Center for Practice Improvement & Innovation's (CPII) Two Year Study of 34 PCMHs
In an attempt to unveil common problems for small practices and offer solutions, ACP's CPII visited 34 practices across the U.S. over a two-year period. Members of the center’s three-person team assessed each practice on a variety of factors, such as scheduling, work flow, documentation and safety. They offered individual recommendations and resources for improvement, then returned to the practices a year later to measure results.

In a series of six articles (January 2008 to June 2008), ACP Internist explores the issues the team encountered during its visits, the advice given, and how the practices responded.

Introduction to the Patient Centered Medical Home Video

Patients are curious about what a "Patient Centered Medical Home" is and this video was produced by Emmi Solutions in partnership with the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) in an attempt to answer their questions. Many practices already provide the type of care outlined in the video, and it is by no means meant to be critical to those physicians who are doing their best to provide patient-centered care under the current structure.
