What is the Physician Group Incentive Program (PGIP)? PGIP is an incentive program that connects Physician Organizations (POs) from across Michigan to encourage information sharing about various aspects of health care. The Upper Peninsula Health Group (UPHG) PO PGIP Provider Resource Services Team works with all eligible providers to help build upon their current processes to achieve Patient Centered Medical Homes and Value Based Reimbursement (VBR).
What is Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)?
PCMH is a health care management model developed to strengthen the doctor-patient relationship and improve health care quality by helping primary care doctors and their health care teams more effectively manage their patients’ care. To accomplish this goal, PCMH practices use such features as e-prescribing, chronic disease management, 24-hour access to a clinical decision-maker (MD, DO, PA, or NP) and development of patient registries to track and monitor care. Health care teams work closely with patients to help them set individualized health goals and encourage them to take a more active role in their own health management. To achieve this office practice transformation is crucial and can take up to 3-5 years.
