Johann Chanin, Senior Consultant
RN, MSN, PCMH CCE
Johann has more than ten years of experience with the medical home model and care coordination with the health home neighborhood. While employed at the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) she led the development of evaluation programs for both primary care and specialty care practices (Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) and Patient- Centered Specialty Practice (PCSP). Considered an expert in the medical home model, Johann presents nationally on patient-centered care and collaboration between patients and the care team. She consults with the NCQA education staff on upcoming educational programs for practices and Patient-Centered Medical Home Certified Content Experts (PCMH CCEs).
She is currently a member of an NCQA three-year oncology pilot project research team funded by the Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI). Johann focuses on training and facilitation of the practice transformation. The purpose of the research is to evaluate practice transformation and its impact on cost, quality, patient experience of care. The pilot sites are expected to conduct periodic self-evaluation against NCQA’s Patient-Centered Oncology Practice standards, a modified version of the NCQA’s standards for specialty practices.
Her background as a hospital-based clinical nurse specialist and a health care researcher provide her with an understanding of the challenges associated with evaluation of clinicians and practices. Johann earned a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science in Nursing at the University of Michigan.
