Jefferson School of Population Health sponsors seminars on health and wellness and medical homes

Philadelphia, PA – Patient-centered medical homes — one of the most exciting concepts in health care aimed at improving quality — is one of the many subjects being addressed at a national meeting being held today in Philadelphia. Independence Blue Cross (IBC) chief medical officer Richard L. Snyder, M.D. and other local leaders in the health care field will participate in a panel to discuss how medical homes help patients better manage their chronic conditions, improve care coordination through a team approach, and enhance patient and physician satisfaction.

These conferences bring together leading authorities and practitioners in health care for three days in Philadelphia. Dr. Snyder’s session will focus on the medical home and will discuss how the model is working, proven outcomes, lessons learned, and issues and challenges that lie ahead. These two conferences attract a diverse group of business and health leaders including employers, health plans, practicing physicians and hospital executives, and government agencies, all with the common goal of transforming health care in the United States.
