How?


Coordinators from eight of our regional partner sites participated in a 13-week practice facilitation training program. The trained coaches are the primary resource for the region’s PT program. Since practice transformation is highly impacted by state, local and regional policies, the coaches’ knowledge of their communities greatly enhances their ability to facilitate practice change. Each coach has developed a longitudinal relationship with their practice transformation site that includes in-depth need assessments and meetings with interdisciplinary teams of health care providers and clinic leadership on a regular basis. The clinic leadership, with the assistance of the PT coach, identified practice transformation goals for their site. The coach is responsible for coordinating TA and training requests to meet the identified goals, maintaining ongoing communication, and facilitating data collection to evaluate outcomes along the Continuum.
