At their best, clinical core measures serve as an important window to examine the impact and quality of care being delivered at health centers. However, without an effective system in place clinical core measures can require a great deal of time and effort without yielding important quality improvement. This session will examine both short and long term strategies health centers can employ to make the best use out of the clinical core measures to improve care for patients. Drs Zuroweste and Dethlefs will examine the building blocks health centers need for an effective quality improvement system. Through a series of case studies, this session will explore the role of clinical leadership, technology and strategies for building a short and long term quality infrastructure that works.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify common pitfalls health centers encounter related to the clinical core measures.
  2. Discuss strategies for assessing a health center’s current capacity to engage in meaningful quality improvement.
  3. Through case studies, evaluate different approaches to clinical quality improvement using the clinical core measures.

Over the last 30 years, considerable attention has been paid in the clinical setting to cultural competency- the ability to mitigate against the effects of the sociocultural differences between clinicians and patients and to take into account how culture affects the symptoms presented or the patients’ attitude about health care.  More recently, scholars and clinicians have encouraged those in practice or health professions training to focus not only on the behaviors and beliefs of cultural groups but more importantly to consider the structural determinants, prejudices, injustices and blind spots, the “pathologies of social systems” that affect health outcomes and the stigma experienced by patients. The session will introduce participants to the broad framework of structural competency and the five core structural competencies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify the structures that shape clinical interactions;
  2. Discuss the means of developing an extra-clinical language of structure;
  3. Rearticulate “cultural” formulations in structural terms;
  4. Explain the process of observing and imagining structural interventions; and
  5. Describe the concept of structural humility.

Much of the medical home model is predicated on a relatively stable population that can access regular care at a single network of providers.  So how can this model effectively transfer to a mobile population?  One of the key elements needed is a more expansive vision of a medical home beyond a single geographic location.  This session will explore strategies to create a patient centered medical home for patients on the move.  The session will include an update and overview of MCN’s Health Network to manage critical health care issues such as infectious disease, Cancer, Diabetes and Pre-natal patient navigations.  Participants will also be engaged in a discussion around best practices in tracking outcomes and reporting test results to patients.  Presenters will highlight innovative promising practices in the creation of patient centered medical homes for migrant patients.
