2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: The Patient-Centered Medical Home

The patient-centered medical home model has been called a stepping stone to accountable care. The most recent market data from the Healthcare Intelligence Network found that 59 percent of existing medical homes are now or soon will be part of an accountable care organization (ACO).

That's just one of the findings in 2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: The Patient-Centered Medical Home, the Healthcare Intelligence Network's eagerly anticipated annual in-depth analysis of medical home awareness, adoption, tools, technologies, challenges, benefits and outcomes.

2012 Healthcare Benchmarks: The Patient-Centered Medical Home This 70-page report, now in its sixth year, is designed to meet business and planning needs of physician practices, clinics, health plans, managed care organizations, hospitals and others by providing critical benchmarks in medical home implementation and results.

This resource analyzes the responses of 95 healthcare organizations to HIN's sixth annual industry survey on the PCMH, administered in May 2012. It delivers the latest metrics and measures on current and planned PCMH initiatives, providing actionable data on PCMH effectiveness, targeted populations and conditions, medical home team members, health IT in use, reimbursement, ROI and much, much more.

New data in the 2012 edition: Best-in-class workflows, tools and processes in use in medical homes; tactics to overcome the challenges of medical home implementation.

This year's report continues to track medical home participation in ACOs; the explosion of practice-based case management in the medical home; medical home accreditation and recognition pathways; and the impact of the healthcare reform law that recently survived a U.S. Supreme Court challenge.

The 2012 edition also contains useful tables comparing key PCMH trends from 2009 through 2012, providing a valuable quick-reference to PCMH evolution in recent years.

This all-new research report is supported with more than 50 graphs and tables and delivers strategies and lessons learned from leading medical home adopters in their own words.

This report provides a high-level look at overall responses and also drills down to sector-specific views on PCMH activity as reported by responding hospitals and health plans in the following areas:
