The Patient Centered Medical Home & Specialty Physicians

One particular area where the Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model requires further development and testing is the integration of the care model with specialty and subspecialty practices.

This model development is being addressed by the Council of Specialty Societies (CSS) PCMH Workgroup, and through collaborative initiatives between ACP and various specialty and subspecialty societies.

New Study: Total Cost of Care Lower among Medicare Fee-for-Service Beneficiaries Receiving Care from Patient-Centered Medical Homes

August 9, 2014: A new, independent research study, conducted by RTI International and published in the Health Services Research journal, adds to the evidence that accredited patient-centered medical homes (PCMHs) deliver lower cost and drive more appropriate health care utilization. The study focused on participants in the Medicare Fee-for-Service (FFS) program, comparing 308 PCMHs recognized by the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) with a sample of nearly 2,000 non-accredited PCMHs across three years, beginning in July of 2008.
