The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) has been proposed as a model for achieving the kind of responsive, effective health care that is urgently needed.

Evidence shows many benefits to establishing a strong, primary care-based health system, including better health outcomes at lower cost. Health systems across the country have sought the benefits, and recognition, that a PCMH can garner.

MacColl’s work has guided practices through the transformation necessary to become a PCMH.

Our interest in transformation began with teaching the elements of the Chronic Care Model. Our commitment to transformation continues now via several initiatives involving the concepts of the patient-centered medical home. MacColl has developed a PCMH change concept model, the PCMH-A, an assessment tool, and other materials in use by clinicians throughout the country.
