Top 4 Tech Tools in the Medical Home

Tech Tools Used in Medical Homes

Welcome to the first issue of Healthcare Performance Benchmarks.

Each weekly issue will provide benchmarks across a variety of healthcare trends — medical home, hospital readmissions, case management, healthcare utilization, health coaching and wellness, care transitions, healthcare information technology and much more. You'll get exclusive data from your peers — metrics and measures on current and planned programs, lessons learned and results from successful initiatives. In this inaugural issue, learn how healthcare technology is being utilized in the patient-centered medical home.

This week's challenge: The medical home care team provides patient-centered, coordinated and high-quality care for its members. We wanted to see which health technologies are being utilized in medical homes. Click here to view a printable version of the chart.

What We Learned: The Healthcare Intelligence Network Medical Homes in 2010 e-survey captured the dynamics of the PCMH experience from more than 156 healthcare organizations. According to respondents, the top four tech tools in use in the medical home model are:

  • EHRs: 69.8 percent
  • Registry: 65.1 percent
  • E-prescribing: 55.8 percent
  • E-mail/texts: 37.2 percent
