What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?

June 28, 2013 

The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a care delivery model whereby patient treatment is coordinated through a primary care physician to ensure patients receive the necessary care when and where they need it.  PCMHs are composed of teams of health professionals that provide a comprehensive set of medical services and the primary care physician typically receives payment for this coordination.  PCMHs were originally designed as Medicaid Medical Homes but the concept has been borrowed and used in private insurance models.
