Implementing Effective Care Coordination Models for Advanced Illness Patients
September 20, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
With support from PCORI as part of their Eugene Washington Engagement for Capacity Building Award Program, C-TAC is convening a Regional Research Forum so that health system leaders, individual providers, payers, and community and state coalitions can learn about three pioneering PCORI-funded research studies that present innovative models of care for patients living with an advanced illness. The aim of the Forum is to connect the PCORI researchers with advanced illness care implementers to improve the quality of life of advanced illness patients and their families.
The purpose of this Forum is to place these person-centered, actionable PCORI studies in the hands of implementers – health system leaders, individual providers, payers, community and state coalitions, and advocacy groups – who can use the research findings to improve the delivery of care for patients living with advanced illness.
The following PCORI-funded investigators will present their research:
- Thomas Caprio, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine / Public Health Sciences / Nursing, University of Rochester School of Medicine
- Sarah Scholle, DrPH, VP of Research and Analysis, National Committee for Quality Assurance
- Nick Faris, Director of Thoracic Oncology at the Baptist Cancer Center, Memphis, TN
