Model Medical Homes: Benchmarks and
Case Studies in Patient-Centered Care

Healthcare is poised for a major transformation under the
Obama administration, and the patient-centered medical
home (PCMH) is increasingly positioned as a panacea for
primary care. Although awareness and adoption of the PCMH
has increased greatly in recent years, many healthcare
organizations are only beginning to familiarize themselves
with the principles and benefits of patient-centered care.

centered medical home model of care. This exclusive 65-page
report analyzes the responses of more than 220 healthcare organizations to HIN's 2009
Industry Survey on the Patient-Centered Medical Home Model.
