WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The patient centered medical home (PCMH) is an attractive answer to problems of access, quality and efficiency in health care. The PCMH puts the patient at the center of continuous, uninterrupted care, coordinated in partnership with a personal provider with the right tools that will lead to better health. A new Webinar from Health2 Resources offers physician practices the nuts and bolts of practice redesign via 10 practical steps that build on one another to create an efficient, patient-centered practice.

10 Steps to an Efficient, Profitable, Patient-Centered Primary Care Practice offers a simple approach that doesn't depend on new finance models or expensive new IT tools to get started. The presentation lays out a step-by-step method to transition to operate and build a collaborative team, and develop the capacity for sophisticated patient care and chronic care management.

The Webinar features practice transformation expert Anton Kuzel, MD, Harris-Mayo distinguished professor and chair, Virginia Commonwealth University Department of Family Medicine. He is actively involved with the Virginia Academy of Family Physicians to promote practical strategies for family medicine practice redesign to achieve far better financial and care quality performance and improved patient, physician, and staff satisfaction.

Christine A. Sinsky, MD, will provide real-world insight into how her practice, Medical Associates Clinic & Health Plans of Dubuque, Iowa, implemented steps to become a certified medical home. Sinsky is the physician champion for the clinic's medical home initiatives. She is also a member of the NCQA Committee on Physician Programs, providing input into the PCMH, and the Society of General Internal Medicine PCMH working group. Sinsky is a consultant in medicine at the Stoeckle Center for Primary Care Innovation at the Massachusetts General Hospital.
