What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
A patient-centered medical home integrates patients as active participants in their own health and well-being. Patients are cared for by a personal physician who leads the medical team that coordinates all aspects of preventive, acute and chronic needs of patients using the best available evidence and appropriate technology. These relationships offer patients comfort, convenience and optimal health throughout their lifetimes.
