In this article, Ed Wagner and colleagues describe  three diverse SNMHI practices selected based on their improvement as measured by the PCMH-A (Patient-Centered Medical Home Assessment).  We interviewed 2-3 leaders from the each of 3 practices seeking information about their motivations for transforming, the methods used to make changes, and challenges and facilitators. Interview data were coded, themes developed, and conclusions drawn using qualitative research methods.

This is one of eight papers about the Safety Net Medical Home Initiative included in the November 2014 Medical Care Supplement, Transforming Care for Vulnerable Populations: Lessons from the Safety Net Medical Home Initiative.
