Work Your Way Down the To-Do Checklist for Becoming a Patient Centered Medical HomeBack
The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model enables the healthcare profession to refocus on the importance of primary care, especially when it comes to managing chronic diseases and patient care coordination. The result of this should be a healthcare system that is more satisfactory for:
Patients, who will be less likely to suffer the unfortunate consequences of unsynchronized care;
Physicians, who can improve the quality of their patients’ experiences, build a more efficient and productive practice, and realize financial benefits in the way of insurer incentives or increased reimbursements;
Insurers and employers, who may see a reduction in costs around major acute events thanks to PCMH doctors’ increased involvement with their patients and with those patients’ other healthcare providers.
