Topic: Medical Homes
A patient centered medical home (PCMH) is a health care setting that seeks to deliver care in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner through a collection of strategies like registries, information technology, health information exchange, and other means. PCMH is an accreditation program that requires compliance with multiple criteria in order to be recognized as such under new health care reform and reimbursement policies.
