Advanced Primary Care   PCMH  

Maryland Multi-Payor Patient Centered Medical Home Program

Overview

The Patient Centered Medical Home  (PCMH) is a model of primary care delivery designed to strengthen the patient clinician relationship by replacing episodic care with coordinated care and a long-term healing relationship. It can lower costs of care through its focus on patient self-management and engagement, rather than only disease treatment.

PCMH encourages teamwork and coordination among clinicians and support staff to give patients better access to care and to take a greater role in making care decisions. Key PCMH components include understanding patients’ preferences and culture, shared decision making between patient and clinician, and patients’ willingness to establish and work toward personal health goals. These concepts, endorsed in the Joint Principles of PCMH, have been adopted by national organizations such as the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American College of Physicians, and many other business and consumer organizations across the United States.
