Mahmud A, Timbie JW, Malsberger R, Setodji CM, Kress A, Hiatt L, Mendel P, Kahn KL. Examining differential performance of 3 medical home recognition programs. The American journal of managed care. 2018 Jul;24(7):334-40.
The authors examined differences in patient outcomes associated with 3 patient-centered medical home (PCMH) recognition programs. After 3‐years, PCMH practices had reduced primary care visits, reduced specialist visits, reduced ED visits, and reduced inpatient admissions in comparison to practices with no PCMH recognition. There was no change in ACSC inpatient admissions.
