What’s a patient-centered medical home?

Written by Diane Archer

What’s a Patient Centered Medical Home? It is not a place.  It is a type of medical practice where doctors collaborate to offer patients good coordinated care and engage patients and their families in their care.Fact:  Evidence suggests that patients who get their care from doctors and other care providers organized to offer them a “medical home” get better care.

Who provides your care in a medical home?  A team of doctors, nurses, and other care providers work with you and your family to understand and address your health care needs and help you best care for yourself.  To read more about how a patient-centered medical home works from the National Partnership for Women and Families, click here.
