Is yours one of the many practices moving toward becoming a Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH)?

A recent Medical Group Management Association survey of primary care and multispecialty practices found that nearly 70% already were in the process of changing, or interested in becoming, a PCMH. More than 20% were accredited or recognized as a PCMH by a national organization.

Nearly 36% of family practices were interested in becoming PCMHs, the most of any category, followed by multispecialty practices with primary and specialty care and pediatrics.

"The study shows that practices want to become a PCMH to improve the health of their patients and provide more patient-focused care," the report says.
