Why PMH and Getting Started

Why Physicians Are Interested in the Patient's Medical Home

In one word, change. The health and social needs of patients and communities are changing. The health system itself also continually evolves to meet new demands. The health workforce, including professional and support staff have changing responsibilities and capabilities. Physicians themselves have changing expectations of their role in providing care to patients.

The Patient's Medical Home (PMH) Helps Physicians:

  • Organize and prioritize activities to best meet the needs of their patients in a complex ever changing healthcare environment.
  • Deliver the care that they want to deliver, practice with less stress, and develop deeper relationships with their patients and communities.
  • Better adapt to the system that is changing around them.
