Knowledge Exchange Pilot: Maine Quality Counts and Medical Home Builder

Lunder-Dineen is working closely with Maine Quality Counts to expand the reach of the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) pilot project. The Maine PCMH Pilot is a multi-stakeholder statewide effort to implement and evaluate the PCMH model in 26 primary care practices as the first step in achieving statewide adoption of a PCMH model of care. Pilot practices represent only a fraction of more than 500 total primary care practices in Maine.

Given the compelling need to identify flexible and effective models to support learning for additional practices across the state, Lunder-Dineen and Maine Quality Counts are developing an innovative, interactive, Web-based educational program for primary care providers and practice teams that centers on best practices for adopting the PCMH model and transforming practice to a more patient-centered model of care. In this collaboration, Lunder-Dineen provides no-cost access to the American College of Physicians’ Medical Home Builder program so practices have access to a resource-rich, established national learning system, while Lunder-Dineen conducts research on the dissemination, implementation and impact of the education.
