New York Physicians Receive $1.5M for Building Patient-Centered Medical Homes

Six New York health plans have paid $1.5 million in incentives to 236 primary care physicians in 11 practices for transforming their practices into patient-centered medical homes for nearly half a million Hudson Valley residents, according to a news release by Taconic Health Information Network and Community.

The PCMH transformation project was managed over a one-year period by THINC in collaboration with Taconic IPA. Following on the success of its medical home incentive program, THINC, in partnership with Taconic IPA and Geisinger Health System, seeks to bring a model of embedded care management within the National Committee for Quality Assurance Level 3 patient-centered medical homes to achieve gains in efficiency and quality.

Geisinger's ProvenHealth Navigator program will be tailored to meet the specific needs of the Hudson Valley. The program will start with a small pilot at several sites with the ultimate goal of rolling out to medical home-recognized primary care providers across the community.
