Survey: Did you find what you needed on the Medical Home Portal?

There is a new banner on the Medical Home Portal website (except for the homepage), asking if you’ll take a 2 question survey to let us know how we’re doing. We’d love to hear from you. Or you can go directly to the survey: Medical Home Portal Satisfaction Survey

Spring 2017 UCCCN Learning Session

We had a terrific Spring Learning Session on March 15th. Our topic was “Collaborating on Care Coordination.” 63 people participated, 10 of whom were from payer (or payer-like) organizations: Healthy U, Molina, Health Choice Utah, SelectHealth, and Pediatric Specialty Services (PSS). Others were from Utah pediatric practices. There were some great questions and answers around collaboration between care managers at the insurance organization and care coordinators in practices. Some things were clarified and ideas for better communication were shared.
Listen to the archived session here:March 2017 UCCCN Learning Session: Collaborating on Care Coordination. For summarized meeting notes, email mindy.tueller@utah.edu.

Coming Soon to the Portal

  • Frequently used custom Services Providers lists – they are easy to copy and customize for your own use. Printing of lists has been improved and of course, the list link is permanent, so please share with patients, Medical Home team members, etc.
  • Information in the Utah Services Directory about primary care providers for transitioning young adults with special health care needs.

Finally ...

What would you do without the Medical Home Portal? Our main funding ends this summer. We are exploring a variety of approaches to sustaining the Portal, including a proposal through Utah Medicaid for federal funding to develop an “app” that could plug in to electronic health records. We welcome your thoughts and ideas for ways to support the Medical Home Portal and its team. Please email your input to chuck.norlin@hsc.utah.edu or mindy.tueller@utah.edu.
