The Patient-Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) has released its annual report, published with support from the Milbank Memorial Fund. This year’s report provides new evidence that the patient-centered medical home (PCMH) improves care and reduces costs. The publication includes an aggregation of PCMH outcomes from a combination of 28 peer-reviewed studies, state government program evaluations, and industry reports, the largest number of PCMH evaluations in a single year. The data supports the assertion that the PCMH can lead to a reduction in health care costs, inappropriate emergency department utilization, and inpatient hospitalizations:
14 Peer-reviewed scholarly publications
7 State government reports
7 Industry reports
The report serves as a go-to resource for policymakers, providers, payers, and patients on the most recent evidence regarding the PCMH and its impact on the health care marketplace.
