Both the PCN and practice team Patient's Medical Home assessment tools were adapted from the
Safety Net Medical Home Initiative (SNMHI) to fit the Alberta context. The Safety Net Medical Home Initiative was a national Patient-Centred Medical Home (PCMH) demonstration to help 65 primary care safety net sites become high-performing medical homes and improve quality, efficiency and patient experience
NOTE: the assessment has been designed to be administered with the support of a facilitator. Please speak with your PCN to learn more about local supports available to physicians and practice teams.
The assessment is divided into 3 parts:
Supporting Resources for the Practice Assessment
This is a new quality improvement measurement tool
co-designed by ACTT and primary care physicians to help clinics assess
their progress on their PMH implementation journey. A literature review
and environmental scan were conducted to inform the development
of the tool. Initial testing of the tool was completed in June 2020.
While more testing is planned before the tool is finalized, further development is currently paused. The initial version of the prototype
is available for PCNs and clinics to use upon request. Please direct
queries to Wanda Truong for more information.
