Proposed Project: Patient Centered Care Collaboration to Improve Minority Health, OMB# 0990-New, Office of Minority Health.
Abstract: The Office of Minority Health (OMH) in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office of the Secretary (OS) is requesting approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on new data collection activities for the Patient Centered Care Collaboration to Improve Minority Health project (PCCC). This dissemination and adoption initiative funded in 2010, under the ARRA, 2009, through the Office of Minority Health and the Agency for Health Care Quality supports dissemination and adoption priorities as outlined in the HHS Report to Congress on Comparative Effectiveness Research. The PCCC evaluation will assess whether disseminating a diabetes education intervention in a community based health clinic and offering a medication management and adherence intervention through home visits to seniors, improves the health and well being of racial and ethnic minority program participants; if the approach taken through the implementation of proven PCOR findings such as using community health workers and educators, and pharmacists to deliver the interventions improves the likelihood of patients changing their behaviors to improve their health status; and to determine if participants learned new information and skills that would help them to manage their health conditions and improve their health status.
