@rocky_mountain_group I thought it was only fair to warn you my experience with planning on being on the CPCC and then withdrawing. It is definitely true that you will be pushing employers to support primary care centered models. This will probably be a better fit for people like @drcflanagan than people like me who don't care two hoots about employer groups and what they do. Though I understand that for the good of the movement, somebody has to do this.
I emailed with a person doing training for CPCC and asked about the fact that each of us was supposed to be representing both insurance-based PCMH models and DPC when it's pretty obvious that each doctor prefers and knows more about one or the other depending on what we do. I wrote that I know all about PCMH but "I'd be giving a textbook lecture on one while having an in depth understanding of the other. Are we going to be speaking about multiple models and answering in depth questions and so forth? Working as a team with someone else? Going solo?"
The reply was, "PCMH is a robust care delivery model with a proven record and I would hope that you could find time to understand its scope and dimension in order to support it and talk about it as a Family Medicine “warrior". If you can not do that, I understand; however, it is a an essential criteria to be on the Speaker’s Bureau."
Maybe I was just reading between the lines, but I wasn't feeling like this would be a good fit for me. But others may find otherwise.
