Patient Centered Medical Home

What is a Patient Centered Medical Home, and How Can It Affect You?

The NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of care. Patient Centered Medical Homes build better relationships between people and their clinical care teams.

Research shows that Patient-Centered Medical Homes:

  • Improve Quality: Patients get the treatment that they need, when they need it.
  • Reduce costs: They prevent expensive and avoidable hospitalizations, emergency room visits and complications.  This is especially true for patients with complex chronic conditions.
  • Improve the patient experience: They provide both the personalized, comprehensive coordinated care that patients want, and the system and structures that help staff work more efficiently.
