The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a model of care that is intended to optimize the patient experience within and beyond the primary care setting. As a patient-centered care model, the PCMH is typically viewed as a cornerstone of population health management. In this context, the PCMH can be a vital hub within a broader ‘medical neighborhood’ that emphasizes access, quality, continuity, and care coordination. Today the PCMH model is one of the most widely adopted and highly studied care models in the health landscape.
Community Health Solutions has substantial experience and an extensive toolkit for helping primary care practices build capacity for PCMH. For practices seeking to achieve or sustain NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition, we have specially trained staff and a detailed toolkit designed to streamline the capacity building process. We also support practices that aim to develop specific aspects of the PCMH model without necessarily seeking formal recognition. We are especially adept at helping safety net providers navigate their way through PCMH development. We help primary care practices:
- Define objectives for PCMH development based on assessment of current capabilities;
- Design strategies for building PCMH capabilities;
- Build organizational capacity for implementing the PCMH model; and
- Execute through the process of applying for PCMH recognition.
