Earning PCMH recognition is a distinction in which a practice can take pride. The NCQA Patient Centered Medical Home is a model of primary care that combines teamwork and information technology to improve care, improve patients’ experience of care and reduced cost. Medical Homes foster ongoing partnership between patients and their personal clinicians, instead of approaching care as a sum of episodic office visits. Each patient’s care is overseen by clinician-led care teams that coordinate treatment across the healthcare system. Research shows that Medical Homes can lead to higher quality and lower costs and can improve patient and provider reported experiences of care.
