Patient-Centered Medical Home
As a patient, you may have a lot of questions about the patient-centered medical home (or PCMH) and what it means to you. The PCMH is an approach to healthcare that, according to the Institute of Medicine, “is respectful and responsive to individual patient preferences, needs, and values, and ensures that patient values guide all clinical decisions.” The PCMH is not a nursing home; it is a medical office or clinic that emphasizes the importance the physician-patient partnership.
This means that a PCMH empowers you as a patient. You, and, if applicable, your family, play an important role in your healthcare options and plans through open communication with your healthcare clinician.
