Vision 

Patient-centered comprehensive and coordinated primary care services sustained through practice transformation and payment reform resulting in improved health for individuals and communities.

Mission

The Colorado Primary Care Collaborative (CPCC) is dedicated to advancing primary care via the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) and other value-based primary care models by focusing on delivery reform, payment reform, patient engagement, workforce training, and benefit redesign.

Values

  • Partnerships: The CPCC partners with the national PCPCC and establishes partnerships with providers and consumers of health care.
  • Advocacy: The CPCC achieves its local mission by advocating for and promoting primary care through support of the PCMH model, payment reform, and practice transformation to patients, businesses, health plans, and governments.
  • Quality health care: The CPCC values health care that is accessible, cost-effective, and demonstrates quality outcomes consistent with Triple Aims: cost effective, patient experience, and quality.
  • Patient engagement: The CPCC champions the involvement of patients and families in their health care.

Activities

  • To achieve our mission, we work in partnership with our members and fellow primary care advocates to promote the vision of the CPCC to patients, purchasers, businesses, health plans and government by:
  • Disseminating results and outcomes from medical home initiatives and clearly communicating their impact on patient experience, quality of care, population health and health care costs.
  • Advocating for public policy that advances and builds support for primary care and the medical home, including payment reform, patient engagement, employer benefit initiatives, and training the primary care workforce.
  • Convening health care experts, thought leaders, and consumers to promote learning, awareness, and innovation of comprehensive and coordinated primary care services and the medical home model.

Collins and Longmont.

Board certified in Family Medicine, a diplomat of the American Board of Family Medicine and a full time practicing physician, Dr. Flanagan has been a fixture in Colorado healthcare for more than fifteen years and was named to the 2014 Top 20 Who’s Who in Direct Primary Care in the US.

Dr. Flanagan graduated from the University of Nebraska Medical Center and completed his residency at St. Mary’s Family Medicine Program in Grand Junction, CO.  In addition to working as a Family Medicine physician, he has over fourteen years of experience as an emergency physician working in many underserved communities throughout Colorado and as far away as Iraq.

An accomplished healthcare visionary, Dr. Flanagan regularly contributes to policy discussions at the state and federal level to ensure healthcare providers have ample opportunity to deliver high quality, affordable and accessible care to families and businesses. He sits on the Steering Committee of the National Direct Primary Care Coalition and during their June 2014 Washington DC conference he had the opportunity to discuss DPC at the White House.  He has been invited to present his insights on the emergence and implementation of DPC to a wide range of groups, including medical students, residents and professional associations. His free time is spent enjoying his family and outdoor fitness pursuits in the Colorado Rockies.

Jamie Glover, MD, Colorado Springs
I am a family physician, wife, mom and veteran.  I served as a physician in the United States Air Force for nine years until 2008, practicing outpatient, hospital, obstetric, emergency and deployed medicine during that time. I was also on the teaching faculty at Eglin AFB Family Medicine Residency. After separating from the Air Force, I continued practicing medicine in varied settings as I followed my husband from state to state until his own retirement from the Air Force in 2015.

Those varied settings included medical practice for the un- and under-insured, HIV medicine, public health, palliative and hospice care, prison medicine, rural medicine, work in a privately-owned practice, work for a hospital-owned clinic, and work in a four-physician Direct Primary Care (DPC) clinic. I am currently the founder and solo-physician at my own DPC, Glover Family Medicine. I opened my doors in 2017. I am also currently appointed as an assistant clinical professor for the University of Colorado’s school of medicine.

​From my work in all of these settings, I have gained insight into many of the issues surrounding access to affordable primary care in our nation. I have lived and practiced in the Monument/Colorado Springs area since 2012 and we have chosen to settle here near our alma mater, the US Air Force Academy. I am ready to have my own clinic that cultivates a sense of community and where my patients have time to personally connect with me. We have two children. Our family enjoys supporting Air Force Academy athletics and living the mountain lifestyle.
