What is a Patient-Centered Medical Home?
For the last five years, the Blues in Michigan have led the country in designating Patient-Centered Medical Homes. In addition to improving the quality of care, over the past three years, PCMH practices in Michigan have proven to reduce costs by $26.37 per member per month medical cost for adults. This sounds great on paper, but what does this effort mean for patients? In this podcast, Dr. David Share, Senior Vice President, Value Partnerships, BCBSM explains what PCMH is, why this is good for patients, and what patients can expect when they go to a PCMH practice.
