Webinar: Transforming Care Delivery and Improving Quality through PRIME
Join CAPH/SNI on December 17 to learn more about the progress and impact of California’s public health care systems in PRIME (Public Hospital Redesign and Incentives in Medi-Cal), a key program of the Medi-Cal 2020 waiver.
During the webinar, we will present PRIME performance data and implementation trends for year three of the program. Two participating health systems, Alameda Health System and Riverside University Health System, will provide on-the-ground implementation perspectives of care delivery and data analytic innovations that impact the lives of patients and support their success in PRIME.
What is PRIME?
PRIME is a pay-for-performance delivery system transformation program and one of the cornerstones of the Medi-Cal 2020 waiver, providing up to $3.2 billion in funding to California’s public health care systems if all targets are met. The program is nothing short of ambitious, with a minimum of nine required projects spanning outpatient delivery system transformation, improving care for high-risk populations, and efficient resource stewardship.
The California Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems (CAPH) and its 501c3 affiliate the California Health Care Safety Net Institute (SNI) represent California’s 21 public health care systems.
These county-owned and operated facilities and University of California medical centers are the core of the state’s health care safety net, delivering care to all who need it, regardless of ability to pay or circumstance. Though just 6% of all health care systems in the state, California’s public health care systems serve more than 2.85 million patients a year, provide 11.5 million outpatients visits annually, operate more than half of the state’s top-level trauma and burn centers, and train more than half of all new doctors in the state. California’s public health care systems operate in 15 counties where more than 80% of Californians live, providing 35% of all hospital care to Medi-Cal beneficiaries and 40% of hospital care to the remaining uninsured in the communities they serve.
