Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification Support

    Patient-Centered Medical Home Certification Support

    Patient-centered medical homes are designed to improve health outcomes, particularly for patients with chronic conditions, in a cost effective manner, led by primary care physicians and a supporting team. Insurers and governmental payers are increasingly providing for additional reimbursement to support this new model of care. Since medical home development is new to many health care providers, they are seeking a partner to help achieve this accreditation.
