What is the patient-centered medical home (PCMH)?

The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is a model of care practiced by primary care physicians (PCPs).

The PCP and his or her healthcare team—consisting of physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses and medical assistants—work directly with the patient to design a personalized care plan that encompasses his or her physical and behavioral/mental health needs.
