PCORI Roundtable Discussions

C-TAC was honored to receive the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Award for Capacity Building from the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). We are using this support to develop regional leadership forums that tackle issues in advanced illness care.

C-TAC has worked with community partners to host a series of regional leadership forums in major cities around the United States, reaching patient and consumer advocates, health system leaders, faith leaders, and other key influencers who are working to improve advanced care.

Report: Best Practices in Advance Care Planning

C-TAC has released the full version of a report designed to identify strategies that could be used to boost the use of advance care planning (ACP), a practice that is now more important than ever as we face the uncertainties of the COVID-19 pandemic. Discern Health, a healthcare quality and research advisory organization, developed the report.

This research will help to further enhance C-TAC’s Advanced Care Transformation (ACT) IndexSM. This project focuses on one of the 37 ACT Index measures, Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries with advance care planning. The measure captures the percent of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries with an ACP-specific billing code recorded on a claim.
