Are you and your health care organization ready to take the next step in creating patient centered medical homes?

Join Samaritan Health Services for a two-day conference where experts and early adopters of health care reform have developed strategies and processes.

Samaritan Health Services is an integrated health care system comprised of five hospitals, more than 80 clinics, assisted living facility and health plans. As a health care provider in the state of Oregon where state leaders were early adopters of health care reform, Samaritan Health Services has been able to lead and advance health care to better meet the requirements of health care reform.

Since 2012, Samaritan has gained experience and created best practices that enabled them to:

  • Convert 23 primary care clinics in a geographically diverse region, including multiple rural settings, to Oregon Health Authority patient centered medical home standards since 2012.
  • Integrate behavioral health in all 23 patient centered medical home clinics.
  • Participate in the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Comprehensive Primary Care Initiative with three clinics
  • Establish an employee engagement program.
  • Develop a care coordination team approach.

Over the course of two days the following topics will be covered:

  • Care coordination

  • Building a culture of continuous quality improvement
  • Data and operations integration
  • Executive session
