PMH in British Columbia
On April 29th, 2015 the BC College of Family Physicians hosted a PMH symposium in Vancouver titled Collaborating on a Vision for Integrated Family Practice in BC. The symposium was an opportunity to explore interest in collaborating on implementation of the Patient’s Medical Home model in BC.
BC is now moving forward with plans to initiate team-based primary care province-wide, BCCFP is joining the General Practice Services Committee (GPSC) PMH Implementation and Design Team that will begin this work over the summer of 2016. A new way forward in the province, this move towards team-based care is still evolving with the full support of the BC College of Family Physicians. It’s still early days on this new path, but first steps towards this evolution are encouraging though it must be recognized that there is still a ways to go on this journey.
