Michigan AgrAbility staff reached out to acquaint two new service providers with the Michigan AgrAbility program. The newly designed Michigan AgrAbility brochure and the 2013-2014 Michigan AgrAbility annual report were sent to the Michigan Chapter of the National Association of Social Workers to share with the social workers in the rural /farming community they serve. Additionally, Michigan AgrAbility staff sent the brochure and annual report to the Michigan Primary Care Transformation Project (MiPCT), to acquaint practitioners in rural communities who serve patients in the farming communities. The MiPCT is a three-year multi-payer project aimed at improving health in the state, making care more affordable, and strengthening the patient-care team relationship. MiPCT is state-wide in scope and is the largest patient-centered medical home (PCMH) project in the nation. Participating payers (Medicare Fee-for Service, Medicaid Managed Care, Blue Care Network, and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan PPO to date) are providing financial support to approximately 400 primary care practices and 1900 primary care physicians and mid-level providers affiliated with one of 35 physician/physician hospital organizations (POs/PHOs).
