Medical Home Pilot Project in Penn. Achieves Mixed Results
A pilot program in Pennsylvania testing the so-called "patient-centered medical home" concept has elicited mixed results, prompting some to praise its effect on patient health and others to question its sustainability. A medical home is managed by a primary care provider and a group of health professionals who closely coordinate resources within a specific medical community. An analysis of the Pennsylvania pilot project recently appeared in a supplemental issue of the Annals of Family Medicine.
