Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a healthcare delivery model that emphasizes comprehensive, coordinated, and patient-centered care. It is a team-based approach to healthcare that is led by a primary care physician who works with other healthcare professionals to provide coordinated and integrated care to patients.

Quality and Safety

The patient-centered medical home demonstrates a commitment to quality and quality improvement by ongoing engagement in activities such as using evidence-based medicine and clinical decision-support tools to guide shared decision making with patients and families, engaging in performance measurement and improvement, measuring and responding to patient experiences and patient satisfaction, and practicing population health management. Sharing robust quality and safety data and improvement activities publicly is also an important marker of a system-level commitment to quality.
