What is a Patient Centered Medical Home?

You are here

The patient-centered medical home (PCMH) is not a place - it is a model of primary care that promotes accessible, comprehensive, coordinated care and encourages patients and families to be actively involved in health care decisions.  The model is patient-focused and looks at prevention, overall wellness and appropriate treatment.

Patient-centered medical home teams are led by a qualified provider that the patient chooses. This provider coordinates with a team of people who know the patient and work together to provide the best possible care.

Our Mission

The mission of the Care Transformation Collaborative is to lead the transformation of primary care in Rhode Island in the context of an integrated health care system; and to improve the quality of care, the patient experience of care, the affordability of care, and the health of the populations we serve.
