Medical Homes Survey: Primary care with a personal touch – Modern Healthcare

Medical Homes Survey reveals diverse settings, but single goal: Increase quality of care.

When primary-care physicians needed to go somewhere new to revitalize their field, they found that there was no place quite like the patient-centered medical home: A practice model that emphasizes care coordination, increased access and enhanced doctor-patient communication—all with an emphasis on continuous quality improvement.

Modern Healthcare’s second annual Medical Homes Survey, conducted June 25-Sept. 28, drew responses from 29 organizations. The survey sample illustrates the wide variety of settings among the 4,870 sites that have been recognized as medical homes. One survey response came from an organization with a staff of 350 doctors, and another came from a solo practice. The largest group in the survey has an enrolled patient population of 939,000 while the smallest has 823. One thing they have in common is a desire to increase the quality of care by advancing an old-fashioned concept that is often enhanced by the newest technology.
