The patient-centered medical home has been defined as “a model for care provided by physician practices aimed at strengthening the physician-patient relationship by replacing episodic care based on illnesses and patient complaints with coordinated care and a long-term healing relationship.” This approach to care is intended to broaden access to primary care while enhancing care coordination.
The medical home model is based on the premise that when patients have a single provider responsible for coordinating their care, treatment costs are lowered and clinical outcomes improve. Patients express a greater satisfaction and better adherence with their care plan because they are involved in treatment decision making. This involvement is possible because the primary care provider coordinates the patient’s care across the continuum of services that he or she might receive. Utilizing technology such as electronic health records (EHR), health information exchanges (HIE), and patient registries create efficient processes that in turn help to reduce duplication of services and to enhance communication across the continuum.
Who Should Attend: CMOs, Medical Directors, Quality Officers, Nurse Managers, and Clinical staff.
