The Learning Collaborative

  • Provides transformational strategies and coaching support to help home-based primary care and palliative practices implement quality improvement principles and demonstrate high-value care.
  • Gives practices the opportunity to use a CMS-approved Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR), which employs quality indicators appropriate to the home-based medical care population and care setting.
  • Makes available to physicians a quality improvement activity that provides an opportunity for American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM)-certified physicians to earn 20 maintenance of certification (MOC) points.

The main focus of the Learning Collaborative is for practices to improve the care provided in home-based medical care, help to create a culture of quality improvement and continuous learning in the field, and to create a community of quality in home-based medical care.

Practices may additionally choose to use the QCDR to report data to CMS to satisfy MIPS requirements for quality-based performance reporting.

The Learning Collaborative experience starts and ends with in-person meetings commencing and concluding the program.

Between in-person meetings, the Learning Collaborative will facilitate a series of video conference interactive learning sessions, technical assistance, and access to web-based quality improvement tools. Teams will complete an initial assessment of their current practice, identify opportunities for improvement, and will work between learning sessions to meet their aims.
