  • Today is the “Tell us a Story” deadline! Don’t forget to submit anecdotes that show the value of CCNC in the five categories of patients; initiatives; partnership; outcomes and practice support. There’s a $50 prize for the best story in each category. Just get your stories to Paul Mahoney as soon as possible. (If you have good stories, but need a bit more time, let him know.)

  • PCMH news:
    • The long-awaited PCMH 2011 Workbook is now live on the CCNC website. Many thanks to Dr. Chip Watkins for assembling this great “how-to” package for practices seeking NCQA PCMH recognition.
    • The PCMH 2001 Webinars have also begun. Webinar number one was held by Dr. David Halpern on November 9. Video and materials from that webinar are available on the PCMH Central.
  • Mark Your Calendar!

  • ResourceOne site development continues. We’re continuing to add new materials to CCNC’s online/on-demand site for marketing collateral. Brochures include a CCNC overview, Pregnancy Medical Home, First in Health and Behavioral Care. Next week, we’ll add a piece on Palliative Care. Let us know what other subjects and pieces are of interest.
