Introduction

MedHomeJPGPatient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is a model of primary health care that aims to ensure timely access to comprehensive, patient-centered care delivered by teams of pri­mary care providers and their staff, who coordinate all aspects of a patient’s health care needs. This includes the management of chronic conditions, reminders of needed checkups and tests, and care transitions to and from specialist and hospital visits. The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) encourages all Section 330 funded health centers to become recognized or accredited as a PCMH. CHCACT provides CT FQHCs with technical assistance and support to facilitate their journey toward a PCMH.  This includes:
  1. Providing education and training opportunities through webinars, face-to-face meetings, and one-on-one technical assistance.
  2. Creating opportunities to share and collaborate with one and other through the PCMH Message Board and monthly Peer to Peer Conference Calls.
  3. Disseminating existing PCMH tools and resources through the PCMH Resource Library.
  4. Coordinating state and national level support and resources to maximize impact and minimize burden to CT FQHCs.
