This article is sponsored by The American Resident Project and written in partnership with The Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative.
The Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) and The American Resident Project today launched The Team Care Challenge — an open call for U.S.-based physicians to submit their innovative ideas to promote team care on Medstro, the social network for physicians.
Finalists whose ideas best involve the entire extended care team, the patient’s family and other care givers to improve patient outcomes and lower cost will be chosen by the Medstro community and invited to present their ideas at the PCPCC’s annual conference in Washington D.C.
“As the health system strives to realize the full potential of the patient-centered medical home, we recognize the need to redesign clinical practice to include innovations in team-based care, partnerships with patients, and coordination of care across the medical neighborhood and within communities,” said Marcos Molina, marketing communications coordinator at PCPCC.
“We are very excited about hosting the Team Care Challenge at the PCPCC 2015 Annual Fall Conference as it provides a unique opportunity to discuss and promote innovative ideas that will advance this type of care.”
A panel of judges including physicians as well as public health and policy experts will choose a winner at the live luncheon.
The deadline for submissions is Sunday, September 27, 2015.
