WASHINGTON, DC USA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- NOVEMBER 18, 2020: The Primary Care Collaborative is offering its PCC 2020 Virtual Annual Conference on November 30 -- December 1, 2020.

If you're asking these questions, the place to explore them and find some answers is the PCC's Virtual Annual Conference. We've assembled thought leaders across diverse sectors who share a commitment to and passion for primary care. Come and hear their expert perspectives and opinions. We've also scheduled the following discussion opportunities as a way for you to engage with other conference participants:

Implementing High-Quality Primary Care
Sponsored by American Board of Family Medicine
Designed to inform attendees about the National Academy of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine consensus committee's Implementing High Quality Primary Care report to be released in early 2021. The last report NAM authored on primary care was 1996, and a lot has changed since then!
Presented by Robert L. Phillips Jr., MD, MSPH, Executive Director, The Center for Professionalism & Value in Health Care, and Co-chair of NASEM Committee

Telehealth & Patient-Centered Care: How Do You Stand Out?
Sponsored by NCQA
Offering a telehealth option is now a must-have capability for most practices. How can you differentiate yours? NCQA offers special acknowledgement for practices that excel in specific areas: distinctions signifying that practices go above and beyond the standards of the medical home or specialty practice. As telehealth adoption expands, showing that your practice can deliver patient-centered care virtually will become more important to stakeholders.
Facilitated by:
Christina Borden, Director, Product Development, NCQA
Torshira Moffett, Director, Product Development, NCQA

On each day of the conference, the PCC will convene small-group discussions. Plan to join the discussion on one of these topics:

  • Role of Primary Care in Addressing Health Inequities (Nov. 30)
  • How Primary Care Practices Survive & Thrive During the Pandemic (Nov. 30)
  • Next Steps for Primary Care Payment (Nov. 30)
  • Primary Care Best Practices in Leveraging Technology (Dec. 1)
  • Vaccine Dissemination, including Overcoming Hesitancy (Dec. 1)
  • Employer Vision for Advanced Primary Care (Dec. 1)

Check out the conference speakers and topics.

This year's momentous events - the pandemic, the economic downturn, the renewed conversations about racial and health inequities, and the November election - all have the potential to impact and be catalysts for changes in primary care. The conference is a chance to come together as champions of primary care and to put ourselves on the forefront of reimaging primary care and shaping its future.

See the full agenda and what else this year's conference will have to offer.

PCC hopes to see you online at this year's virtual conference!
