Health Care Delivery
Health care/system redesign involves making systematic changes to primary care practices and health systems to improve the quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of patient care.
The information in this report is intended to help clinicians, employers, policymakers, and others make informed decisions about the provision of health care services.
The Practice Facilitator’s Handbook is designed to assist in the training of new practice facilitators as they begin to develop the knowledge and skills needed to support meaningful improvement in primary care practices. It evolved from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Integrating Chronic Care and Business Strategies in the Safety Net toolkit. That toolkit was developed to aid safety net practices in implementing the Chronic Care Model, now commonly referred to as the Care Model, in their practices. The handbook consists of 20 training modules; each includes a Trainer’s Guide.
