Valley Medical Group Practices Join Federal Program to Improve Primary Care

 
  

Program’s Goal is to Improve Access to Quality Care at Lower Costs

February 6, 2017  — Valley Medical Group is pleased to announce that 20 of its 23 primary care practices in New Jersey were selected for inclusion in the federal Comprehensive Primary Care Plus program (CPC+), a partnership designed to provide improved access to quality health care at lower costs. The program includes the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), commercial health plans, self-insured businesses, and primary care providers.

Valley Medical Group’s practices are among nearly 2,900 primary care practices nationwide participating in Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+).

“A robust primary care system is essential to achieve better care, smarter spending, and healthier people,” said Acting CMS Administrator Patrick Conway. “For this reason, CMS is committed to supporting primary care clinicians to deliver the best, most comprehensive primary care possible for their patients.”

The CPC+ program aims to improve patients’ experiences in primary care by increasing access to physician practices, strengthening ongoing care management, and increasing engagement between patients and their medical care providers. 

For patients, this means more communication from their  physicians offices, coordination of care with patients’ other health care providers; better engagement for patients and caregivers in managing their own care; and the provision of  individualized, enhanced care for patients living with multiple chronic diseases and higher needs.

“The CPC+ program will support primary care doctors and clinicians to spend time with patients, serve patients’ needs outside of the office visit, and better coordinate care with specialists,” said David Strassberg, M.D., Chair of Primary Care Services for VMG. “It is all about making sure we are providing the right care at the right time and in the right setting, while enhancing communication and the coordination of care.”
