Primary Care First
Primary Care First (PCF) is a voluntary, five-year alternative payment model to reduce Medicare spending by preventing avoidable inpatient hospital admissions and improve quality and access to care for all beneficiaries, particularly those with complex chronic conditions and serious illness.
How Acclivity Health helps you thrive under PCF:
- Aggregate data from multiple, disparate sources to create a unified patient record
- Deliver powerful analytics and predictive models to identify care management opportunities
- Deploy event-triggered workflows to streamline practice operations
- Track and measure performance against key drivers of success
- Provide hands-on guidance from subject matter experts to ensure success in primary care first and other value-based contracts
Other unique capabilities Acclivity offers to support PCF participants
- Reduce ER utilization and inpatient readmissions through improved transition of care services.
- Increase revenues from targeted programs to drive enhanced care management and better financial outcomes from your total patient panel.
- Measure the disease burden for all your patients, without a physical examination, using Acclivity’s Palliative Performance Score (PPS) estimates.
- Build cohorts for targeted referral programs by refining the eligible patient list using palliative indicators like mortality risk, risk of hospitalization, and psychosocial issues.
