Nationwide Network for Home‐Based Primary Care Education Launches
The Home Centered Care Institute (HCCI), a JAHF grantee, has launched a first-of-its-kind network of Home-Based Primary Care Centers of Excellence (COEs). The COEs will offer a unique home-based primary care curriculum designed to support physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and practice managers in delivering high-quality care while reducing costs. Building on Medicare’s successful Independence at Home demonstration and proposed bipartisan legislation, the COEs and HCCI will support a growing movement to deliver person-centered care to frail older adults where it makes the most sense – in the home. The curriculum includes classroom training, group mentorship, hands-on fellowship, and online learning opportunities. The first eight COEs represent geographically diverse hospitals from the East and West coasts, Midwest, South, and the Mid-Atlantic.
