PCPCH Site Visits: What to Expect

Webinar Date: 
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 - 8:00am to 9:00am

This webinar provides an introductory overview of the site visit process as outlined by team members from the Oregon Health Authority’s Patient-Centered Primary Care Home (PCPCH) Program. The presentation includes a brief program overview and address topics such as: application to the PCPCH Program, verification documentation, agenda-planning, visit content, and post-visit follow-up and support.

Participants also hear from a certified PCPCH recognized practice about what happens before, during and after an actual site visit.

We hope that this webinar provides answers to questions clinics have about site visits, and equips them with the information necessary to feel prepared for a site visit.

Webinar participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of the core attributes and basic structure of the PCPCH Program
  • Become familiar with the three phases of the site visit process (before, during, and after)
  • Learn about their role in the site visit process

He received his undergraduate degree from the University of California - San Diego, and his medical degree and PhD in Microbiology from Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. In addition to seeing patients in the clinic, he works on a variety of health policy, advocacy, and communications issues with groups such as the Oregon Academy of Family Physicians, as well as with legislators in Oregon and nationally.
