Top 5 Ways to Engage Patients in Medical Homes
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 how healthcare companies engage and educate patients in their medical homes. 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.
