A multi-state, quasi-experimental evaluation of the Patient-centered Medical Home (PCMH) model in Colorado was conducted by the Harvard University School of Public Health. This evaluation identified factors associated with the implementation of the PCMH model as well as the outcomes related to patient and physician experiences, changes in quality of care measures and cost. With claims data from the participating insurance companies, the evaluation examined utilization and costs for patients in the pilot sites relative to similar patients in the comparison groups.
Supported the work of the Medical Clean Claims, Transparency & Uniformity Task Force (formed as a result of the Colorado legislature’s passage of House Bill 10-1332), with a goal of having providers, payers and government representatives develop a uniform set of insurance codes and payment rules to be employed by all payers having contracts with health care providers; and significantly reduce the cost of administrative redundancies through standardization, consistency, transparency and appropriate savings to the health care system.
