  • Barr M. The patient-centered medical home: aligning payment to accelerate construction. Med Care Res Rev. 2010 Aug;67(4):492-9. PMID: 20448252.
    Their article cites existing studies that supports the positive impact of the PCMH model of care. The author views PCMH as a motivation to the development of high-performing practices while mitigating the risk to clinics teams that undertake the transformation.  Even though the PMCH model has proven to have positive effects on quality, cost and patient/clinical team satisfaction, challenges remain that must be considered before adopting or implementing the model.  Lastly, the article emphasizes three phases to incorporate when aligning reimbursement with the PCMH model of care.

  • Chu C, Selwyn PA. An Epidemic in Evolution: The Need for New Models of HIVCare in the Chronic Disease Era. (2011). J Urban Health. Mar 1.
    This article identifies key determining factors responsible for driving the need for the new model of care, includes aging, long-surviving population; multiple co-morbidities; polypharmacy and the need for chronic disease management.  The author emphasizes the importance of fostering collaborations between community-based and primary care. This type of collaboration is viewed as an approach that combines the benefits of HIV as it relates to the multidisciplinary expertise found in the patient-centered approach.

  • Wagner EH, Coleman K, Reid RJ, Phillips K, Abrams MK, Sugarman JR. The Changes Involved in Patient-Centered Medical Home Transformation. Primary Care: Clinics in Office Practice. 2012 June; 39(2): 241-259.
    This article, published in Primary Care Clinics, describes the process used to identify eight change concepts and 32 key changes considered critical for the PCMH transformation. The change concepts identified are engaged leadership, quality improvement strategy, organized evidence-based, patient-centered interaction, enhanced access and care coordination. These change concepts promotes practice change and are used to guide the formulation and testing of specific practice changes at each specialized practice organization.  According to the article, the key changes should be viewed as opportunities for innovation and adaptation rather than prescriptions for implementation.  In agreement with existing studies, this article supports the PCMH model because it best meets the needs of patients with chronic illness.
