Where to find care:
What is a patient-centered medical home?
The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a health care delivery model of care that puts patients at the forefront. PCMHs build better relationships between patients and their clinical care teams. Research shows that PCMHs improve quality and the patient experience, and increase staff satisfaction—while reducing health care costs. Practices that earn recognition have made a commitment to continuous quality improvement and a patient-centered approach to care.
National Committee for Quality Assurance
PCMH recognition is obtained through an evaluation process with the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA). The steps in this process are the most widely-used method to transform primary care practices into medical homes. Recognition is the result of proven transformation into a high-performing primary care practice.
