Planning is underway for the 5th Annual Ohio Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (OPCPCC) Conference on Friday, November 18, at the Pinnacle Golf Club in Grove City, OH. Conference planners are interested in featuring a panel presentation, during which some Ohio patient-centered medical homes can showcase their best practices related to working within the medical neighborhood to prevent and manage diabetes. If your practice has an innovative approach to addressing diabetes in your practice – OPCPCC wants to hear from you!
The conference theme, “Mobilizing Prevention and Practice Teamwork in the Neighborhood: Leveraging the Primary Care Relationship,” will examine how primary care practice teams can work through the patient-centered medical neighborhood to mobilize prevention and disease management activities to improve population health. Diabetes prevention and management will be used as an example throughout the conference to illustrate models, strategies, and best practices.
If you have a best practice or a unique way to harness diabetes and would like to be considered for inclusion in the conference program, please contact Amy Bashforth in the Office of Health Policy and Performance Improvement at the Ohio Department of Health or call 614.644.9756.
