Benefits

Recent studies have found that with the implementation of a Patient’s Medical Home, primary care practices have experienced several improved outcomes. Many changes occurred in the early implementation stages and were sustained and increased over time. For many outcomes, the greater the extent of Patient’s Medical Home implementation or stage of maturity, the better the results (e.g., on emergency room visits, quality, cost savings, prevention).

The graphic below summarizes the results of a literature review on the impact of Patient’s Medical Home implementation.

• There is some variability in study quality, in effect size and in how the Patient’s Medical Home is defined. Study quality has not been evaluated in this summary.
