Health Information and Technology in Primary Care: Learnings from CPC+

1:00pm - 2:00pm Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center


The Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) model is a national advanced primary care medical home model run by the CMS Innovation Center that aims to strengthen primary care through regionally-based, multi-payer payment reform and care delivery transformation. CPC+ includes two primary care practice tracks with incrementally advanced care delivery requirements and payment options to meet the diverse needs of primary care practices in the United States (U.S.). CPC+ started in 2017 and now encompasses nearly 3,000 primary care practices in 18 regions across the country. One of the hallmarks of the model is the inclusion of advanced HIT requirements for Track 2 of the model and partnership with HIT vendors as part of the CPC+ learning community. This session will review the lessons learned in the first two years of the CPC+ model and explore what the CPC+ HIT experience means for primary care innovation.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Describe the HIT requirements for CPC+ as they relate to primary care transformation objectives
  • Analyze the HIT-related results from the first two years of CPC+ to assess learnings and challenges experienced by CPC+ participants
  • Evaluate the HIT learnings from the first two years of CPC+ to make predictions for primary care transformation in general and CPC+ specifically
