National Home-Based Primary Care Learning Network

The National Home-Based Primary Care Learning Network is a year-long participatory learning experience aiming to improve the care provided to homebound patients while promoting a culture of better care and continuous learning in home based medical care practices.

Learning Network participants are part of a vanguard movement to create a community of quality in home-based medical care.

National Home-Based Primary Care Learning Network 2020.

We are no longer accepting applications for participation in this year’s Learning Network. A new request for applications will be released in the fall.


The Learning Network

  • Provides transformational strategies and coaching support to help home-based primary care and palliative practices implement quality improvement principles and demonstrate high-value care.
  • Helps practices and clinicians connect and build a community in a practice-based learning network so they can together ask and answer important questions that work toward the goal of improving the care they provide and raise the field of home-based primary care.
  • Makes available to physicians a quality improvement activity that provides an opportunity for American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM)-certified physicians to earn 20 maintenance of certification (MOC) points.

The main focus of the Learning Network is for practices to improve the care provided in home-based medical care, help to create a culture of quality improvement and continuous learning in the field, and to create a community of quality in home-based medical care.

The Learning Network experience starts and ends with in-person meetings commencing and concluding the program.

Between in-person meetings, the Learning Network will facilitate a series of video conference interactive learning sessions, technical assistance, and access to web-based quality improvement tools. Teams will complete an initial assessment of their current practice, identify opportunities for improvement, and will work between learning sessions to meet their aims.
