Patient-Centered Medical Home

MaineHealth/MHACO Patient-Centered Medical Home

The Patient-Centered Medical Home is a team-based model of providing care in a coordinated, consistent and efficient way. Providing patients the best care when and where they want it requires teams to actively look for improvement opportunities to create efficient work flow, satisfied staff, and effective communication with patients and other providers.

MaineHealth has a strategic goal that all member-owned primary care practices will attain PCMH Level III NCQA Recognition by Sept. 30, 2017.

Background on the Patient-Centered Medical Home

Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) model originated from pediatricians focus on care for children with special needs. By collaborating primary care physician societies, the concept went further into development and eventually was articulated in the 2007 Joint Principles of Patient Centered Medical Home. This became the foundation of the NCQA PCMH 2011 standards.
