The Value of becoming a Patient Centered Medical Home
Patient engagement is at the heart of a Patient Centered Medical Home. The PCMH model focuses on the whole patient with emphasis on accessible services, comprehensive team-based care, quality, and safety resulting in improved outcomes and higher patient satisfaction.
The primary care team is essential to providing comprehensive care. By focusing on patient health goals for a healthier lifestyle, preventative care to mitigate risk factors, and coordinated management of chronic disease for longevity and quality of life, this whole patient perspective is the heart of a Patient Centered Medical Home.
In this session, Kate Hill, VP of Clinic Division at The Compliance Team will discuss PCMH as a value-based strategy that is a very powerful step you can make to align with CMS’ move to a quality vs quantity reimbursement fee structure and how PCMH can provide incentives for better processes and better outcomes.
