The Joint Commission (TJC) is now accepting applications from accredited ambulatory care organizations for a Primary Care Medical Home option (PCMH) that will launch in July 2011.
The PCMH is a delivery model that provides patients with coordinated care by a primary care physician and team of healthcare professionals. The model emphasizes improved communication among clinics, facilities, and healthcare professionals to improve patient satisfaction and health outcomes.
