What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?

You are here

The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is not a place - it is a model of primary care that promotes accessible, comprehensive, coordinated care and encourages patients and families to be actively involved in health care decisions.  The model is patient-focused and looks at prevention, overall wellness and appropriate treatment.

Patient-centered medical home teams are led by a qualified provider that the patient chooses. This provider coordinates with a team of people who know the patient and work together to provide the best possible care.
