What is Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH)? 

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model is an approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children, adolescents, and adults. The PCMH is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between patients and their personal physicians, and when appropriate, the patient's family.  A PCMH integrates patients as active participants in their own health and wellbeing.  Patients are cared for by a physician who leads the medical team that coordinates all aspects of preventive, acute and chronic needs of patients.  A PCMH offers: 

  • Access to a personal physician who leads the care team within a medical practice
  • A whole-person orientation to providing patient care
  • Integrated and coordinated care
  • Focus on quality and safety 

What is the goal of a PCMH? 

The goal of PCMH is to improve the quality, effectiveness, and efficiency of care and to ensure that the activities within the practice are focused on meeting patient needs first. The PCMH model seeks to foster a relationship of trust between the care team and the patient, and to actively engage patients as partners in their health care.  The PCMH seeks to better manage the health of patients to avoid hospitalizations, proactively reach out to patients for key preventative care, better manage care, manage costs and assist patients in monitoring and managing their chronic conditions.
