Walter Kopp, President of Medical Management Services, San Anselmo, CA, and advisory board member of the Center for Healthcare Management, and Professor Janus, Director of the Center for Healthcare Management jointly key-noted the Bosch Foundation’s PORT conference.
They asked whether patient-oriented care in the US can be considered a partnership of equals or rather a business imperative. The main drivers towards patient orientation as well as cultural and professional barriers were at the core of their presentation. Special features included the patient centered medical home and best practice case studies.
With the PORT – Patient-Oriented Centers for Primary and Long-Term Care program, the Robert Bosch Stiftung aims to support the (continued) development and setting up of local, comprehensive, and outstanding health centers in Germany; these centers should be able to meet the primary and long-term care needs of entire regions.
