CQC Webinar – Advanced Primary Care: Piloting Practice Level Measurement

February 28th, 2022

On Wednesday, March 30, the Purchaser Business Group on Health’s California Quality Collaborative (CQC) hosted a webinar describing the next step in California’s journey to scale high-quality, efficient and patient-centered primary care, also known as Advanced Primary Care (APC).

The recent pandemic strain on the health system has highlighted the need for deeper transparency. This enables plans, providers and purchasers to make better informed decisions and to focus resource allocation to support providers where needed and drive better population health overall.

With this in mind, CQC and the Integrated Healthcare Association (IHA) have initiated a new APC Measurement pilot, funded initially by the California Health Care Foundation. Four purchasers, including CalPERS, Covered California and eBay, are partnering to test practice level assessment of a common APC measure set.
