MCT2D requires that each physician organization appoint an Administrative Lead, a Clinical Champion, and a Data Lead.
Administrative Lead (estimated 5% FTE): The administrative lead will be responsible for the operations of the program. This would involve making sure any required documents are reviewed and signed (e.g. the participation agreement, data use agreement, business associates agreement) and having general oversight over the PO’s participation, including the participating practices. They would be responsible for organizing the team at their PO (e.g. coordinating with the clinical champion and data lead), and serve as the primary contact for the coordinating center, including participating in collaborative wide calls and meetings. The administrative lead will be responsible for sharing MCT2D information (such as upcoming meetings, important dates, etc.) from the coordinating center with participating practices and ensuring that practices meet MCT2D deliverables.
Clinical Champion (estimated 2.5% FTE) : The clinical champion, in conjunction with the administrative lead, will be responsible for disseminating performance, quality improvement, and educational information to sites and helping to advance best practices. The clinical champion would attend collaborative wide calls and meetings so that they can take what they’ve learned at those and educate participating sites, similar to the role of a clinical champion in other existing CQI programs. The clinical champion should support and co-lead meetings convened by the PO of participating sites to work on their MCT2D performance. This person could be the PO medical director, a pharmacist, a care manager, or other clinical staff within the PO.
Data Lead (estimated 2.5% FTE) :The data lead will be responsible for oversight of the data, including working with participating sites and PO to increase the number of data elements shared. They would ensure that data is meeting the coordinating center requirements for all participating practices, and would work with the Michigan Data Collaborative to develop and improve the data sharing process. They would also be responsible for working with practice liaisons to help solve any data-related issues at the practices and advance data sharing.
