Care Coordination Institute (CCI) Labs and the American Medical Association (AMA)
This six month program uses the "M.A.P framework" created by the AMA and Johns Hopkins Medicine. M.A.P stands for: Measure blood pressure accurately, Act rapidly to manage uncontrolled blood pressures, and Partner with patients, families and communities.
Center for Disease Control Community Transformation Grant (subcontract to CCI thru SC DHEC)
Owens Goff, PI; B. Egan, Project Leader
The South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control’s (DHEC), Bureau of Community Health and Chronic Disease Prevention proposes Statewide Implementation of the CDC Community Transformation Grant program. We will implement quality evidence- and practice-based policy, environmental, programmatic, and infrastructure changes that will help prevent heart attack, stroke, cancer, and other leading causes of death across the state of South Carolina.
South Carolina Sickle Cell Disease Access to Care Pilot Program (SC2)
PI: Julie Kanter, M
Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is the most common inherited blood disorder in the United States. Despite improvements in childhood care, it remains a life-limiting disease with multi-organ complications that reduces the quality of life. The South Carolina Sickle Cell Disease Access to Care Pilot Program (SC2) will increase access to both primary and specialty care for all persons with SCD in South Carolina through a hub and spokes care delivery and education model using a collective impact approach. This approach will harness the resources of the state to approach SCD and also use a technologic based approach to increase education of providers. USC-CCI and MUSC will work together to implement the SC2 through collaborative site recruitment, data collection and analysis that demonstrate the success of SC2.
CDC/DHEC Contract CY-4-509 1305 Supplemental
PI: Brent Egan, MD
CDC has provided funding to DHEC to implement evidence and practice-based interventions to improve physical activity and nutrition, reduce obesity, and prevent and control diabetes, heart disease, and stroke with a focus on high blood pressure. CCI has contracted with DHEC to make available services to medical practices in targeted counties throughout the state of South Carolina. This project assists DHEC Health Systems to promote accredited hypertension and diabetes self-management education and training programs in SC. CCI collects EHR data among network medical practices for the treatment of high blood pressure and diabetes through the adoption of provider feedback and monitoring of standardized quality measures in practice dashboards that include National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA) and Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) measures. The outcomes of this program are expected to increase state, community, worksite, school, and ECE environments that promote and reinforce healthful behaviors and practices across the life span related to diabetes, cardiovascular health, physical activity and obesity.
CDC/SC DHEC PHASE 1422
PI: Brent Egan, MD
The DHEC Bureau of Community Health and Chronic Disease Prevention, Division of Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity, and School Health will work with USC-CCI to reduce the complications, burden and disability caused by common chronic diseases by partnering to improve the quality of chronic disease care delivered and improve the leading health indicators of the patient population. CCI has contracted with SC DHEC to make available services to medical practices in targeted counties throughout the state of South Carolina. CCI collects EHR data among network medical practices for the treatment of high blood pressure and diabetes through the adoption of provider feedback and monitoring of standardized quality measures in practice dashboards that include National Committee of Quality Assurance (NCQA) and Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) measures.
Brief, Novel Smoking Cessation in Primary Care: A Comparative Effectiveness Trial
PI: Matthew Carpenter, MD
This 5-year grant from NIDA tests a brief intervention for smoking cessation within the context of a primary care setting. The primary care setting offers a powerful opportunity to identify smokers and engage them in the quitting process, with the ultimate goal to promote quit attempts and cessation and lower the burden of preventable disease. Participants are drawn from the CCI network of primary care practices that has established an infrastructure in clinical research. Participants are recruited by clinic personnel within a primary care setting, given a brief intervention to quit smoking and then tracked for 6 months to assess outcomes. CCI manages clinic payment for participation as well as data collection to monitor progress.
CDC/SC DHEC Cooperative Agreement
PI: Brent Egan, MD
This project focuses on using chronic disease and health proportion functions of epidemiology and surveillance to provide the data and information necessary to maximize strategic planning activities, and the impact and reach of efforts to crate save and healthy community environments, especially those directed towards disparate populations and rural communities. CCI engages with public health partners to address chronic disease and health promotion by focusing on environmental approaches that promote health and reinforce helpful behaviors stateside. CCI provides reports using aggregate CCI Network data to improve the effective delivery and use of clinical and preventive services in order to reduce disease, detect disease early, reduce or eliminate risk factors and mitigate or manage complications, especially those directed towards disparate populations.
