Developing a Patient-Centered Approach to Population-Based Healthcare

The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model has emerged as a crucial component of the future healthcare delivery system. Its implementation alone, however, is not enough for healthcare facilities to ensure success over the long term; rather, it is one step in a transformative journey. This presentation defines a three-phased approach to the development and sustainability of a PCMH, which includes the implementation (learning), evolution (adopting), and integration (owning) phases. Furthermore, it explores simultaneous clinical and financial integration of the PCMH model to ensure success and sustainability in the near and long terms.
