Patient Centered Medical Home White PaperBack
Almost 50,000 clinicians today are certified in this model. While the NCQA Healthcare Business Solutions s one of the better-known PCMH standards, other organizations also offer paths to Patient Centered Medical Home status, such as The Joint Commission. By and large they emphasize the same values: PCMH calls upon primary care physicians to coordinate, communicate and collaborate with all the other parties servicing their patients – specialist surgeons, hospitals, rehab facilities, home health care operators, pharmacies and more. It also demands more seamless interaction among a practice’s internal care teams and with patients to ensure better facilitated and more continuous care.
