Date: 

02/05/2015

Promising findings from two large-scale tests of advanced primary care: the Comprehensive Primary Care (CPC) initiative and the Multi-Payer Advanced Primary Care Practice (MAPCP) Demonstration were just announced by Dr. Patrick Conway, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Deputy Administrator for Innovation and Quality and Chief Medical Officer. 

Some of the grantees in both the CPC initiative and the MAPCP demonstration are primary care practices that are integrating behavioral health.

The reported first-year results illustrate the potential for steady improvements in the participating practices’ advanced primary care capabilities. The CMS anticipates continued improvements as the participating practices deepen and refine their methods of delivering advanced primary care so that patients can continue to receive improved quality and coordination of care.
