What we’re all about
The Patient’s Medical Home is the future of family medicine in Canada. Since the original PMH vision was launched in 2011, progress has been made across the country—the provinces that have well-structured, long-term health care system reforms in place are performing the best. All provinces have shown progress in adopting the team-based, patient-centred, continuous, comprehensive, and accessible vision for primary care aligned with the PMH, but there remains an opportunity to do more.
The PMH 2019 captures the evolution of family medicine and refreshes the vision for the road ahead for family practices, their patients and policy makers.

FAMILY PRACTICE TEAMS
The combined skills and expertise of the interprofessional PMH team ensures patients can easily access a variety of services, and that they are given relationship-driven, compassionate care.
PMH strives to provide care that is centred on the needs and preferences of patients, their families and their communities. Patient perspectives and engagement play a crucial role.
Applying the pillars of the PMH in primary care reform, provincial health care authorities can realize the benefits of better care, convenient access, improved outcomes and increased satisfaction.
