PCMH Approach

According to the American Academy of Family Physicians, a PCMH is a medical approach based on the following principals:

  • Each patient has an ongoing relationship with a physician

  • The personal physician leads a team of medical professionals in various areas

  • The personal physician is responsible for the entirety of the needs of the patient, and arranged qualified professionals as needed

  • All health services are accounted for across the whole health system

  • Ensuring all services are up to health standards and often exceed baseline requirements

  • Accessible care is provided through convenient hours, open scheduling and timely communication between patients and medical staff

  • A payment structure that meets patient needs and is clearly communicated by the health provider
