Primary Care

 

Patient Centered Medical Homes improve the care  patients receive by offering enhanced access to care and increased Primary Care Manager continuity, and by promoting patient- and family-centered evidence-based health care.

 

Patient Centered Medical Homes allow providers and patients to take a more proactive approach to health care, with a stronger focus on prevention. The medical home can reduce the percentage of specialty referrals and result in a PCMH team providing the needed care in one visit.
