Pennsylvania Governor Rendell Thanks 'Pioneers' for Making Pennsylvania the National Leader on Chronic Care Management and Creating Patient-Centered Medical Homes
Date:5/13/2009

rsement and Cost Reduction Commission, who were appointed by the Governor. They developed a plan that proposed a pilot program enrolling 30-60 primary care practices in the southeastern region in learning collaboratives that would help improve how they monitor, deliver and are reimbursed for chronic care management. The first collaborative, which the Governor honored tonight, started in May 2008. Additional collaboratives are underway in other regions of the state. By June 2009, more than 750,000 patients will be treated at practices involved in these collaboratives.

While a few other states, such as Vermont, Washington, Colorado and North Carolina, have launched chronic care initiatives, Pennsylvania's is the first that also took into consideration the way health care practitioners are paid for delivering care. Insurers agreed that it pays dividends to pay a little more to improve the amount of time that is spent with patients before problems are exacerbated and become difficult for the patient to handle and more costly to the system.

The chronic care plan, as well as more information on Governor Rendell's Prescription for Pennsylvania, can be found at www.rxforpa.com.

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses.
