Patient-Centered Medical Home
The emerging Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model was originally developed by the American Academy of Pediatrics in 1967 with the intent of reducing healthcare costs while improving outcomes and patient satisfaction.
Today, large numbers of PCMH programs are underway and early results have been promising. While it is understood that a patient's medical history and record stays with its "home," typically the primary care physician, PCMHs necessitate cross-collaboration among multiple providers and specialists, and liberate patient data from information silos. Interoperability will be important as PCMH programs throughout the United States solidify, focusing on coordination among community-based care professionals, other providers and payer organizations.
Health Access Solutions supports PCMH and other innovative models of care delivery. With our Coordinated Care Platform™, we enable collaboration and communication among patients, providers and payers as they strive to improve quality and manage costs.
