Stoeckle Center Innovation Programs
The Crimson Care Collaborative is a faculty-student primary care practice for MGH and Harvard Medical School students.
This project aims to develop and enhance a team-based approach to depression care using an evidence-based model, improve patient engagement in self-management, and facilitate more efficient depression management through the use of a multidisciplinary care team that relies on a non-MD care manager role.
Partners in Care, the PHS Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) initiative aims to transform our entire system of primary care practices to a team-based model enabling people to work at the top of their license. The initiative will be driven by quality improvement and supported by information technology. We will build vibrant and healthy practices, empowering the teams to deliver coordinated, comprehensive care to all of our patients. We will move the entire population towards a better state of health.
Partners HealthCare is developing an innovative model of care delivery called Population Health Management (PHM) with this goal in mind: improving the health of our patients while lowering the overall cost of care. The new approach includes improvements in how doctors and nurses interact with patients, how these providers interact with each other to better coordinate care, and improvements to the underlying information management systems that support care.
