Care Management Institute Annual Meeting

Filed under: Uncategorized — Matt Handley @ 7:39 am

Yesterday kicked off the annual meeting for the KP Care Management Institute (CMI), KPs collection of talent from around the program for co-inventing and spreading innovation.  That is innovation defined as “A good idea well executed”.

Yesterday there were stirring words from Robie Pearl and Jack Cochrane, and the teams are ready to tackle the two topics – obesity and cancer care.  What would it take to provide patient centered care in these areas that lead to the best outcomes, as defined by patients?  I think that the major differences between work that has gone on previously and this effort are a patient centered design approach, and the recognition that the greatest levers we have may be the patient and their communities.  There has been a lot of pre-work from the staff at CMI, and we are breaking into two groups to tackle the topics, and then getting back together to challenge each other to think bigger and go farther on behalf of our patients.

Should be an exciting two days
