Project for scholars month at CVP:
Dr. Baughman has completed a scoping review of the primary care quality measurement literature focused on comprehensiveness. With this annotated bibliography, he will be engaging in pre-decisional activities related to development of a potential primary care model at The Centers of Medicare and Medicaid Innovations (CMMI). With his credentialing at CMMI, he will have the opportunity to 1) generating options for quality measurement approaches, 2) providing clinical context for development of quality measurement strategies, and 3) provide insight on literature surrounding value based payment model history in primary care (i.e. CPC, CPC+, PCF) and future-looking reports (i.e. NASEM future of primary care reports). Dr. Baughman will also participate with ABFM’s CVP staff and medical officers on external stakeholder discussions (including panelist participation in the Continuity of Care Technical Expert Panel) and continue working with CMMI after his scholars month in ongoing value-based payment model development.
