National Committee for Quality Assurance PCMH Documentation

The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a health care setting that facilitates partnerships between individual patients and their personal clinicians, and when appropriate, the patient’s family. Care is facilitated by registries, information technology, exchange of health information and other means to ensure that patients get the indicated care, when and where they need and want it, in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner.In the search for higher-quality, more affordable health care, the PCMH has rapidly gained momentum. Building on decades of innovation, this model of adult and pediatric primary care continues to generate attention. Clinicians, professional societies, employers and purchasers, insurers, government and consumer organizations recognize the PCMH as a promising alternative to the nation’s costly, fragmented delivery system.
