Program Summary

EXPEDITED REVIEW. ONLINE LOI AND WHITE PAPER IS DUE THURSDAY DECEMBER 7 AT 5 PM

 

The purpose of this program is to strengthen primary care and the workforce by establishing fellowship programs to train community-based practicing primary care physician and/or physician assistant champions to lead health care transformation and enhance teaching in community–based settings.

Characteristics of transformed health care delivery systems identified by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) include:
• Providers across the care continuum participate in integrated or virtually integrated delivery models,
• Care is coordinated across all providers and settings,
• High level of patient engagement and quantifiable results on patient experience,
• Providers leverage the use of health information technology to improve quality,
• Providers perform at the top of their license and board certification,
• Population health measures are integrated into the delivery system, and
• Data are used to drive health system processes.1

HRSA also recognizes addressing social determinants of health as a characteristic of transformed health care delivery systems.

APPLICANTS MUST:

1. Develop and implement these fellowship programs through academic-community partnerships. Community-based primary care sites must be committed to identifying and supporting physicians and/or physician assistants from their organizations to participate in the PCTE: Training Primary Care Champions program. Fellows must continue to provide clinical services at the primary care site through the course of the fellowship program. Understanding of and commitment to these requirements should be delineated in a letter of agreement from each partnering primary care site (see Attachment 2).
2. Train fellows in the areas of leadership, health care transformation, and education. Training must include content to address competencies in the areas of leadership,2 team-based integrated health care, quality improvement, population health, social determinants of health, health policy, and education.3
3. Support fellows in the selection and implementation of a health care transformation project in their community-based primary care site. These projects must match the needs of the primary care site, have clearly defined goals, objectives, and expected outcomes, and have clear evaluation plans to determine the impact of these projects on improving health among the community served by the primary care site. Fellows must receive appropriate mentorship and support for these projects and evaluation outcomes should be matched to relevant quality outcomes.
