The Green Mountain Care Board recently approved a cancer care pilot project in the St. Johnsbury area designed to improve quality, enhance patient satisfaction, and reduce costs. PCD Partners has been retained to provide consulting and to deploy a cloud-based, proprietary ISO-style Quality Management System to support this important initiative. PCD’s process and outcomes data will demonstrate best practice adherence among the participating healthcare providers, and aid the players in designing optimal payment reform that aligns incentives between patients, providers, and payors.
Wes Chapman, President and CEO of PCD Partners, said, “PCD is pleased to be part of this oncology based reform initiative that will rationalize healthcare operations and improve quality of care for Vermont cancer patients,” adding, “Since the program is designed to be scalable to other state and federal initiatives, the project is also capable of significant impact on the quality and cost of healthcare nationally.”
