Top 5 Medical Home Strategies
for Patient Engagement

Top 5 Medical Home Strategies for Patient Engagement This Week's Challenge: The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model has been called a stepping stone to accountable care. The most recent market data from the Healthcare Intelligence Network found that one of the top ways to educate and engage patients in PCMHs is by training physicians to do so. We wanted to see which other strategies are being used to educate and engage patients in the medical home.

What We Learned: HIN's sixth annual industry survey on the PCMH, administered in May 2012, linked the rise in medical home starts over the last six years to a steady climb in patient satisfaction. The survey captured data on medical home adoption, staffing, technologies, and other key medical home metrics. According to 95 healthcare companies who responded to the survey, the top five strategies used to educate and engage patients in PCMHs are:

  • Physician training: 79.3 percent

  • Health coaching: 75.9 percent

  • Patient outreach: 65.5 percent

  • Online tools: 44.8 percent

  • Shared decision-making: 44.8 percent
