients who are pregnant, hospitalized or who have limited life expectancy. Our Mastery In Minutes video will introduce you to some of the newly identified biomarkers for beta-cell dysfunction.
