The PCMH Model
The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a pioneering way of organizing primary care that emphasizes care coordination and communication Medical homes lead to higher quality and lower costs, and improve patients’ and providers’ experience of care to transform primary care into what patients want it to be. Although some physicians groups form a PCMH on their own, most do not. With cost-savings and member health outcomes at stake Claremont Partners can help your organization insist that physicians groups in your city embrace this innovative model of patient care.
The Medical Home inspires quality in care, cultivates more engaging patient relationships, and captures savings through expanded access and delivery options that align patient preferences with payer and provider capabilities.
The Patient Centered Medical Home is accountable for meeting the large majority of each patient’s physical and mental health care needs, including:
- prevention and wellness
- acute care
- chronic care
Providing comprehensive care requires a team of care providers. This team might include:
- advanced practice nurses
- physician assistants
- social workers
- care coordinators
