How to transition to a PMH
The Patient’s Medical Home is a flexible model. It is designed to make changes to meet the needs of your patients and your professional goals based on where you are located and no matter where on the journey you are.
The first step is to review the supports for the PMH in your province by visiting your provincial page in our PMH in Canada section. Make use of the resources available to see how your provincial government supports various aspects of the PMH.
You can review the resources list on this page to build a background of evidence on what has worked in practice to support each pillar of the PMH, applying lessons as they seem relevant to your situation.
Some PMH champions have listed their contact information here. Contact your peers and find out how they have made the switch to a PMH practice in your province. We are always looking for more champions – maybe we’ll see you on the list one day?
Take our self-assessment. Our questionnaire is designed to help you learn where you are on the PMH spectrum and makes suggestions about where you can best improve based on your own answers. This will help you identify where to start.
From there, pick one aspect of the PMH model that speaks to your needs and start investigating how you can integrate changes to your practice. Over time you can add more changes as required.
The PMH isn’t binary. If you start with one aspect of the PMH and continue your journey towards a focus on the Patient’s Medical Home model of care, we think you will be surprised how far you can go.
On your way? Become a PMH champion!
