Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is the model for a primary care practice that delivers all the core functions of primary healthcare. PCMH focuses on building better relationships between patients and their clinical care teams and has been shown to lower healthcare costs while improving outcomes for patients.
Why get certified as a PCMH? Strong financial incentives in the form of sharing in the savings realized by insurance payers are available to primary care practices that adopt the PCMH model.
What is necessary for PCMH Certification? In order to obtain certification, practices must meet certain criteria, including working with a certified electronic health records software (EHR), quality reporting and a qualified vendor to help you obtain and maintain certification. We can coordinate certification for your practice through a certified organization. In many cases, certification may be obtained free of charge.
