What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?
A Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a team based initiative committed to comprehensive and continuous care of patients. In a Patient Centered Medical Home patients are taught more about their diseases or unhealthy behaviors and how to work with and sometimes overcome them. This not only reaches into education, but also impacts appointment availability and the overall patient experience.
