Transforming Primary Care
The Governor's Office of Health Transformation (OHT) is working with private sector partners to reset the basic rules of health care competition so the incentive is to keep people as healthy as possible, pay for what works to improve and maintain health, and shift from volume-based fee-for-service payments to value-based payments that reward patient-centered care coordination and better health outcomes. On May 19, OHT convened a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Design Team to develop a payment model to financially reward team-based primary care that holds down the total cost of care by preventing disease and managing chronic conditions. OHT also released a request for proposals to support the State Design Team's work and prepare a PCMH payment model for adoption across Medicaid, Medicare and commercial insurance throughout Ohio.
