NAPC joins other leaders at International Faculty of Primary Care meeting in USA

Healthcare leaders from UK, Ireland and USA will continue to progress the integrated care agenda as they come together as the International Faculty for Primary Care for a fourth time in Washington, USA this week.

Hosted by the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) on the eve of their Autumn conference, the Faculty will build on their previous three meetings which led to two publications Providing accountable care: Comparing the delivery of primary care in the UK and USA through accountable care systems and organisations and Achieving the Provision of Integrated Care as well as develop their seven-point plan.

They will share a range of international perspectives and hear from Regine Alders, Counsel for Health, Welfare and Sport to Canada and USA, Embassy of the Kingdom of Netherlands.

International meetings of the Faculty bring international leaders in healthcare together to establish evidence for accountable integrated care, exchange their experiences of different healthcare systems and share best practice in delivery from a primary care perspective. Through their work, the Faculty aims to support and facilitate integration within all types of healthcare systems internationally.

Founded in 2006, the Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) is a not-for-profit multi-stakeholder membership organization dedicated to advancing an effective and efficient health system built on a strong foundation of primary care and the patient-centered medical home. Representing a broad group of public and private organisations, the PCPCC’s mission is to unify and engage diverse stakeholders in promoting policies and sharing best practices that support growth of high-performing primary care and achieve the “Quadruple Aim”: better care, better health, lower costs, and greater joy for clinicians and staff in delivery of care.
