The Progress and Potential of Patient-Centered Medical Homes

Article

A patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a care environment based on evidence, driven by data, focused on wellness, and centered on the needs of the patient. This approach can help drive a healthier America, with fewer errors and less strain on our limited resources. Many forward-thinking organizations already have adopted this care model and discovered its benefits. Some have advanced even further, rising to the level of a technology-based PCMH with results that are path-breaking. In this paper, Sarah T. Corley, M.D., F.A.C.P., and Charles W. Jarvis, F.A.C.H.E., both of NextGen Healthcare, examine the PCMH model and share numerous examples of physician practices that used health information technology to maximize its benefits. A foreword is included from Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of the House; and Founder, Center for Health Transformation.
