A patient-centered medical home is a more effective and efficient model of health care delivery, providing ongoing, comprehensive patient care while delivering better health outcomes and lower costs. It is an essential part of the solution to the current fragmented health care system in the United States.
In a patient-centered medical home: * Patients have a relationship with a personal physician. * A practice-based care team takes collective responsibility for the patient's ongoing care. * The care team is responsible for providing and arranging all the patient's health care needs. * Patients can expect care that is coordinated across care settings and disciplines. * Quality is measured and improved as part of daily work flow. * Patients experience enhanced access and communication. * The practice uses electronic health records, registries, and other clinical support systems.
