The Patient-Centered Medical Home


A Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care by which a personal primary care physician, who has an ongoing trusted relationship with a patient, provides comprehensive and continuous care with care coordination to meet the patient’s multiple care needs including: wellness, risk reduction, preventive services, as well as acute, chronic, and end-of-life care. This model focuses on improving accessibility, comprehensiveness, collaboration, record-keeping, patient safety, and the quality of care for the patients treated within them.
