"The Medical Neighborhood: What is beginning to work, and what isn't" traces the last 25 years of our team's work in primary care quality improvement, and leaves us with recommendations for moving forward. This was MacColl Center Director (Emeritus) Ed Wagner, MD, MPH's last seminar before his retirement in June 2017.
In this article, Ed Wagner and colleagues describe three diverse SNMHI practices selected based on their improvement as measured by the PCMH-A (Patient-Centered Medical Home Assessment). We interviewed 2-3 leaders from the each of 3 practices seeking information about their motivations for transforming, the methods used to make changes, and challenges and facilitators.
Our Assessment of Chronic Illness Care survey has been translated into Korean by researchers Seok-won Hong PhD and Young-eun Kim MS at the National Evidence-based Healthcare Collaborating Agency in Seoul.
