What is PCMH (Patient-Centered Medical Home)?
A Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of care that puts patients at the forefront of their care. PCMH uses a team based approach and emphasizes care coordination and communication across specialties to achieve excellent patient care experiences and help lower medical costs. Patient treatment is coordinated through a patient's primary care physician to ensure he or she receives the necessary care when and where they need it, in a manner they can understand.
