Executive Workshop – Value-based Primary Care

On 15-16 February 2021, EHMA hosted a two-day
executive workshop on value-based primary care.

The EHMA workshop discussed the latest frameworks and experiences on how primary care is evolving in ever-changing healthcare systems and how services and management adapted to COVID-19. Comparison of experiences from different countries was discussed, with a specific focus on the Catalan case of CASAP and the Italian Lombardy Region reform based on proactive population health management, Chronic Related Groups (CReGs) and individual care contracts.

Particular attention was given to the new reality created by COVID-19, which has profoundly affected all primary care services. The significant number of services that were postponed during the first and second wave has generated serious consequences for the management of chronic and high-risk patients. Returning to full capacity in primary care activities, as well as recovering from the gaps left behind requires clear strategies and innovative actions. This will need the use of all opportunities provided by modern technologies as well as the anticipation of new paradigmatic operational changes and cultural shifts.

The workshop included discussions and confrontations on all these challenges and provided participants with food for thought and the best opportunity for bench learning.

Programme

DAY 1 | 15 February 2021, 14.00-18.00

In this second session, the first case study will be presented: how Italy is tackling the chronic care revolution.

In this session, we will discuss the new primary care reality created by COVID-19. The significant number of services that were postponed during the first and second wave has generated serious consequences for the management of chronic and high-risk patients. How did services and management adapt to COVID-19?
