Sample text

Naturally, as you read this text, you will no doubt come up with your own questions about implementation and the “witches behind the trees” (aka the “devils in the details”). Thus as you begin to think about the use of some of the technologies described herein, you will likely ask the question, “What about the government and its many ­privacy regulations? ” This is a very legitimate ­question. Indeed, HIPAA and other privacy regulations could be the bane of this concept were it not for the ingenuity of technology providers.

However, in order to offer as broad a view and as deep an understanding as possible, all the components of a PCCN are described herein. You might need only a few, or only one of these components. Therefore, when reading this text, don’t be alarmed if the need of your community would not support a massive technology and governance implementation. Likewise, you should not expect to have to deploy the entire infrastructure at once, nor will your participating ­population go from zero to 100 percent overnight.

Instead, you should seek to add mental health resources to the clinical resources, and use communal resources only insofar as they can aid in the care and management of these special patients. Indeed, though not explicitly mentioned in this text, mental health expertise and care can be added to a PCCN, or ­perhaps more appropriately a sub-PCCN that focuses ­specifically on patients with these mental health issues. The structure, volumes, capacity, and resource requirements of such a ­specialized PCCN might be very different from others, but the overall model and its goals and objectives can still be attained.
