In 2008–2017, 15–18% of U.S. primary care practices sought or maintained patient-centered medical home recognition. We interviewed a sample of 105 of these practices to determine why patient experience surveys were chosen.
Evidence shows that leaders who implement the patient-centered medical home care model encounter challenges in driving change. Understanding which changes and quality improvement practices further implementation is essential.
We conducted a systematic search for English-language peer-reviewed articles after 2010 on differences in urban and rural care provided by U.S. HHAs. We screened 876 studies and conducted full-text abstraction and NOS quality review on 36 articles.
We describe two applications in which imputation of race and ethnicity can help mitigate potential algorithmic biases: equitable disease screening algorithms using machine learning and equitable pay-for-performance incentives.
Our analyses provide evidence of the feasibility, reliability, and validity of proposed survey-based measures to assess the quality of home-based serious illness care from the perspective of patients and their families.
A new standard of care proposed by RAND researchers aims to redefine high-quality care for veterans with a traumatic brain injury or posttraumatic stress disorder. But it also could serve as a template for making health care more effective, more consistent, and more responsive for more patients.
RAND Corporation researchers developed and field-tested a survey to assess the experiences of individuals who receive care from programs that provide serious illness care to patients in their homes. This is the Spanish version of the survey tool.
Stakeholders reported that BIP participation had a range of impacts on the HCBS ecosystem, often beyond the structural reforms. Our findings highlight BIP impacts to monitor over the long term and to consider in evaluations of future rebalancing efforts.
This study uses data from 14 qualitative interviews with senior leaders and nine focus groups with tenants and program staff to understand tenant experiences with permanent supportive housing programs, as they relate to care coordination.
This paper examines correlates of advance care planning among midlife and older adults in the U.S., with attention to informal planning (e.g., conversations) and formal planning (e.g., legal documentation) and factors at the individual, interpersonal, and health care levels.
In this Perspective, we make the case for, and provide an approach to, using online Delphi approaches--particularly the online modified-Delphi--for engaging a panel of patients continuously throughout all stages of CPG development.
The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored that long-term care residents, their families, and staff have limited representation when it comes to facility policies. Recognizing them as stakeholders with perspectives to include in decisionmaking could improve infection control practices and also address residents' health-related quality of life.
Primary Care Medical Home efforts necessitated support and assistance to practice leaders. Changes include financial incentives,leadership direction and support, and staff with experience with the PCMH application process, implementation, and QI.
Patients, their family members, and the general public have historically been excluded from contributing to health care value assessment models. But methods for including patient voices in research are far less complicated or demanding than some researchers believe they will be.
