​Using the Patient Centered Medical Home Model to Prevent and Mitigate COVID in Rural America

Dmepos Store and Patient

The COVID Medical Home is our enhanced accreditation program that delivers an expanded and integrated approach to improve rural primary care delivery systems. By adapting our PCMH standards to integrate COVID and telemedicine outreach, engagement and education, TCT addresses the unique needs and vulnerabilities of rural patients and communities. The PCMH model, and its value-based care approach, serve as the foundation for the development and implementation of COVID-related education, prevention, testing, confidence, vaccine distribution and mitigation strategies.

COVID Medical Home Meets Federal Funding Requirements

The Compliance Team’s “COVID Medical Home” dovetails with each of the 2021 rural hospital and RHC federal grant programs and represents an unprecedented opportunity to use federal funding to underwrite the implementation of a durable, long-term operational model for your clinic that both addresses the immediate need for COVID mitigation and prevention, but that sets up your practice for future operational efficiency and value-based reimbursement opportunities.  With $860M in federal funding available to rural hospitals and clinics in 2021, the PCMH model can serve as the core infrastructure for the development and implementation of standardized and collaborative COVID-related education, prevention, testing, confidence, vaccine distribution and mitigation strategies.

I’m a Practice Manager – show me the benefits

  1. Access a Single Point of Truth.  No longer search for COVID prevention and mitigation solutions, smart ideas or crisis interventions – The Compliance Team has that covered for you when you manage a COVID Medical Home
  2. Make your Practice a Home.  We entered healthcare to make a difference and the PCMH model helps practices prevent disease, manufacture wellness and reduce illness in our rural communities.
  3. Simplify your Practice Operations.  The PCMH model brings order and logic to how the clinic addresses COVID prevention and mitigation
    • Staff training to help your team engage your community
    • Community education to build confidence in your vaccination and treatment offerings
    • Vaccine administration to optimize, simplify and demystify access
    • Patient workflow to ensure the patient experience is positive
    • Recruitment of quality staff and providers who want to make a difference
  4. Make your life simpler.  Let the HRSA grants subsidize The Compliance Team to help you streamline processes, defragment workflows and bring back the joy of practicing medicine
  5. Help your community.  Integrate care management with COVID prevention and mitigation activities (hospital and clinic)
  6. Be a Leader.  The COVID Medical Home model provides the content, support and resources necessary to establish your practice and team as industry leaders that provide outstanding care and increased access to your rural community
