Who Belongs on the Medical Home Team?

Who Belongs on the Medical Home Team? This Week's Challenge: The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) model of care is heavily supported in the Affordable Care Act, a favored model of integrated care delivery and a cornerstone of accountable care. We wanted to see which health professionals besides physicians are part of the PCMH team. Click here to view a printable version of the chart.

What We Learned: The Healthcare Intelligence Network's fifth annual Patient-Centered Medical Homes e-survey conducted in April 2011 revealed a growing awareness and adoption of the PCMH model as well as the challenges, cost and benefits of converting to a PCMH for 115 healthcare organizations. According to survey respondents, the top five professionals on the PCMH team are:

  • Nurse practitioners: 63.9 percent

  • Case managers: 52.8 percent

  • Medical assistants: 50 percent

  • RNs: 50 percent

  • Physician assistants: 47.2 percent
