What are the benefits of PCMH?
In addition to overall better quality of care for patients, practices that achieve Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) Recognition may benefit in multiple ways, including:
- Improved efficiency and lower practice costs. PCMH guidelines can be used to help streamline care coordination and care management.
- Enhanced reimbursement support. Federal, state and commercial payers may offer incentive programs and greater support to practices that receive PCMH recognition.
- Additional recognition. Accreditation indicates to patients that a practice offers enhanced services and higher quality of care.
- Streamlined participation in other value-based care models. The core competencies to becoming a patient-centered medical home can help you succeed with other value-based care initiatives and programs such as Comprehensive Primary Care Plus (CPC+) and accountable care organizations (ACOs).
