Sample FY 2022 HCCN Project Work Plan Update
|Objective Title||Objective 1: Patient Engagement|
|Objective Description||Increase the percentage of PHCs that support patients’ and families’ participation in their health care through expanded use of integrated digital health tools (e.g., electronic messages sent through patient portals to providers, telehealth visits, and remote monitoring devices).|
|Baseline Percentage||60% (Prepopulated from your FY 2022 PWP)|
|Target Percentage||100% (Prepopulated from your FY 2022 PWP)|
|Baseline Data Source||PHC patient engagement data, which includes patient portal data, telehealth provider consultation data, and remote monitoring device data. Remote monitoring devices used include blood pressure cuffs, pulse oximeters, and glucometers.|
|Current Denominator||20 (Prepopulated with the total number of PHCs in the Progress Report Table)|
|Current Percentage||60% (Calculated as follows: Current numerator ÷ Current denominator x 100)|
|Progress Toward Target Percentage||0% (Calculated as follows: (Current Percentage - Baseline Percentage) ÷ (Target Percentage– Baseline Percentage) × 100)|
|Progress Toward Target Percentage Narrative*||In the first six months, we worked with the 8 PHCs that haven’t met the 80% threshold to assess what T/TA support is needed to meet the objective. By July 31, 2023, 5 PHCs will receive in-person trainings and outreach efforts to increase patient awareness of the benefits of using integrated digital tools. These activities are expected to increase the number of PHCs that meet or exceed the 80% threshold.|
|Supporting Organization*||ABC PCA Inc.|

|Activity Name||Patient Engagement|
|Activity Description||Provide on-site trainings for PHC staff to continuously improve the rates of patient engagement. Trainings will focus on providing effective patient education at every appropriate interaction during a virtual or office visit to highlight the benefits of the use of their patient portals, and remote monitoring devices (e.g., during scheduling, in the exam room, at checkout).|
|Person/Group Responsible||J. Jones, Quality Improvement Team Lead|
|Start Date||August 1, 2022|
|End Date||January 31, 2023|
|Activity Progress Update*||In coordination with ABC PCA, we provided 3 on-site trainings for PHC staff on how to increase patient engagement. Topics included community outreach efforts, patient education on the importance of using digital health tools, and building collaborative relationships between staff and patients to get the maximum benefits from these resources. Each training included interactive activities for providers, which allowed them to practice how they would engage with patients on how to use and maintain their monitoring devices at home, or how easy it is to reach a doctor via the patient portal.|
|Anticipated Progress*||We anticipate conducting 2 additional onsite trainings before July 31, 2023, and it is our intention that these trainings will lead to 2 more PHCs achieving the threshold by this date.|
