What is PCMH?

The Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) program is an innovative care delivery model that emphasizes evidence-based health care coordination and increased communication between patients and healthcare providers. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality describes the patient-centered medical home as encompassing five functions and attributes:

  1. Comprehensive care
  2. Patient-centered care
  3. Coordinated care
  4. Accessible services
  5. Ongoing commitment to quality and safety

Patient-centered medical homes can help facilitate more effective partnerships between physicians, patients, and caregivers by creating a central setting that is focused on giving patients the right type of care when and where they need it.
